Slate roofs are famously durable and long lasting, but need regular maintenance and occasional repairs to help them reach maximum longevity.
Your premium roof deserves a slate specialist to be its best (for decades to come). You can rely on us to do what's right for your slate roof.
Slate is a classic and hearty roofing material that adds elegance and distinctiveness to your home, place of worship, or business. Although slate can cost more to install, that initial expense is mitigated by its incredible longevity, produces less environmental waste than its synthetic counterparts, and imparts a high-quality, old world durability to your home and surroundings.
Slate roofs have been around for nearly 1,000 years. Old slate roofs have been discovered dating back to the early 1200’s in the United Kingdom. In the United States, slate roofing was first used in the 1600’s and the first commercial quarry was opened in the Peach Bottom area of Pennsylvania in 1785.
With proper installation and routine maintenance slate roofs can last for a century (or longer). Amateurs often mistreat or mishandle slate, resulting in an inferior product and avoidable repairs (and expenses).
