Time-Honored Craft, Classic Service

Slate is a premium roofing material, valued for its incomparable beauty and longevity.

Alongside clay roofing tile and metal, slate tiles come in a variety of styles, color, and shape, enabling a custom solution for your home or expansion. And with one of the nation’s largest stock-piles of recovered slate, we can ably match your slate shingles for a nearly seamless repair.

Beyond its beauty, slate is naturally fire resistant and a good insulator, keeping your home well fitted against disaster.

Historic Roofing is our Specialty

That said, slate can be a challenging material to install correctly; amateur or jack-of-all-trade contractors offer slate installation alongside more common roofing products and install slate as thoughtlessly as an asphalt shingle. Slate intense endurance – lasting a century or longer – depends on how capably it has been installed. Cut corners will fail well before your slate shingles do, demanding premature and sometimes costly repairs. Skip the heartache of a leaking roof; rely on a slate roof specialist.

Beyond Washington, you might spot one of our trademark red trucks near Baltimore, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Potomac, Takoma Park, Annapolis, and beyond.
