Slate quarried for roofing stock is of dense, sound rock and exceedingly tough and durable. Slate roofs have lasted a century, giving excellent long-term value, in contrast to other types of manufactured roofing which must be re-roofed three or four times within this same period.

Slate colors, sizes and texture afford many architectural effects, contributing to the appearance and beauty of any building. Our experienced staff can provide detailed information and architectural services from single size 1/4" thickness applications to intermingled rough texture in random widths to graduated length and thickness. The slates we choose are quarried from all over the world, giving many slate types, colors and blends.
