Natural slate roofing enriches the overall appeal of a building while affording more lasting and reliable protection than any substitute. Architects specify our own Vermont roofing slates for their unfading and weathering colors, durability, ‘on-the-grain’ fabrication and high quality standards. And because we produce slate roofing tiles in custom sizes, shapes and thickness, architects also appreciate the flexibility our materials afford them in their designs. Our domestic slates have been widely used for roofing since the early 1800s. A slate roof is an excellent choice for both new construction and historic restoration.
