Natural slate roofing enhances any home. Aesthetically, it adds quality and gravitas to any design. Functionally, it is one of the longest lasting roof products and, made correctly, needs little maintenance. There is one thing modern technology has not changed: Vermont slate roofs still offer more lasting and reliable protection than any substitute. Architects specify our 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. Whether you are looking for a grey slate roof, mixed color roof slates, green roof slates, graduated thickness slate roof tiles or any other kind of natural slate roof that fits your design, we will accommodate your design large or small.
We quarry our own roofing slate and control production at various important stages: we quarry blocks and cut them “on the grain” for a stronger product.
