Heathermoor Roofing Slate is a distinctive, relatively rare Vermont roofing slate. Because of its performance qualities, unique gray appearance and rich texture, architects repeatedly specify this natural Vermont slate for institutional and residential roofing projects. This roofing slate can “weather”, meaning it will take on brownish tones over time. Heathermoor Roofing Slate is available in many sizes and thicknesses.
Medium charcoal gray with varying amounts of black veining and spots.
“Semi-weathering”, meaning that some pieces change color when used outside and others do not. Those that do take on brownish tones. (Heathermoor Roofing Slate’s weathering characteristic is an aesthetic consideration and does not adversely affect its performance or durability).
Exceptionally strong and hard, durable, dense, low absorption rate, resistant to freeze-thaw cycles. Stain- and fire-resistant. No detrimental effects on the environment.
Minimal. Broken shingles can be easily replaced with the use of a slate ripper.
