From slate quarries in the United Sates, Europe, China and South America, the enduring beauty of slate roofs in colors ranging from grey, blue-grey, black and various shades of green, purple and red are the pinnacle design feature on many historic buildings. Increased appreciation of long-lasting, environmentally friendly building materials has led to resurgence in new slate roofs.
Slate, a time-tested, sustainable roof system can be the longest lasting component of your entire structure. The long-life span of slate roofs can minimize the impact on the environment, conserving resources and avoiding repetitive roof replacement. Although considered the highest initial cost point of any roofing material, the longevity and low maintenance of natural slate roofs provides a low cost of ownership in the long term.
