Slate Roof Systems - Slate Roofing Repairs - Slate Roof Restoration

 

Slate roofs, among our specialties, have been around for hundreds of years. Slate roofs are by far the most effective longest lasting material any home owner or commercial builder can install.

 

We pride ourselves with our slate roof experience. We are considered Master Slater's using the old T bar and Slater's hammers to cut and install all slate.

 

We offer full slate roof services:

  • Slate roof installations

  • Slate roof repairs

  • New construction slate roofs

  • Residential slate roofs

  • Commercial slate roofs

  • A vast variety of slate colors from today's leading slate manufactures.

 

Our slate roofing skills are permanent and so will be your slate roof!

 

Standard lengths are 12", 14", 16", 18", 20", 22" and 24". Standard widths vary somewhat depending on the lengths. The narrowest common width is 1/2 the height (for example: 12" x 6", 14" x 7", 16" x 8" etc.). Dimensions of 13" are traditionally avoided. In recent years, with the influx of slate from outside the US, metric sizes are increasingly common. Slate sizes outside the "normal" range are available but are often more expensive due to the non-standard production requirements.

Slate roofing is normally priced by the "square." One square of slate is the amount of slate necessary to cover 100 square feet of roof area. The number of slates required to cover 100 square feet of roof varies with the slate size. 

Standard thickness for most slate production is "nominal 1/4" (approximately 3/16" to 5/16"). Thicker slate generally costs more and because of the increased weight, is more expensive to ship and install. Weight per square increases with the thickness. The rule of thumb is 750 pounds for one square of nominal 1/4" slate and increasing proportionally with an increase in thickness. (1500 pounds per square for 1/2" slate, 2250 pounds per square for 3/4" and so on...)

We also install Tamko Lamarite and Slate Select products

Both offer a 50 year warranty.
