Slate Roofs

Slate Roofs

Waterproof, fireproof, time honored

The distinctive of-this-earth aesthetic of a slate roof is enough to make you pull off to the side of the road to admire it. Having originated in Europe, where it remains a faux pas to replace them with asphalt shingles, slate roofs are a recognized symbol of durability, integrity, craftsmanship, and rich history. When properly crafted, they can last the life of your house.

Features & Benefits:

  • Natural origin and appearance
  • Adds European “flavor” to a home
  • Long life span, ranging from 100-400 years
  • Low maintenance
  • Slate for Vermont roofing projects can be sourced locally from Vermont’s own “Slate Valley” — world renowned both for the durability and diverse palette of its slate.
