A Vermont Slate roof can last a century. Available in a variety of sizes, colors and textures, slate roofing offers many architectural effects. Any of them will contribute to the beauty and value of your building. Slate roofs accent homes, churches, libraries, government buildings and universities.
All of our Vermont Slate has been tested according to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Material) guidelines and has received the highest ranking.
