A natural slate roof with copper flashings provides a timeless aesthetic in one of the longest-lasting roofing systems. Utilizing various colors and profiles of S1-quality slates, these roofs are hand-nailed with a life expectancy of 75+ years.

Often found on older properties that were quality built in an era before asphalt shingles and on higher-end new construction, slate roofs provide a distinct natural appearance that often ties into the surrounding neighborhood. This is why many historic districts aim to preserve and maintain the aesthetic of slate roofs and often require an equivalent in-kind roof replacement. When this is the case, finding the right contractor familiar with traditional architectural details is key. With natural materials that will last, the key flashings points and proper installation methods are vital.
