Slate has been acclaimed for generations as the ultimate roofing material. It is natural stone that has the remarkable ability to be manufactured into thin tiles of uniform thickness. A slate roof simply has no equal in durability and natural beauty. Slate enhances the aesthetic design of nearly any building with its variety of rich natural slate colors and slate textures. There are many benefits to a slate roof from longevity and appearance to energy conservation.
Advanced materials technology has generated some new roofing materials over the years, but slate remains the clear leader in creating the world’s longest lasting and most trouble-free roofing material. It is the standard by which all others are compared.
Lightweight slate systems are perfect for cedar shake roof replacement, upgrades or new construction with reduced structural costs. These two technologies dramatically reduce roof weight and amount of slate needed for a genuine slate roof.
All Greenstone Slate comes from our 58 quarries and manufactured into roofing slates in our Poultney, Vermont facilities.
