Why Choose Slate Roofing?
Because slate is stone that is formed in compressed layers, it can be hand-split into smooth thin pieces that have been used for roofing for centuries around the world. Thickness and dimension vary depending on how the stone is prepared. There are a variety of natural colors (green, gray, purple, black, and red) to choose from. Some colors will weather to earth tones with exposure to weather. Other colors have natural ribbons of darker shades within each piece. This variety can create slate roofs that offer a distinct beauty to different styles of architecture.
It takes a skilled roofer with the vision to create a certain look to guide the roofing project from concept, to design, to installation. It is key to order the right slate combinations from the right slate quarry to achieve the desired look. The best slate is quarried from Vermont and New York. Great examples of the variety of slate roofs can be seen in Milwaukee, Shorewood, Whitefish Bay, Fox Point, Bayside, and Wauwatosa.
