Stone-Coated Steel

Stone coated steel has made its mark in the roofing industry and continues to offer progressive advantages and benefits to homeowners. It is well suited for both new construction and renovation and is becoming more visible on residential and commercial exteriors. It is available in an array of colors, contours and styles. Its strong composition allows it to withstand the elements, but its elegant aesthetic appeal satisfies even the most refined tastes.

Slate

Slate is a natural material formed during the geologic time period known as the Early Paleozoic era, some 435 to 570 million years ago. As such, the vast majority of slate shingles present on our roofs today, and which continue to be quarried, originated some half-billion years before humans roamed the earth.

The color of slate is determined by its chemical and mineralogical composition. Since these factors differ in various localities, it is possible to obtain roofing slates in a variety of colors and shades. Upon exposure to the weather, all slate is changed slightly in color. The extent of this color change varies with different slate beds, being barely perceptible in certain slates. Those slates in which the color changes but slightly are classed as "permanent" or "unfading." Those in which the color change is more marked and varied are known as "semi-weathering" and "weathering" slates.
