Slate roofs date back the very beginning of our country and are one of the most aesthetically pleasing and durable of all conventional roofing materials. Slate roofing has been acclaimed for generations as the ultimate roofing material. Slate roof tiles are made of a natural stone that has the remarkable ability to be sliced or split into thin shingles of uniform thickness. A slate roof simply has no equal in durability, and its natural beauty enhances the appearance of nearly any building with its rich natural color and texture.
Slate roofs require relatively little maintenance and can last a century or longer depending on the type of slate used, roof style and shape, and the weather.
In Louisville and Southern Indiana, a wide variety of slate roofing can be found on residential, institutional, ecclesiastical, and government buildings. Slate is used where longevity is an especially important consideration.
