While this roof is one of the costliest to install for your home, business, or church there is a reason. The first slate comes from sedimentary rock that is derived from volcanic ashes and natural clay. They take these rocks and sew them into blocks a little larger than the slate that we'll install on your roof. Once it has been sawed then the slate is gauged for additional thickness and refined with a finish that can be torched with gas flames before being blasted with freezing water to create the idea of slate tile for a roof that is not only durable but fire and waterproof making them worthy of those who want a roof that is not only beautiful but a one of a kind original because no two tiles are created alike.
