The Jenkins family's passion for slate began in 1968, since then, they've contributed greatly to the slate industry due in large part to the publication of The Slate Roof Bible, the formation of the Slate Roofing Contractors Association of North America, the creation of the largest Traditional Roofing Store in the world, and the publication of the Traditional Roofing Magazine.

The Jenkins family's dedication to the slate industry shines through in their quality of work. 

“He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”

― Francis of Assisi
