Slate, Tile and Copper Roofing
Maintenance - The majority of our work consists of maintaining the slate roofs located in Western Pennsylvania and into Eastern Ohio. This normally consists of repairing broken, damaged or poorly repaired slates and replacing old flashings (i.e. chimney, valley, ridge, sewer vent flashings).
Complete roof restoration - Though small jobs are welcome we do prefer to complete full roof restorations of the existing slate by removing any damaged, broken, or missing slates and old, worn-out flashings.
New installation - New slate comes in many shapes, sizes, thicknesses and colors, and has characteristics aesthetically unparalleled by any other roof. If installed correctly slate roofs will last centuries and can easily cost less than any other roofing product over the lifetime of the building.

Ornamental Slate Work
- Custom signs, shapes, symbols, animals, family surnames, patterns, etc. The sky is the limit when it comes to ornamental slate work.
- Ornamental slate work is almost none existent in North America unlike the European market. It's a very skilled craft with only a few known ornamental slaters in all of North America. It's a very slow, time consuming process which renders a product that is waterproof and that will last many generations.
- Custom slate siding - Slate siding will last centuries and will never need painted, oiled or stained. It's not normally thought of as a siding material because of its expense and weight, but it can be installed in certain applications.
