High Quality New Slate Roofing Installation
Slate roofing has been the traditional choice for hundreds of years, and we can still see many examples of beautiful slate roofs on today’s historical and heritage properties. When building a new home, many designers, contractors and home owners also choose to incorporate a new slate roof that reflects this traditional style. No matter the age of your home, this roofing material will withstand the harshest conditions and environments without showing signs of damage.
Installation of these stone titles requires a team of highly skilled professionals, as they are heavier and more complex to install than other materials. Without the proper care and attention of a trained installer, slate roofs can cause damage to your home due to their weight. Proper installation is absolutely essential to the longevity of your slate roofing system.
If your residential property currently has a slate roof and is in need of repair or restoration, a professional inspection will allow you to assess the current state of the roof and decide on if an entire replacement is necessary. Here at Heather & Little, we have assisted home owners like you with their new slate roof installations, slate roof repairs and replacements for more than 90 years. You can trust our craftsmen to restore the beauty of your existing slate roof, or install a completely new system that adds value to your home for years to come.
