Slate is one of the most aesthetically pleasing and durable of
all modern roofing materials. Installed properly, slate roofs require
relatively little maintenance and will last 60 to 125 years or longer!
When it comes time to install a new slate roof on your building, you
will be ahead of the game if you are using Goodman Construction, because
we can supply more than just labor and materials for your roof. We will
also assist with the selection of color, color blend proportion,
manufacturer, and installation method. We can also devise an
installation schedule that will fit your time constraints.
Goodman Construction regularly engages in complicated historical
restoration roofing projects involving slate roofs and slate roof
repair. Over the years we have developed special methods for removing
existing roofs, saving a large percentage of the existing slates, and
reinstalling them over your newly dried-‐in and waterproofed roof (note
that slate roofs last up to 100+ years!). In doing this, we will always
end up with fewer slates than we started with for one of two reasons:
either some were broken during removal (waste factor-‐ we keep this as
low as possible) or some were already broken from storms, wind, or
impact debris. We then come up with the remaining amount of slates
needed to finish your roof. Our solution for this is proprietary, but it
saves you money!
