Our unique approach to historic roofing.

Our Services

From slate or clay-tile roofing to copper gutters to precision ornamental metal work, The Durable Slate Company can handle any specialty roofing project of any size, anywhere. Whether small or large, all roof repairs receive the same attention and commitment to quality. You'll love our work.

Slate Roofing 

Expert slate roof restoration, repair, & replacement. No matter the building type, no matter the size, we provide the same premium service and attention to detail. Traditional roofing methods, lasting materials, and a classic approach to business is The Durable Way and slate roofing is our art.

And with such a large stock of reclaimed slate in America, we can match most slate for an exceptionally seamless repair or full roof replacement. If your slate roof has been damaged by fire, wind, storm, other forces of nature, or just requires a bit of upkeep, you can be confident in   The Durable Slate Company for your slate roof repair needs.

A thorough evaluation by a professional is provided by The Durable Slate Company at no additional cost to you to determine what is best for your slate roof.

Clay Tile Roofing

We install, repair and restore all types of clay roof tiles expertly, by contractors with in-depth knowledge and respect for the roofing material.

The repair and restoration of old clay tile roofs should only be done by a roofing contractor with suitable expertise; too often tile restoration is carried out by contractors without the in-depth knowledge and skill required, resulting in many ruined clay tile roofs. Choose Durable instead.



Copper Roofing

The Durable Slate Company installs all types of copper roofing including standing seam, batten seam, soldered flat lock, copper shingles, diamond pattern, and other custom systems.

With proper fastening, skilled handling of joints, and adequate consideration for thermal and building movement, a well-installed copper roof can last many decades with little or no maintenance.



Copper Gutters

We install all types of hanging copper gutters from standard 16oz. k-style to custom heavy gauge gutters with bar stock supports to withstand the harshest winters. We can replicate all ornamental gutters, collector heads, and downspouts.

Leaks in these gutter systems can cause extensive interior damage, and, if not properly repaired, may result in structural damage.




Ornamental Metal

Though slate and metal roofs have much intrinsic beauty, patterns in the roof and ornamental elements such as finials, collector heads, decorative cornice, and other fancy metallic roof protrusions add another aspect of beauty to the exterior fabric. These items can also uniquely customize new roof installations.
