The Unique Process of Selecting Slate

Leo J Roth uses a specific process to supply our customers with a wide range of slate colors and textures. We visit rock quarries in Vermont and Virginia, each having slates of different qualities. Slate from Virginia will have a familiar grey/blue/black color, and glisten in the sun due to the mica content. Vermont has more unique slate colors, coming in shades of green, red, purple, or mottled purple. Different slate types also have different life expectancies, something important to discuss with your roofer.

If you’re considering a new slate roof, or a slate roof repair, don’t hesitate to reach out to Leo J Roth for a free quote today.
