High Quality Fabrication, Installation, Flashing and Waterproofing of
Copper, Slate, Tile and Other Metal Roofing as well as Specialty Architectural Effects
NEW SLATE ROOFS
We install S-1 Grade slates from quarries in Vermont which are known to last 55 to 75 years. Popular colors are semi-weathering green, gray, black and purple.
We install new clay and concrete tiles. Popular styles are Spanish, French, Mission and various rustic shingle tile patterns.
SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS
We are specialists in the replacement of worn-out flashings and underlayments in restoring older roofs to their original integrity. This work is usually needed on slate and tile roofs over 50 years of age.
Our highly skilled workers can solve the most difficult and challenging roof problems, or very small repairs such as a few broken tiles.

Excellent for large or intricate projects requiring difficult procedures, this machine accomplishes a variety of tasks with incredible efficiency, eliminating waste of material, time and expense.
First, there's the one about cost. Some people think copper is more expensive than other roofing materials. There's a myth if we ever heard one!
COPPER OR ARCHITECTURAL
OR RESTORATIVE WORK
In addition to the fabrication and installation of specialty sheet metal items to match existing or original architectural designs for historic restorations or new applications which includes copper gutters (hanging and inlaid), downspouts, scupper boxes, fascias, cornices, finials, copings, decorative copper snow guards, standing seam roofs, flat-lock seam-soldered roofs and roof flashings, the company also provides expertise in single-ply flatroofs, skylight installation and flashing when the project calls for it.
Tangible proof test data has proven that creativity need not be restricted by the belief that unusual design or use of natural materials would compromise the success of a roof. According to the results of testing done by The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association (SMACNA), custom-fabricated roofs will stand up more than adequately when subjected to simulated storm conditions. These include roofs using endless creative options with beautiful, durable metal that will age as naturally as the building matures. In addition, one should not hesitate to incorporate skylights, penthouses, or a roof terrace, which were, prior to these test results, hampered by the flashing, sealant and exposed fastener constraints of the pre-packaged systems previously thought to be the only safe options. This test evidence has newly opened roof material options to move beyond the restrictive painted steel and aluminum to now include beloved natural metals like copper and stainless steel.
