The Germans know how to install a great looking and practical roof! The shapes of the German style slates are designed and installed to the direction of the prevailing winds so that the water runs along the curved lower edge and down the face of the slate. A bogenschnitt can be ordered “right” or “left”. A Waben looks like a honeycomb pattern. A Schuppen has a fish scale appearance due to the side lapping installation. This installation style is common in central and northern Europe.

We currently have some North Country Trinity Heather (purple Bogens) in inventory, please call us at Toll Free 1-800-975-2835.
