Hardin County, located in the heart of downtown Savannah, TN is named after Colonel Joseph Hardin, a veteran of the Revolutionary War. The Hardin County Courthouse was built in 1952 with handmade bricks from Virginia, limestone from Indiana and slate shingles from Vermont.
Built in 1889, this grand 20,540 square foot brick Romanesque Revival building is one of the oldest farmer’s markets in the United States. The original slate roof was replaced with asphalt shingles 30 years ago to save money but started failing in 2010.
Natural roofing slate is quarried from the earth unlike fake, composite, faux, recycled rubber, synthetic slate products which are produced in a factory.
When it comes to selecting a roofing material most home and building owners want to know how much it costs and how long it will last.
