Natural roofing slate is a thing of beauty, a well sourced product, and when installed correctly, will protect your home for a century and beyond. A slate roof requires very little maintenance, and because it is so durable, it is resistant to chemical pollutants and acid rain. Natural slate is non-combustible and fireproof and-on top of all that-is the most environmentally friendly roofing material available today. The wealth and subtropical climate created by plantation agriculture has led to the emergence of some of South Carolina’s sophisticated buildings. South Carolina’s rich history, shaped by geographic diversity and culture, economic and political fortunes, Colonization, American Revolutionary War, Civil War and the Reconstruction years, have played a large part of the architectural styles of homes, courthouses, churches, government buildings and the universities we see today. The cultural diversity and early development of Charleston was influenced by French Protestants, English Immigrants, Scots, Germans, Sephardic Jews and Barbadians. By the 1760s, Charleston was one of the most architecturally sophisticated English colonies. South Carolina’s rich architectural style throughout the years include; Georgian (1700-1780), Federal (1780-1820), Greek Revival (1825-1860), Italianate (1840-1885) and Queen Anne (1880-1910). A great example of a Federal Georgian style home is the Ridgeley Hall in Aiken. Built in 1928, this is an impressive 11,000 square foot, 3 story brick house with a mansard slate roof.
