As an early Colonial and Revolutionary powerhouse state, Ohio has long entrenched its status as one of America’s most productive territories. A pivotal hub in U.S. and North American shipping corridors, as well as an icon of the American Heartland, the Buckeye State enjoys a reputation as a critical cog in the engine of American prosperity. Given its military contribution to the American Revolutionary War, as well as its proximity to the famed Pennsylvania Peach Bottom Slate Bed, Ohio has developed an historical tradition for natural slate roofs on its institutional, religious, and military buildings within its borders.
North Country Slate has been supplying Ohio with the best quality North American roofing slate shingles for more than two decades. Many private homes from Cincinnati to Cleveland and all the cities in between have chosen North Country Slate to put a 100-year roof atop their houses.

Preferred as a roofing material for more than 1,000 years, slate shingles have proven their reliability for many centuries. Slate rock, which is produced within the Earth’s core over the course of millions of years, was carved by hand into slate tiles with the hammer and chisel available at the time, and although technology has improved considerably since the early days, slate tiles are still carved today with chisels and hammers. Slate extraction involves no harmful chemicals or environmental hazards, making it one of the most environmentally sustainable roofing materials available. Additionally, its strength and durability guarantee a service life that far outlasts lesser roofing shingles, saving the cost and hassle of roof repair or reconstruction.

As the heyday of Pennsylvania slate quarrying has met its sundown, slate quarries are still operating in other areas of the United States and Canada . We source our slate from the best quarries in New York, Vermont, and Virginia, although the closest match for the famous Pennsylvania Peach Bottom slate is our Unfading Black slate, quarried in Quebec, Canada.
The approximate cost of a slate roof will usually run between $600-800 per 100 square feet of roofing area, depending upon the slate selected. The cost of slate is calculated based upon the slate’s working properties and relative scarcity. A more workable and readily available slate like our Semi-Weathering Gray/Green slate tiles will tend to the more affordable end, while a slate that is hard to find and difficult to quarry like our Unfading Red slate will be more costly.
