Slate is a natural roofing product created by geological forces over the course of millions of years. It has been successfully used as a roofing material for more than 1,000 years, earning a well-deserved reputation as a reliable and dependable roofing shingle, capable of withstanding the most extreme weather conditions. Slate shingles are typically applied in sizes ranging from 16-20″ in length by 8-12″ in width, and different widths can be combined to create a truly unique aesthetic for your roof. Its extraordinary service life and natural extraction processes contribute to slate being among the most environmentally friendly and affordable roofing materials available.

Historically, most of the slate produced in the United States was quarried in Pennsylvania’s famous Peach Bottom Slate Belt. While quarrying in Pennsylvania has largely drawn to a close, we source our top-quality slate from quarries in states as diverse as Virginia, Vermont, and New York, as well as our famous Unfading Black slate roofing tile that is quarried in Quebec, Canada.
Most roofing slates are between 16 and 20 inches in length, although they are produced in lengths as great as 24 inches for special projects. Roofing slates are never wider than half of their length. Most field slates are 18 or 20 inches in length and 9 to 14 inches in width. Shorter slates, from 12 to 16 inches in length, are used for hip and ridge roof sections.
