The slogan “Everything is Bigger in Texas” is just as true for slate roofing as it is for everything else the Lone Star State is famous for! Just like its instantly recognizable ten-gallon hats and the ever-popular Dallas Cowboys, North Country Slate has become a staple in the Texas triangle’s major cities in the last two decades. Slate has long been the preferred roofing material for many of Texas’ churches, courthouses, and government buildings, and North Country Slate has quickly emerged as the slate supplier of choice for institutions and private individuals alike. In fact, no fewer than 15 of Texas’ historic courthouse are now adorned with different colors of North Country Slate! In addition to the air of historic significance that slate roofs bestow upon institutions, slate roofs also bestow a natural majesty on the roofs of private homes. North Country Slate’s full range of colors has been installed across some of Houston’s most desirable neighborhoods, including Piney Point, River Oaks, and Tanglewood. North Country Slate has been installed on roofs across the Texas triangle, from Westlake to San Antonio.

Slate is a 100% natural roofing material, formed underground by the forces of nature more than 5 million years ago. It is one of the oldest roofing materials still in use today, dating back to Scotland nearly 1,000 years ago. Due to its natural origin, slate is also one of the most environmentally friendly roofing materials available.
