Does slate roofing belong only on historical homes? No way! Now with the brilliantly constructed lightweight hook installation system, slate roofing for the modern home has become a, Yes, Please!


Every day, homeowners turn their ordinary homes into something special by installing a genuine slate roof.

From Italian to Mediterranean, Mission-style to the modern ranch, slate roofing options offer a beautiful accent to any home style, no matter its age. The featured picture in this blog shows an example of a slate roof The Roofing Company installed on a modern Colonial-style ranch in Portsmouth.

Before the clever invention of lightweight slate, not every structure was suitable for the installation of slate roofing.  However, now with the lightweight slate hooked system any home can have a slate roof.  If you are interested in seeing how this system is installed, there is a video for your viewing below provided by the Newmont Slate Company.  

Whether traditional or lightweight slate, both offer the following benefits for your home.

  • Extremely durable
  • Very low maintenance
  • Long lifespan of 100 years or more
  • Non-combustible
  • Beautiful, distinctive and many color options
