Slate Roof Training

Continuous improvement training and education is an ongoing event between the staff in all departments.The production staff perfects its hands on skills at the mock up station in the warehouse just behind the administration office at 2106 Aluminum Avenue in Hampton, VA. It is common practice that on heavy rain days, when our production staff is unable to work on a customer’s home, they will be in the training center. Slate roofing is an art and takes practice to perfect. This is why any slate roofing contractor who has been dedicated to training and educating themselves to learn the most they can about slate roofing will pride themselves on being a master. Those that aren’t yet masters, learn here, at our Hampton Roads Roofing and Slate Roofing Training Center. What a great place to learn too since Brian Chalsma, President of The Roofing Company and The Remodeling Company, is also the President of the National Slate Association, which gives our slate roof installers and those learning the trade the advantage to being trained and educated on the most up-to-date information and practice.  Certified through the National Slate Association and members of the Slate Roofing Contractors Association of North America. 

This is the facility where new slate roofers learn and the expert slate roofers train and educate. The Roofing Company crew is widely regarded as the premier, full-service slate roofers in Hampton Roads. Since 1998, we have provided installation and repair of slate roofs on historical and modern roof systems.  Big or small, residential or commercial, we can expertly handle each phase of your slate roofing project.
