Greenstone Vermont slate roof with graduated slate thicknesses and lengths
This Bedford residence’s original roof was in need of a replacement. For this reroof, genuine slate was installed for its inherent durability and natural historic appearance. The Greenstone Slate Company was selected to supply the Vermont ASTM S1 slate in a historic blend of slate.
For visual interest and the preservation of the home’s original aesthetics, the slate was supplied at graduated thicknesses and lengths as well as slates with random widths. The slates then were installed with the thickest grade slates at the eaves and the thinner grade slates at the ridge, a slate roof design style commonly seen on older, larger residences such as this one, institutions and churches.
