RickJohn Roofing is Western Pennsylvania’s slate roofing expert.
We install and repair slate roofs and copper flashing. We can replace any missing or cracked slate or tile with new material or use aged roofing material from our vast stockpile collected over 40+ years in business.
Because slate is so durable and long lasting, as well as beautiful, a slate roof on your home can increase its value – especially when you are selling your home. Historically, you can command a higher price if you have a slate roof as opposed to an asphalt roof.
Slate roofing offers a timeless look. Slate tiles are cut from actual rock with natural patterns and color blends that run throughout the material. Each piece is unique and adds to your home’s aesthetic. It’s a stunning look for many types of homes, including ones that showcase certain architectural features. In neighborhoods where the maintenance and renovation of older homes requires maintaining a certain aesthetic, slate roofing is durable and of the highest quality.
Our new slate comes from Greenstone Slate in the Slate Valley of Vermont, which is renowned for crafting the world’s best quality slate. They combine traditional hand-cutting techniques with the latest manufacturing technology and quality control, enabling them to offer a 100 year guarantee. And, if for any reason pieces of slate require service over the years, they can be individually repaired and replaced, instead of replacing the entire roof.
Because of slate roofing’s unique properties, it requires copper flashing and finish work. We can custom fabricate on location or in our metal shop. Our copper is thick and durable and it serves as a stylish accent that compliments the natural beauty of slate.
