With close access to a natural stone quarry, many homeowners in and around Richmond choose slate as their roofing material. Slate is popular because it creates a natural, attractive, high-end look that helps your house stand out in your neighborhood. It’s also extremely durable, withstanding extreme wind, rain, snow and fire. In addition, damage to a slate roof can be repaired without having to do a full replacement. With proper care, a slate roof can last up to 200 years! Hammersmith Roofing & Construction offers both natural or synthetic slate to suit your needs and to get the look you want.
