Slate is still installed the way it has been for hundreds of years. Most slate comes with two pre-punched holes, to enable the installer to nail it to the roof. Manuals with complete instructions on how to properly install a natural slate roof are available on our “Resources” (click here to visit.) page. Or call us at 804-745-4100. Our company will e-mail; fax, or mail our entire manual on how to install a Natural Slate Roof free of charge.
