Vermont roofing slate comes in 10 colors and many different sizes and textures.
Evergreen Slate Co., Granville, N.Y., offers Vermont roofing slate in 10 colors and many different sizes and textures. The slate is made from dense, sound rock and is exceedingly tough and durable. It is practically nonabsorbtive, absolutely fire and waterproof, resistant to climatic changes, and has no disintegration. The standard smooth texture is 3/16- to 1/4-inch thickness with a smooth natural cleft surface. A 1/4- to 3/8-inch rough texture will give added texture for slightly more cost than the standard thickness. For additional roughness and texture, several thicknesses may be intermingled in each course of slate.
