A decade is a long time, and we’re going stronger than ever (and so are our snow guards that have been installed over the years). Long story short: We’ve KEEP READING

First, and most importantly, Happy New Year to our clients, partners, friends and industry peers! We hope your time over the holidays was spent with family and friends, and was a warm, memorable and happy time for everyone.

From the Archives: Road Map for Slate Roofing Success

This past week I was looking through some of our archives for a photo from 2004. Although I had zero luck in finding that photo, imagine my delight when I came across old copies of the printed (and snail-mailed) newsletter we used to put out, the Slate Roof Quarterly.

BIM Me Up, Scotty!

I feel it’s important to first point out that, while the title of this blog post is a play on words from Star Trek, I am not, nor have I ever been, a fan of the show. I think the only reason this is, is because of the fact that I grew up way out in the country, on a 5-mile dirt road, with a rotor KEEP READING
