Synthetic Slate Installation on a historic Guilford, CT farmhouse.
A historic restoration on this late 1800s Guilford, CT Farmhouse-style residence. The owners wanted a traditional look but also wanted to take advantage of more modern materials so we recommended a synthetic slate roof with traditional copper flashing.
After stripping the previous roof using Asbestos Removal protocols, we repaired roof decking as necessary, installed a glacier guard vapor barrier, and then a course of Echostar Empire Slate 10″ synthetic slate shingles in Manhattan Midnight color. We flashed valleys and protrusions with traditional copper flashing, and repointed the chimney.
