Installation of slate roofing requires patience, care, an eye for detail and a true craftsman’s skill. Innovative has installed the entire range of slate roofing styles and systems, and is skilled in slate roof repairs. From custom graduations and a full palette of colors, to custom sizes and a wide range of finishes, we can install any pattern, size or style to match the historic look of your home.

Natural slate roofing is available in three levels of quality—S1, S2, and S3. The highest-quality slate, S1, provides the longest life expectancy with regard to resistance to water absorption, weathering and breakage. Standing behind our commitment to excellence, Innovative offers a free upgrade to S1 grade slate from S2 or S3 slate.  


When properly installed, a natural slate roof requires relatively little maintenance and can easily last 100 years or more. Deciding whether a slate roof should be repaired or replaced can be challenging. Consequently, each roof should be evaluated individually by a professional.

Our experienced slate roofing crews are rigorously trained to accurately assess the condition of your roof and determine if it is in need of repair or replacement. Innovative Construction & Roofing’s detailed analysis and reporting process uncovers even the smallest roof defects. After a roof inspection, we will give you an objective report on the condition of your roof and our recommendation on whether it needs repairs or a full roof replacement. This documentation is required to maximize your chances of claim approval.
