About Us

Established in Columbus, Ohio, over thirty years ago, we started as a small slate roofing company. Through quality service, sound methods, and professional integrity, we quickly grew and now offer our roofing services nationwide. We follow The Durable Way: Incredible craft, service, transparency, and professional integrity.

The Durable Slate Company is equipped for every slate, clay-tile, or copper roof on any kind of building. Residential, commercial, or place of worship, new roof or a century standing. With us, your historic roof will truly stand the test of time and look beautiful for ages to come.
With one of the largest stocks of reclaimed slate and clay-tile in the country, we can match most historic roofs whether performing a complete restoration, or installing slate or clay-tile on an addition, or repairing large sections damaged by fire, wind, storms, and other forces of nature.

The repair and restoration of historic roofs should only be done by a roofing contractor with suitable expertise; too often slate and clay-tile restoration is carried out by contractors without the in-depth knowledge and skill required, resulting in many ruined historic roofs.
In addition, The Durable Slate Company installs all types of copper roofing including standing seam, batten seam, soldered flat lock, copper shingles, diamond pattern, and other custom systems.

Completing our suite of professional services, we install all types of hanging copper gutters from standard 16oz. k-style to custom heavy gauge gutters with bar stock supports to withstand the harshest winters. We can also replicate all ornamental gutters, collector heads, and downspouts.
