Slate and Synthetic Slate

Slate Roofs

Slate roofs are the most expensive roofs but many believe that they offer unsurpassed beauty.  Additionally, slate roofs last well over a hundred years and therefore offer unrivaled durability.  We offer a variety of slate styles and thicknesses from domestic and European quarries to meet your preferences.

Synthetic Slate Roofs

We also sell DaVinci synthetic slate.  Synthetic slate looks very similar to real slate but weighs less.  Many homes are not structured to accept the heavy weight of a slate roof whereas all homes can hold the lighter weight of synthetic slate.  Synthetic slate also costs significantly less than real slate as it is easier to install.  You can read more about DaVinci synthetic slate at the following link: http://www.davinciroofscapes.com/.

We are a DaVinci Masterpiece Contractor, which means we have been through training on the correct installation procedures and have been nominated by the DaVinci territory manager to be part of the Masterpiece program.  Among other things, this enables us to extend the non pro-rated portion of the 50-year warranty from 10 to 15 years.

DaVinci slate has a lot of benefits over other synthetic slates.  For example, the product has a web-backed design to prevent cupping (curling) of the slate.  DaVinci slate comes in many different colors, has superior fade resistance qualities, and comes with an outstanding warranty.  Davinci slate also has a class 4 impact rating, which may reduce your homeowners insurance by approximately 10% if you have a traditional asphalt-based shingle.

We Were Totally Pleased

A Plus Roofing recently replaced our roof, and we were very pleased with their professionalism, attention to detail, and the overall quality of the job they did. From the initial quoting process, during which Bill Kain explained how they would do things and the extra things A Plus Roofing would do to make the job look and go well, to the care of the actual workers in protecting everything around our house as they did their work, to the final cleanup of the job, we were totally pleased with our choice in contractors. I plan to use A Plus Roofing for other work on my house in the future (gutters done with roof, siding and window work in the plan), and I will heartily recommend them to all of my friends and neighbors without hesitation.

Excellent Experience

The experience with A+ Roofing was excellent. I would recommend this company for their courteous, professional, and efficient service and expertise. We are most pleased with our new roof and the workmanship of the project. The roofing crew was amazing to watch....so hardworking and professional. Mr. Kain was in touch during the whole project and we knew were in good hands. Many thanks!

We Are Very Satisfied

This was our first roofing experience. We checked the company out online and asked the company for references from previous jobs. I talked to two previous customers (1 asphalt roof and 1 metal roof on residential homes) and both couldn't say enough good things about the company, their crews and the quality of their work. We are very satisfied and would definitely recommend them to others.

Would Definitely Recommend!

The team was professional and thorough. The house looks like a completely different house with the beautiful new roof! There was not a speck of debris left in our yard. After the roof was on and the materials were cleaned up, I was impressed to see the workers carefully going around our whole property using giant magnets to pick up any loose nails that may have fallen.  We've had over a foot of snow and several heavy rains and have been very snug under our new roof. Would definitely recommend!
