College Hill Charm

Many of the historic homes of Easton's College Hill neighborhood were built with slate roofs, one of the longest-lasting roofing options available on today's market. In fact, slate shingles can last at least 125 years and sometimes as long as 200 years.

 

We were called to 700 Mixsell Street, a gorgeous home built in 1900.  The roof of the main home just needed several shingles replaced but the garage was in disrepair. Bangor blue slate was the material of choice for the full roof replacement on the garage. The biggest of all benefits regarding slate is its strength as it can withstand all types of weather patterns, year after year. Slate will not rust or attract mold and is fire-resistant. Basically, a home is a whole lot safer with slate roofing.
