Installation of slate or copper roofing systems requires specialized skill and knowledge. Slate and copper possess unique material qualities. Not all roofing contractors are trained and skilled to install them properly. We are one of the few roofing contractors in Maine with that capability.
Slate roofs are not only beautiful, but offer a durability that has proven the test of time. The life cycle of a slate roof is approximately 100 years, and some have lasted centuries. Slate is a natural material, mined from quarries (often in Maine) and hand-crafted into the finished product. A slate roof most often fails from the natural wear of aging materials. A newer slate may fail because of improper installation by an inexperienced contractor. With an often large knowledge gap between modern roofing systems and slate roofing, hiring a roofing contractor who is trained and experienced in slate installation is critical. G&E Roofing is proud to be one such contractor.
Copper roofing is a unique type of metal roofing. It stands out among other materials because of its vibrant character, proven durability, and its beautiful appearance. Versatility in roofing applications makes it a great fit for many buildings. Copper is a traditional roofing material known for its exceptional performance. When installed properly, a copper roof is a very economical long-term solution, offering proven longevity and low maintenance costs. Its malleability, especially on irregular roof structures, makes it an ideal option.
If you are considering a slate or copper roof installation at your commercial facility, G&E is proud to serve you as one of Maine's most qualified specialty roofing contractors.
