Unfading Red Roofing Slate is an extremely rare and expensive roofing slate only found in our Vermont slate vein. Its unique red color, excellent performance and natural texture make it a very desirable roofing slate for institutional, commercial and residential roofing projects. It is appropriate for both traditional and contemporary architecture. Being an “unfading” slate, this durable material will hold its basic color after many years of exterior use. It will vary in terms of color shade and markings. Unfading Red Roofing Slate is available in many sizes and thicknesses.
