Genuine Slate Roof Repair and Installation in Greater Washington

Genuine slate roofs are extremely durable, yet elegant and iconic, as illustrated by the many historic homes and buildings in Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland, with their original slate roof in tact.

Unlike synthetic slate roof tiles, genuine slate roof tiles are made from fine-grained rock, and cut into uniform sections, which increase their durability and natural beauty. They are environmentally friendly, and do not stain like many synthetic materials. Genuine slate roofs are available in a number of vibrant and muted colors and hues, such as reds, grays, blacks, purples and mottled, solid and variegated greens. Slate roofing adds distinction and refinement to any home.

Durability & Maintenance

As slate roofs age, they become more fragile. Extreme caution must be exercised when servicing a slate roof to prevent inadvertent damage. Only contractors with extensive experience with slate roofing should perform maintenance and repairs. Maintenance for genuine slate roofs involves moss and algae control, as well as replacing broken or missing slate tiles as needed.

Why install a slate roof?
  • Genuine slate roofing offers the longest lifespan out of all the roofing materials.
  • They can last almost up to a century if properly installed and maintained.
  • They're not affected by pests or insects.
  • Slate roofing is non-combustible.
  • Genuine slate roofs are tough against all the elements.
A few important things to know about slate roof installation
  • Genuine slate roofs are made of rock, which means they are extremely heavy.
  • Special design considerations must be made to support the weight.
  • Of the conventional roofing materials, genuine slate roofs are the most expensive roofs to install.

Tom Green is wonderful. He is a true professional. He did a thorough inspection of my current roof and a ventilation issues I was having in my attic. He gave wonderful advice and a great solution, plus recommended a product that I like very much. Exterior Medics has been used by a family member for many years and they always provided exceptional work.
Roofers were clean, professional, knowledgeable, and courteous to existing neighbors. Project manager kept me informed every step of the way! I highly recommend!

We had a great experience with Exterior Medics. They replaced our roof which was 30+ years old along with gutters. The price was very reasonable (much better than many other companies that gave us quotes) and Ron was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process.

I am employed with an HOA Management company, and we work very closely with Exterior Medics for a number of our communities' needs. Melanie has excellent customer service skills, she is very professional, and always quick to respond to emails or phone calls. I would definitely recommend this company if you care about quality service and workmanship!

Crew was on time; excellent work; cleaned up properly after the work was completed. Mr. Ernesto Lopez was the supervisor and he was extremely responsive. He listened to our concerns and made certain that all of the work was done to a high standard and met our approval with a final review. Office staff also extremely responsive. Would highly recommend this company.
