Natural Roofs

Natural Roofs


Slate, Cedar, Living Roofs.



Every home, addition, or accessory building needs a good roof on it. Again we try to use natural and local materials as much as possible. Roofing systems we have used on recent projects include… Living roof; which replaces the habitat lost by the building footprint, slows runoff, and has a very natural look. Cedar shakes; a popular roof which if properly sourced can be highly sustainable and long lasting. Slate tiles; which are quite possibly the worlds best roofing material. Slate is minimally processed natural and available locally here in New England. It can easily last 150- 200 years. Metal roofs are another popular option that can be economical, highly functional, and a better option than asphalt shingles. All roofs require careful and quality installation and thorough attention to critical detail areas.
