Slate roofing has been used on buildings for more than a thousand years. This practice was brought to the New World by European settlers. Nothing else quite matched the durability, aesthetics, and fireproof qualities that were available with slate and this same quality remains today.
Soffit and fascia both play a crucial role in the look and function of your home. The soffit is used to cover the under-hang of your roof and gables, and can protect from animal intrusion as well as providing intake ventilation for your attic. Aluminum Fascia is used as a cladding (to cover bare wood) which seals the ends of your eaves and provides a surface for the installation of the eavestrough.
