CRC installs genuine quarried slate along with man-made slate and eco-friendly 100% salvageable slate. We prefer using copper fasteners and flashings on our slate roofs.

SLATE ROOFS: Genuine slate roofs are top-of-the-line roofs that offer a lifetime of durability and beauty along with a Class A fireproof rating. Slate roofs and their copper accessories are salvageable to help create a landfill-free environment. There are many types of man-made slates which are also salvageable and a lighter weight for homes that aren’t designed to hold the weight of genuine slate.
CLAY TILE ROOFS: Clay tile roofs are the second best type of roof with many of the same advantages of a slate roof. They offer a lifetime of durability and beauty, are a great sound barrier and are fire resistant.
CONCRETE TILE ROOFS: Concrete tile roofs aren’t as durable or salvageable as slate and clay tile roofs, thus they aren’t as expensive, but they offer the same beauty and fireproof rating and can be installed on homes not designed for the weight of a clay tile roofs. They are made in a variety of styles and colors.
Slate roofs, clay and concrete tile roofs are a draining type of roof system. It is very important that these roofs are installed only by an experienced slate or tile roof installer who knows how to properly flash protrusions and valleys and how to properly install the correct underlayments required for this type of draining roof system.

Today’s metal roofs come in a variety of styles and colors, are energy efficient, Class A fire rated, and recycleable. Primarily made from aluminum and steel, they are also available in solid copper and zinc alloys. CRC installs standing seam metal, copper metal, and stone-coated steel roofs.

ROOF VENTILATION: We offer all types of roof venting including solar powered or electric thermostatically-controlled attic power ventilators, gable and roof louvers, under eave vents, ridge vents, and lifetime warranted wind turbines. Without proper ventilation, serious damage can occur such as wet insulation, mildew, and rotting wood. Most residential attic ventilation requires a balanced system of 50% exhaust vents and 50% intake vents. They both must be of proper size and number per square footage of your attic. (Note: Never cover wind turbines with plastic bags during the winter. It causes condensation and wood rot in the attic)
