Century Slate specializes in historically sensitive disciplines of the roofing trade and has completed projects for a base of clients that demand and rely on the preservation of the historic fabric of their buildings. Nearly 100% of the roofs constructed and cared for by Century Slate are comprised of slate, copper, clay tile, zinc, terne metal, and/or wood shingle/shake.
We work exclusively with the materials listed above in historic application.
Although not every project we work on includes historic preservation, we regularly participate in projects that require attention to historic value.
The Century Slate Company has been trusted by various owners, architects, and engineers to tend to the roofing needs of such buildings as the North Carolina Capitol Building (Raleigh, NC), Biltmore Estate (Asheville, NC) the Mordecai House (birthplace of Andrew Johnson, Raleigh, NC), Cedarhyrst (Old Salem, Winston-Salem, NC), Orton Plantation (Winnabow, NC), McRae House (Wilmington, NC) and numerous other buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Additionally, many in and out of state (Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia and Louisiana) historic properties, churches and universities have invited us to work on their oldest and most treasured buildings.
