An Ancient Material, Used by Modern Architects

There are few building materials capable of truly withstanding the test of time, and slate is one of them. Slate is a rock that has been quarried out of the ground for generations. This rock was forged by forces of nature over 500 million years ago. Today it’s considered one of the premier roofing materials, exuding majesty, tradition, and character in every structure it adornes.

Whether you’re remodeling your home, working on new construction, or upgrading your roof, slate is an excellent option. But keep in mind, slate is a heavier material, which means you may require additional infrastructure to support the added weight. As Maryland’s most trusted slate roofing contractors, Brothers Services has the skills and expertise to provide a complete roof replacement while ensuring that all safeties are in place to preserve your investment.

Affordable Luxury for the Ages

It’s true; slate is a more expensive option but as a durable alternative to asphalt, it offers nearly triple the lifespan as other materials!

Slate roofing is also an attractive selling point for sellers and well-known for improving the resale value of your home. For a prospective buyer, a slate roof means little or no roofing costs or problems in the future. Plus, Brothers Services provides a warranty for your slate roof for up to 50 years, making this material a low-risk financial investment.

Slate Roofing is Natural and Magnificent

Slate stone is quarried from different locations to provide a variety of colors, textures, and qualities. Brothers Services slate roofing contractors only source the highest quality materials from trusted suppliers to ensure that your roof will continue to provide your home with protection for decades to come.

Slate is relatively maintenance-free and incredibly durable, but you should still have it inspected every few years to check for gaps or weaknesses. If problems are caught early, they are much less expensive to resolve. Look to Brothers Services as your partner in roofing installation and repairs. We don’t just provide an impeccable customer experience, we earn your trust and build Customers For Life.

My experience with Brothers Services Company was very positive. We had several other companies come in to give us an estimate of all the reps that came Brothers was the only one that went up on our roof to properly assess the problem. They took pictures and showed us exactly what needed to be done.
Ritamae W., Baltimore, MD
We were very pleased with Brothers Services work. They gave a decent estimate, showed up when they were supposed to, followed thru with speedy good work, and cleaned up when they were done. We've had quite a few compliments on our new roof and have given recommendations for admirers to contact Brothers when they're ready for their new roofs.
Carol P., Millersville, MD
We were delighted with every aspect of our roofing project. All of our questions and requests were responded to in a timely manner. It's seldom that we can highly recommend all aspects of a service provider, but this is the case of Brothers.
