Slate is a beautiful, durable material commonly found on historic roofs. While slate tiles possess a long life span, they may become loose, cracked or missing as the roof ages and endures various weather events.

Cornett Roofing Systems has extensive experience working with slate tiles, so our specialists provide expert care as they restore and repair your slate roof. We also have one of the country’s largest collections of old and rare slate, enabling us to match your existing roof with genuine products.

Clay tiles offer long-lasting performance since they resist fading, drying and fire. Tiles are still susceptible to cracking and wear as they age, so if your historical building has a French or Spanish tile roof, you will need professional restoration or repair services to ensure your building and roof are safe.

We are highly experienced in installing, restoring and repairing clay tile roofing systems. Our large tile roofing inventory helps us match your historic building’s existing roof.

Wood cedar shake roofing

Wood shakes are a common material used in historic buildings. They offer exceptional strength and insulation but have a shorter life span than other historical roofing materials, such as slate or clay, so they require experienced maintenance.

Cornett Roofing Systems has repaired and installed wood shake roofing systems for decades, so you can trust our expert team to properly restore your historic roof. We have access to premium wood shakes to help increase your roof’s durability and strength.

Copper standing seam roof

Copper roofs are common on historical buildings due to their durable, fire-resistant, corrosion-resistant and aesthetically pleasing properties. Copper requires specialized care to ensure its optimal performance.

Cornett Roofing Systems has a team of experienced copper roofing specialists who can expertly care for your historical building’s copper roof. We can restore entire copper roofing systems as well as roofing components.
