Slate Roofer Albany, NY area

lekpeter's picture


I need a slate roof installer for a new home I'm building in the Albany, NY area.

Slate will be either 12 or 14 inches tall, random widths.

Roof is 22 square, 10/12 pitch, two valleys, six skylights, pretty straight forward.

Roof structure should be ready first part of November.

good luck with your ad. I used to roof in Albany. Grew up in Hudson. Where you at?

I'm in Delmar, 6.5 miles southwest of Albany.  I have found a local fellow, Tim Smith, who is going to slate the roof.  Ever heard of him?

In what part of the country are you hanging your hat?

Never heard of him. The only roofer I know up there is the one we used to Sub from and I couldnt remember his name for the life of me. Im down in Virginia Beach now. Been here for 2 years. Left Hudson in 88 after high school, went to Kingtson, New Paltz and Newburgh til two years ago, when I came down here. Got my own GC thing here now and things are rockin. I was up in your neck of the woods last year at the horse track. Things are a little warmer down here for me....couldnt deal with those NY winters anymore.
