The Durable Slate Company was founded in 1986 as a slate roof restoration contractor. At that time, most local roofing companies repaired slate roofs with such materials as caulk, tar, and metal. Where actual slates were used for repair, the slates often were the wrong size, color, or thickness. The more repair done on a slate roof, the uglier it became. Often, the leaks were not even handled. Due to the prevalence of poor repairs, many slate roofs were removed and replaced with non-historic.. materials. Because most newly quarried slates do not match older, weathered slates, Durable Slate began to salvage as much roofing slate as possible. With a large selection of salvaged slate, Durable Slate was able to complete major restorations maintaining the original beauty intrinsic to slate roofs. The scope of work expanded quickly from slate repair to extensive restoration and new roof installation. Interest in new slate roofs has experienced a resurgence, and Durable Slate, with its level of experience and craftsmanship, was able to provide residential and commercial customers with high quality and swift installation. In 1991, having been with the company since 1986, Michael Chan along with John Chan, and Ed De Long acquired Durable Slate from the original founder of the company. Michael, John, Ed, and Gary Howes are the principals today. A sheet metal division and a masonry division were added to provide additional services using crews trained to work on slate roofs without damaging the slate. As the salvage operation grew, a division was established to broker salvaged slate and clay tile throughout the country. In 1997, the company launched a general contracting division further expanding the range of its work. Today, Durable Slate is one of the largest installers and restorers of slate roofs in North America. The main office in Columbus, Ohio and satellite offices in Cincinnati and Cleveland service slate and clay tile roofs throughout Ohio and surrounding states. For major restorations and installations, The Durable Slate Company services the entire Eastern United States.
