Slate has endured as one of the most desired products for architectural and custom design work. Its uniqueness as a building material lies in its inherent capacity for shearing into flat sheets of nearly any size. This quality presented slate as one of the most desirable materials for roofing, and its durability and texture lend elegance certain to last long beyond an edifice’s original luster. Today, slate is still in high demand, especially in the U.S., where discriminating buyers and designers specify it for commercial and residential alike.

Many of these buyers seek Pennsylvania slate for its beauty and resilience, and PBBS is the leading supplier of Pennsylvania slate to customers across the nation.
