Slate Roof Resource For Architects

Specifying slate roofs should not be a difficult task and the NSA makes it easy with our slate specification template. It provides clear instructions on the intent, performance, and construction of the project. You will learn about the type of slate, what nails to use, underlayment material, tools required, installation and removal techniques. All these details are critical when specifying a slate roof and it’s helpful to get advice from the NSA to feel comfortable that you won’t miss any element. More so, we offer architects a network of contractors and homeowners that require assistance or opportunities with others working in slate roofs!

Benefits of joining the National Slate Association:
  • Slate specification sheet at your fingertips
  • Expert advice from the NSA board to guide through the tough questions
  • Use the NSA manual for comprehensive outlines of all slate related material
