George Parsons has been a leading contractor for slate and tile roofing in Long Island for many years. We have a group of master craftsmen with unparalleled experience and skills in the lost art of slate roofing. Our specialists are also well-versed in tile roofing, leading skilled crews that work on this roofing type for years.

Slate roofing is a lost art. You might find a company claiming to be expert in the craft, but you cannot really rely on such claims. With George Parsons Roofing, you can expect work from a professional installer who has mastered the craft of slate roofing.

Our experience in slate roofing dates back to the beginning of George Parsons in 1972. Featuring exceptional quality and aesthetics, our slate roofs give a new definition to roof architecture. Our roofs can also last for more than 100 years when properly installed and flashed.

To make sure that your roof stays durable and resilient, we install copper flashings around the edges and fittings. Improper or poor installation can affect the value and durability of even the most beautiful slate and tile roof so we place great attention to every project that we handle.

Whether it’s a piece of slate, an entire new slate roof, or a leak coming from the roof, we are more than ready to help you out. We believe that implementing a repair and maintenance program will help extend the life of a slate roof, regardless of its condition.

Once we have a roof repair schedule, we aim to finish the project on time and on budget. We handle roofing projects of all sizes and types. If your home needs slate roofing installation, or your commercial property needs tile roofing, leak detection, or copper flashing, and snow guards, we are the company to call.
