Quebec City, Canada –
HKC Roofing recently attended the National Slate Associations fall conference in Quebec City, Canada. The conference included architects, historic preservationists, slate suppliers and contractors. We took part in round table discussions on improving product specifications within the industry. The SRCA (Slate Roofing Contractors Association) was present at the conference and discussed the implementation of a training program for contractors installing slate roofs. The conference included a tour of the North Country Slate – Glendyne quarry, North America’s largest slate producing quarry. North Country Slate produces an unfading black slate that’s regarded as some of the best quality slate available. It was a great experience for HKC’s Henry Mitchell and Ed Stinson to learn about slate roofing production and industry updates. Conversing with some of the industries leading professionals will no doubt benefit our roof restoration team in Cincinnati.
We look forward to applying this to our local market when inspecting, repairing and restoring historic slate roofs.
