This beautiful stone cottage was in need of a new roof. DACA had the pleasure to install imported Spanish slate. We added our personal touch with some red slate and accenting designs, while restoring the historic home’s original charm and grace. The homeowners have perfectly complimented this adorable cottage with landscaping that is inviting and pleasing to the eye.
It was a pleasure to work with the homeowners who are the builders of the first Deltec home in the area. This eco-friendly home of the future is completely circular and built green with sustainable, energy efficient materials. The recycled aluminum shingle-style roof system is designed specifically for the Deltec home package and boasts a cool-roof coating to keep temperatures and costs low. The sky-bubbles are a great way to let in natural light with minimal upfront costs and maximum long term benefits.
This home was a new construct. While you may commonly see art designs in slate on a vertical wall in Germany, it is very rare indeed to see it set into the roof as you see here. One of the most challenging aspects of working with natural stone slate is shaping it to the will of the Artisan. In this application, weaving it into a roof while maintaining watertight integrity with two matching designs was the culmination of many years of expertise. The homeowners even did justice to their detached garage with a matching slate roof and a copper roof over the entry door.
