New Construction

R W Stokes offers consulting options for homeowners, architects, engineers and contractors drawing from its thirty years of experience in natural and man-made specialty roof construction, design and installation. We have available our own list of vetted commercial and residential professionals experienced in all aspects of specialty roofing, and are one of the select few Charter Members of Slate Roofing Contractors Association of North America.

Construction and Roofing Services

Strong and thorough project planning and system design are critical for any tile or slate roofing project. Accordingly, we offer experienced assistance in the design and installation of various roof systems for both commercial and residential customers, including aspects such as material selection, ice and water barriers, synthetic felts, the drip edge, rake, valley, step and counter flashings, ventilation, and unique fasteners and sealants.

We can represent the Owner in the initial plans and specifications with architects and engineers, and, during construction, by monitoring the progress and the quality of the work being performed to ensure compliance with approved plans and specifications. When appropriate, we can participate in the design details and provide third-party reviews of the architectural plans and specifications.

Post-Construction Services

We can assist in all aspects of handling your insurance claim, including the specification of products and the recommendations that are best for you and your home or building. Specifications can include your roof selection itself. When necessary, we can assist counsel in litigation, and can provide expert testimony.
