North Shore natural slate

Smart Roofing, Inc. – Natural Slate Roof installed in Oak Brook


Smart Roofing, Inc. is pleased to share this natural slate roof being installed on a coach house in Oak Brook.  This type of roof is known as a Mansard roof.

Mansard roofs are otherwise known as French roof designs. This style of roof or curb roof includes a four-sided hip roof style with two distinct slopes. The steeper angle can be found on one side, and the window creates an extra floor of space in a home, called a garret.  The name ’mansard’ actually means the attic or space inside the roof structure rather than just the shape of the roof. Due to its design in the extremely close to nature of this attic space, a Mansard roof format is a green roof design that is very well respected for its efficiency as well its use of space management. (

This Mansard roof consists of Natural Slate by Evergreen Slate.  Slate quarried for roofing stock is of dense, sound rock and exceedingly tough and durable. A Natural Slate Roof can last a century, giving excellent long-term value.  Evergreen Slate is the largest producer and supplier of slate in the United States. Since 1916, the company has taken pride in providing its customers with high-quality products and excellent customer service, as the leader in the slate roofing industry.

Smart Roofing, Inc. will also be replacing the roof on the main house of this Oak Brook property in the Spring with this beautiful Natural Slate product.  Be sure to check back for those photos!
