Its just like every other slate there small differents in the color, also the slate could have been cut at different times in different parts of the quarry them sold to this job, just like most quarries do today.

It is a fantastic roof in Delhi, NY. I have just not seen so many diff't looking red pieces on one roof before. They usually all appear the same, having come from the same place and installed at the same time. Just wondering if it looks to anyone else like a ton of repairs have been done (part and parcel with the failing fasteners we see now.) x

Looks like a nice red roof to myself, ever been to a quarry and seen the differents in the slate vain.

I can't see the image. Maybe it's in the wrong format.

And, yes, those are painted pieces of aluminum. (The customer told me budget was an issue...)

Has anyone ever seen such varying 'shades' or degrees of fading in NY red? Or are we looking at years of diff't repairs with slate from different 'red' veins? Roof is a big, loose mess (box nails.)
