Looks like VT sea green, as John said, but the photos are lacking in detail.

Stella, I think John is right on with this one. I believe that Joe has a copper ridge roll in his web store, or as John said, they can be fabricated in any good sheet metal shop.

A few close-up shots of the roof would be helpful. Zoom in a bit. I know it is random, but I am having trouble seeing the slight tan patches and slates that would prove it is semi-weathering gray green.

It looks to me like a random width Vermont Semi-Weathering Gray Green. It has a little bit of texture to it, maybe 1/4"-3/8". That's my guess from the pictures.

The cap can be shop fabricated.

I would really appreciate it if someone could identify the slates used on the building shown in the linked photograph. I am building a new structure adjacent to it and need to match the existing slates.

Also, I have been unable to find a matching copper ridge cap. The cap on this building has a profile that I've had no luck in locating.

Any help or information is much appreciated.
