I am in Connecticut and just purchased a home with a slate roof. After finding contractors more than willing to quote me high prices to do the repairs, and even after agreeing to hire one I could not get him to show up and do the repairs to replace/repair the slate. I am trying to find a vendor for purchasing slate, and also copper flashing, ridge caps, and gutter materials and I am going to tackle the job myself. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

Sources of both new and used slates are listed on this site (go to home page and look at the drop down lists). Copper gutters and other materials should be available from any local roofing supplier. The Slate Roof Bible also lists sources of these materials, both in the quick reference section in the front and in the supplemental industry resource section in the back.
