Joseph JenkinsJoe Jenkins (left) started working on slate roofs at the age of 16 in Butler, Pennsylvania, in 1968. His book, The Slate Roof Bible, first published in 1997 and now in its 3rd Edition, sprang from the slate roof restoration trade he had developed over the years. Joe also publishes the Traditional Roofing Magazine when he has time, and is founder and Executive Director of the Slate Roofing Contractors Association of North America, Inc.

We're located in northwestern Pennsylvania about 29 miles east of the Ohio border, three minutes off Interstate 80 at exit 29 (Barkeyville, Route 8). Take Route 8 north at exit 29 about 1/2 mile to the first left turn (Gilmore Road), turn left onto Gilmore and go about one mile to the first left turn (Old Beech Road). Turn left onto Old Beech and then go about 1/4 mile to the 3rd driveway on the right (Forest Lane). Turn right onto Forest Lane and you'll find us at the top of the hill.

We're open 9-5 M-F eastern time or by chance or appointment. Joe tends to work late and will sometimes answer the phone after 5 pm.

Although Joseph Jenkins Inc. no longer provides contracting services, you can contact either Joe's son or step-son for contracting quotes (photo below): Orion Jenkins (on right in photo) (JenkinsSlateMasters.com) and Brent Ulisky (UliskySlate.com).
