Biltmore Estate

How do you get that original look again?

Ask H.L. Forbes! H.L. Forbes developed the restoration technique for the Biltmore Estate, then spent two years working to restore the mansion’s original beauty without disturbing the integrity and history of the estate.

It seems everyone is focused on the fast and furious, quick and easy way of doing things to the point that almost no one knows how to restore those old slate, tile, copper and metal shingle roof systems. Hundreds of beautiful old slate and tile roofs have been trashed in exchange for new cheaper artificial shingles when all they needed was a little flashing replacement with some miscellaneous slates or tiles. We have the expertise and experience of over 30 years in historic roof and gutter restoration to train personnel, source materials, oversee and quality control your project.
