RoofersCoffeeShop® sat down with Tile Identifier and Sales Manager Garrett Littleton from All Points Tile and Slate for a conversation on how their identification and color matching services help roofers deliver the impossible — speedy tile replacements for discontinued tiles that match the rest of the roof.
“We specialize in acquiring old discontinued tiles, roof tiles, concrete, clay, slate, and sourcing the material, providing free tile IDs for industry professionals, whether it's commercial or residential, to help prepare homeowners roofs. We'll do the free tile ID, we do the delivery, we'll do the custom color matching in the event that we don't have exactly what that person needs," says Garrett. “And we make sure that we take all the headaches away from sourcing material. The labor's hard enough so we just want to make it easy to get the old stuff for everybody.”
That means that when you have a customer who needs to replace 12 tiles that aren’t manufactured anymore, you have a resource that will help you find or create an identical tile. Garrett says that all you have to do is send All Points Tile and Slate a picture of the front and back of the tile with a few measurements and they can help you get a quote to your customer fast.
“We really think about what would happen if we were that homeowner and we have a hole up on our roof. I don't want to be on the hook for a couple weeks, I want that answer fast. And that's exactly what we aim to do,” says Garrett. “What would we want done? And we want speed. We want people to get that repair. So we're trying to give that knowledge out to the roofers.”
All Points Tile and Slate came to be when the owner discovered a hole in the market when he needed to source material for his roof. “He was adjacent to the industry and he thought to himself, ‘Okay, I know the material, I know how important the material is. Why don't I do it?’ And then ever since then, it's just been an evolution of learning more,” says Garrett. That is why so much of their business is built around making everyone’s life easier — from contractor to homeowner.
