Types of Specialties

Asphalt Shingles

Roof shingles consist of overlapping elements laid in courses starting at the bottom edge of the roof and working upwards. Shingles are made from a variety of materials including wood, slate, asphalt, and metal.


We have extensive experience in installing all types of cedar roofing and generally have at least one crew installing cedar every work day of the year. Gillespie Contracting Inc is certified by The Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau, meaning we can offer their limited, transferable, lifetime warranty.


At Gillespie Contracting Inc. we have a wealth of experience with a variety of commercial roofing projects. Our installers have been honing their craft for decades, and have worked on some of the most complicated installs ever seen, including turrets, rounded valleys, and custom blends. Each roof requires precise layout & design for each project.

Metal and Gutter

As part of our roofing projects, we also handle a range of gutter and metal fabrication. We use a variety of metals and vinyl in these projects. We can provide K-style, half round or custom gutters to suit your roof and our team can create a range of finials and other custom metal fabrication for that finishing touch.


At Gillespie Construction Inc. we have years of experience in working with slate. We can source a wide variety of natural slate options in a wide array of colors to create the look you want.
