Concrete Contractors in Salem, Oregon

Slate & Slate Construction was founded in 1992 by Bill Slate and his son, Terry Slate. The two started out by offering affordable, yet high-end roofing solutions to their customers. Over the years, the company has started offering custom concrete services, including driveways, sidewalks, patios, tearing out and replacement, concrete washing, and sealing. Slate & Slate Construction has become a well known Salem concrete contractor for their decorative concrete work, utilizing both staining and stamping techniques to create intricate concrete designs.
