After graduating high school in 1977, Vince Graye found his passion in slate and tile while working for a St. Louis roofing company. Nearly 10 years later, he opened his own slate and tile roofing business with a focus on preserving the architectural beauty of the city’s historic homes and buildings. With a small team of skilled craftsman, Vince Graye Slate and Tile Roofing has since repaired and restored hundreds of St. Louis area residences from Lafayette Square to St. Charles and restored pristine century-old churches and popular tourist attractions. In 2016, Vince transferred ownership of the business to Mike Walter, a slate and tile roofing veteran who brings a wealth of knowledge about the industry. Vince continues to offer his expertise as Vice President of the company.
