WHAT IS SLATE ROOFING?
Slate roofing is known as one of the highest quality, longest-lasting, roofing materials on the market. Along with being aesthetically pleasing, it is also very durable. Slate roofing tiles are cut from a metamorphic rock which is highly durable, making it a perfect roofing material to be split in one direction into sheets of various thicknesses. It is cut and trimmed mostly by hand labor into the required sizes and thicknesses. A slate roof is really a custom-made job and gives a character to a building unlike that of any other type of roofing.
Slate roofing is a beautiful asset that will undoubtedly add value to any home. Due to its durability the chance of any repairs or issues arising is slim.
Slate roofs are one of the most naturally fire-resistant roofs in existence. This is a major benefit anytime there is a risk of airborne sparks from fireworks, wildfires, or from nearby house fires.
Slate roofing can easy last between 80 and 100 years if properly installed and inspected over its lifetime.
From an environmental standpoint, slate is 100% eco-friendly; it is a natural product of the Earth and is completely safe to put back in the ground.
