Slate is by far the most durable and one of the most attractive roofing materials available on the market today.
Slate roofing tiles are precisely cut from slabs of stone and are most commonly grey but are often available in a variety of colors.
One of the most important aspects of your new slate roof, is it’s average longevity of over 100 years and in thought history have lasted twice as long!
Slate roofing tiles are incredibly low maintenance, fire proof and have a great immunity to the effects of mold/mold spores. Slate is one of the heavier roofing materials available for your home, you must have your roof estimated by an experience slate roofing contractor that can properly assess if your home can support the excess weight.
If your current structure is not suitable to bear the weight of the slate roofing tiles, our roofing specialists will help provide solutions and alternatives for the roof you desire. One solution may be to increase the structural strength of your home’s roofing support, via the installation of additional materials.
Simulated slate roofing tiles (or synthetic roofing tiles), are a lightweight and cost effective alternative to natural slate roofing tiles.
This material is a man-made mixture of slate dust and glass fiber resin (sometimes a cement and fiber mixture), created to be lighter, less expensive and more durable during installation (making installation much easier).
