Roofs continue to protect our homes from all kinds of weather conditions, and it’s important that they stand the test of time. A roof’s life span depends on the material it’s made from. One of the longest-lasting roof materials is slate.
Slate is a type of metamorphic rock used in roof tiles or shingles for stronger roofing. It can come in different colors, depending on where the home is located. For example, slate roofing from Buckingham County is available in blue, gray, or black. Vermont slate comes in a variety of shades with the most favored being semi-weathering gray/green, unfading green or unfading gray/green, and purple.
Slate roofing in Norfolk VA should include the slate stone itself, wooden boards, and metal fasteners (nails). With proper installation, you won’t have to worry about additional repairs. Like other roof types, it is a good idea to schedule regular maintenance with professional contractors. For our customers, The Roofing Company conducts a free annual inspection to take care of that for you.
A slate roof will go the extra mile to provide protection for you and your home. Not only will it add to your home’s curb appeal—it will also save you on maintenance and repair expenses down the road because of its low-maintenance qualities.
