Your roof is a large part of your home’s appeal. That’s why many homeowners desire slate roofing. Slate can make your home look sophisticated and distinctive. It has been used for hundreds of years, providing homes with a timeless and classic appearance. Slate is also an environmentally-friendly roofing material.
A slate roof's longevity is legendary. There are slate roofs installed hundreds of years ago that are still in use today! In fact, given proper care and maintenance, a slate roof can outlast the building structure. This roofing option helps with environmental sustainability as well. Slate keeps other roofing materials with shorter life spans out of landfills, because once you purchase a slate roof it will be with you for life.
In addition, slate can also be recycled once it has outlasted the building. Compare this with other roofing materials that are continuously manufactured and discarded, and you will see why slate roofing is a good investment.
Slate is resistant to degradation, no matter the climactic conditions. Moreover, it is impact-resistant. This durability means it can withstand harsh weather conditions without wear and tear. It reduces the need for resource-intensive roof replacement, saving you money and helping the environment.
In fact, over 95% of the slate roofs we have inspected over the years simply needed repair. A simple yearly inspection is all that’s needed to make sure the material lasts. Slate will make your home look great, last longer than a lifetime and protect the environment. If you want the first-class experience of owning a slate roof, then you have come to the right place.
