What Can Break Slate Roofing?

What Can Break Slate Roofing?
Slate

Historically, slate has been one of the most reliable roofing materials used by man. Many slate roofs are still in pretty good shape, considering how much time has passed since they were installed.


The Roofing and Remodeling Company helps you understand your slate roof better.Many people cite the material’s low water absorption index as the main reason for its longevity. Given that fact, you might wonder when exactly a slate roof would need replacing.

When Slate Needs Replacin

It’s hard to damage this great type of roofing in Virginia Beach, VA. The main reason most slate roofs need to be looked at is actually because of a failure in the components that hold them in place—namely the fasteners.

The slate shingle itself might be durable, but this all goes to waste if what’s holding it in place isn’t of high quality. There are a few warning signs to look out for. The presence of leaks in slate roofing indicate a break somewhere between the shingles. Second, when individual shingles fall out, it’s always the fasteners that need replacing.

Why Replace Rather Than Repair

For one thing, slate is unique in appearance and color. Even those of the same shade can vary slightly. When you have to deal with a vast roofing area, changing everything all at once will ensure consistency in the look. A full replacement by a reliable roofing company is also a guarantee of quality in all the components used—leading to longer-term stability.
