About Our Slate Roofing Services

Why is Slate Used For Roofing?

Slate is a popular roofing material for a number of reasons. First, it is an extremely durable material and can last for centuries with proper care. Slate is also fireproof, which is an important consideration for any roofing material. Slate roofs are relatively easy to install and repair. They are very attractive and add value to a home. Slate roofs are low maintenance and require little upkeep once they are installed.

How Long Does a Slate Roof Last?

When it comes to roofing materials, slate is often seen as the gold standard. Not only is slate incredibly durable, but it also has a long lifespan. In fact, a properly installed slate roof can last up to 100 years. While the initial cost of a slate roof may be higher than other materials, the long-term savings can be significant. When you factor in the reduced need for repairs and maintenance, a slate roof is an excellent investment. If you’re looking for a roofing material that will stand the test of time, slate is an ideal option.

How to Clean a Slate Roof

Over time, slate roofs can become stained and mossy, making them less attractive and less effective at protecting your home. The first step to cleaning is to remove any debris, such as leaves or branches, that may be trapping moisture against the slate. Once the debris is cleared away, the shingles can be washed with a mild cleaning solution. 

Slate Roofing Pros and Cons

“Pros,” slate is a gorgeous roofing material that has been used for centuries. Homeowners love the classic, clean lines that slate roofs add to their homes.

“Cons,” this type of roof is heavy – slate roofs can weigh four times more than a traditional asphalt shingle roof. The thicker the slate, the heavier your roof will be.
