Types of Slate Roofs We Install
Natural slate is one of the most highly coveted roofing options available because of its sleek appearance and long-lasting durability. Slate is a natural product and can be expected to last 80 to 100 years when properly installed and maintained. One major factor to keep in mind is that slate is a heavy material. If you would like to consider installing a slate roof, we will have to make sure that your home is structurally capable first!
If you want the curb appeal of slate without having to worry about its weight, synthetic slate is also an option. Although it is not as durable as its natural counterpart, synthetic slate still boasts a lifespan of about 60 years, and the material itself will cost half as much. You will also get to enjoy all the usual benefits of a slate roof, including Class A fire ratings and Class 4 impact resistance—all the highest levels of durability ratings.
