If you are looking for a “lifetime” roofing system that can provide superior durability and add a distinctive touch of timeless beauty to your home, then consider investing in a natural slate roof.
For centuries, slate has been highly acclaimed for its natural beauty and remarkable longevity, unmatched by other materials. Investing in a slate roofing system is a major financial commitment. Therefore, it is critical to learn about advantages and drawbacks of slate before you make a buying decision.
One of the most attractive features of slate is its natural beauty, followed by its truly uncontested durability and longevity. Slate will enhance the look of any architectural style, and is available in a variety of natural slate colors and textures.
Slate’s color options include green, gray, black, purple, red as well as tiles that sport a mixture of colors. Moreover, slate shingles are shaped by hand to meet specific requirements and can be custom made in a variety of thicknesses and sizes. Regardless of its age, slate will maintain its distinctive appearance.
When it comes to longevity few roofing materials can compete with slate. A slate roof will easily last over 100 years, which is at least double of what other roofing materials can offer.
Many slate tile manufacturers offer up to 100 year warranty on their products. For people who do not plan to ever sell their home, the incredible longevity of slate is a highly desirable benefit.
Being a natural stone, slate is more durable than any man-made material. High density of slate makes it waterproof, meaning that it will not absorb water. Slate is completely non-combustible and will protect your home in the event of a fire.
Slate is also highly resistant to any temperature fluctuations and inclement weather conditions, making it ideal in areas prone to heavy rain, snow, and wind.
Moreover, a slate roof will not be affected by fungus and mold. These properties make a slate roof practically maintenance free, allowing you to have the peace of mind, without having to spend extra cash on expensive maintenance and repairs.
The key to slate’s longevity is proper installation. If a slate roof is not properly installed, it could easily become the cause of some major roof problems. Slate is a very specialized roofing system and installing it correctly does require some proper training and experience.
The reality is that most roofers do not have this experience, yet many will readily agree to install your slate roof anyway! Do not fall into this trap, and only hire an experienced contractor who specializes in slate roofing.
