Slate Roof Installation

Believe it or not, slate roofs are just as durable as metal roofs—even more so! Better yet, slate roofs don’t require a lot of maintenance. Many professional roofers will tell you that slate is one of the best materials for outdoor use (this is why slate patios are so common).

Slate roofing is ideal for a number of different reasons. Slate roofs are:

  • Extremely durable
  • Resistant to fire, rotting, mold and mildew, and insect damage
  • Virtually maintenance-free
  • Available in a wide range of colors
  • Not easily damaged by water (their waterproofing characteristics make them beneficial in areas where it rains and snows frequently)
  • Easy to repair compared to other roofing materials

If low maintenance and high durability are your top priorities when it comes to roofing, you can’t go wrong with slate!

Slate Roof Repair & Replacement

It’s true that slate roofs can last for many years, but repairs are inevitable—nothing lasts forever, not even your roofing. If your roof needs to be repaired, it’s a good idea to hire professionals even if you’re handy with tools. We’ve seen many cases where the homeowners have tried to fix the problem themselves and accidentally caused more damage.

While usually less expensive, a repair is not always the best option. There may come a time when you need a full replacement, and even though it may cost more upfront, it will help you avoid inconvenient repairs later on down the road. If approximately one-third of the slates on your roof need to be replaced, it may be financially wiser to get a whole roof replacement.
