Is a Slate Roof Right for You?

Slate is a natural stone that is precisely cut and split into thin layers so it can be used for roofing. It is composed of a fine-grained metamorphic rock that comes in slight variations of grey. Because it is a natural product, your choice of colors will be narrower than tile.

Slate comes from some of America’s finest quarries and has been used in roofing for centuries. One of its more appealing qualities is that no two slate tiles are alike. Its color variations will only enhance over time as the tiles weather.

Slate has practical qualities that make the cost well worth it:

  • Long-lasting. Many slate roofs have lasted a century. Many other roofing materials would need to be replaced several times over that period.
  • Its aesthetic appeal and durability only increases a home’s value.
  • Slate is a non-combustible product and acts as additional fire protection.
  • Stands up to heat, wind, ice, and rain, while other roofing materials may crack or blow off in wind weather events.

Advantages of Roof Tiles

Because tiles are fired from either concrete or clay, they can be custom-formed and produced in a wide array of designs and colors. So if your roof has a special feature, such as a skylight, clay tiles can be formed around them.

Slate and tile products are sought after for their aesthetic appeal and durability, but they will only be as optimal as the company installing them! It requires a company with tremendous experience and attention to detail.
