Protection From Mother Nature
Year-round weather can take a toll on many roofing materials. Heavy snowfall, sudden hail and blazing heat all wear away these exposed materials. Slate is a durable stone product that has very low water absorption ratings. This means that the typical freeze/thaw cycle of Midwest winters won’t cause expansion and breakage in slate like it does in asphalt or other materials.
Professionally installed slate roofing is also UV- and fire-resistant. These features make it a worthwhile alternative to asphalt shingles or cedar shake. You never have to worry about a fire being started on this rock surface, and the sturdy components won’t fade, chip, or crack like cedar or asphalt.
When clay or volcanic ash undergo a low-grade regional metamorphism, the result is slate. This homogeneous rock comes from a shale-type sedimentary rock that is naturally formed in the earth. Different quarries produce different colors, and manufacturing processes allow you to select from a diverse range of textures and dimensions.
Metal, cedar and asphalt are common roofing materials, but slate gives you an opportunity to truly stand out. The natural tones blend in perfectly with many siding colors and landscaping, so you don’t need to completely redesign your home to enjoy this quality material.
Slate roof tiles are built to last. In many cases, you can enjoy between 75 and 100 years of lifetime before you notice any damage. This is why many homeowners refer to it as a forever roof. Even if a few shingles are damaged, this product is easy for a licensed contractor with experience in slate roofs to repair.
Create a home that stands out. Whether nestled into a wooded glade or resting proudly along a street lined with other beautiful homes, your house deserves a beautiful, unique look. Slate is a natural stone product, which means that it comes in a wide range of color options.
