What are the benefits of having and maintaining a slate roof?

Slate is a natural and environmentally friendly product that is derived from stone and has been used in roofing for centuries.

It is a non-porous material that is extremely durable and resistant to extreme weathering and temperatures while also being fire resistant.

Because of slate’s durable nature, it is a desirable material to use when roofing, as it doesn’t require frequent repair or replacement, while being an easy material to work with and erect.

A properly erected slate roof can be said to last for upwards of fifty years while maintaining a beautiful and classic appearance that will complement the appearance of any structure it is used on.

Slate Roofing Benefits

Slate shingles are extremely durable and probably the most popular form of roofing worldwide.  Slate shingles can withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions, as slate is a non-porous material and is so durable it doesn’t require frequent replacement.  A slate shingle is essentially a stone material and features two lines of breakability called cleavage and grain.  The stone is split into thin sheets of flat slates that are easy to stack while maintaining a natural appearance.  Slate shingles are also fire resistant and energy efficient.
