The Benefits of a Slate Roof
Aesthetics: Above all else, slate is an attractive option to consider. There is just no other roofing material that offers the same look and texture that slate contributes. Slate delivers options in size, color, and thickness so each roof comprised of the material is unique in its own way. There is a reason that slate roofing has been utilized for hundreds of years; it allots a beauty all its own.
Life Span: Aside from metal roofing systems, slate is the longest lasting roofing material on the market, suggesting over 50 years of longevity. This is a huge upgrade from the 10-20 years the average asphalt roofing system provides. Although slate roofing is more expensive than other materials, the option ends up paying for itself over the years by reducing maintenance and reconstruction roofing fees.
Fire, Wind, and Rain Protection: Slate tiling is one of those most fire resistant roofing options that you have the option of investing in. This obviously adds to the security of any home that is roofed with slate. Many other roofing materials may not stop fire, but slate Clay tiles are unaffected. Along with fire protection, slate can withstand high force winds and rains without damage.
