Slate Roofing Systems

What is more beautiful or aesthetically pleasing than a natural slate roof? A slate roof is one of the most durable roofing materials available. When properly installed, and maintained, a slate roof will last for hundred’s of years. The specific life of a slate roof is dependent upon a lot of variables and it is wise to discuss your requirements with a professional installer.

Life Variables:
     - type and origin of the slate
     - roof style
     - climate

Another consideration is the weight of slate tile. Many roofs are not structurally designed to handle the load represented by a slate tile installation. Before committing to the installation of a slate roof, ensure that your rafters and/or trusses have been designed and installed to handle the additional weight.

Considered to be the most stylish and sophisticated roofing materials, slate comes in a wide range of colors, textures and quality levels. Because a slate roof installation requires skilled, professional and experienced roofers, slate is not an inexpensive roof covering. In addition, because of the products weight special handling equipment is required and freight charges will add to the cost.

Because of the high investment made in installing a slate roof, they should be inspected yearly and after major storms.
