Considering Slate Roofing?
Slate roofing is considered to be the most durable type of roofing material available. Most new homes are not constructed with a slate roof. Instead. slate roofing is most often found on historical homes and older homes. Slate roofing will stand up to the worst weather conditions and will remain beautiful for hundreds of years, when properly maintained. Among its other exceptional qualities, slate roofing is fireproof, invulnerable to insects, will not rot or fade and comes in a wide variety of colors.
Slate roofing will outlast the materials that comprise the roof structure, so proper roof maintenance is a must. Slate tiles aren’t designed to be walked on, so improper roof maintenance can actually damage slate roofing.
