If you’re planning to get roof replacement soon, then you know that there are several roofing options to choose from apart from asphalt shingles and tiles. Slate stands out as one of the highest quality and long-lasting roofing options available. Integrity Roofing and Siding discusses why you should make the switch to slate.
Slate is a Long-Lasting Material
The biggest benefit of using slate roofing is its superior elemental resilience when you compare it to other roofing materials. It surpasses asphalt shingles and even metal roofing. Slate roofing is also completely fireproof – a feature most roofing options can’t boast.
Slate is also one of the most long-lasting roofing materials, rivaling even tile roofing for its longevity. Slate roofing can last as long as a century and has an “average” operating life span of 150 years. Unlike tile, slate isn’t brittle, and it would take you roughly 20 or 30 years before you would even think about replacing it.
Slate: Aesthetics That Last a Long Time
Slate attracts a lot of homeowners due to its beauty as a roofing material. It’s one of those “classier” roofing options since it can come in a range of shapes, sizes and colors. It’s not uncommon to spot a slate roof that boasts a mottled appearance or incorporating several colors mixed together.
The best part about slate roofing is that its aesthetic aspect will last almost as long as its operating life span. The sheer durability of the material combined with superior elemental resilience means that the color of your roofing won’t fade as easily as most other roofing materials.
As a roofing contractor, we enjoy installing slate roofing since the material is very easy on the environment. Only around 5% of roofing waste is attributed to slate roofing since the material itself has a longer operating life span than others.
