Slate Roofing by Storm Master
Benefits of Slate
When you want a roof that will provide ultimate durability and curb appeal for your home, then you may want to consider investing in a slate roof. Slate has long been admired for its natural beauty and remarkable longevity, unrivaled by other roofing types.
Slate’s natural beauty is unparalleled. Slate is available in a variety of natural slate colors and textures, and improves the appearance of any architectural style. You can choose black, red, green, grey, purple or a multicolored approach. An additional feature of these gorgeous tiles is that the shingles are shaped by hand, and therefore can be custom-made to fit your specific wants and needs.
Slate takes the cake when it comes to longevity. A slate roof can easily last for well over 100 years, making it the most durable roofing type available. Not only is this a great feature for homeowners who never intend to sell their home, but it also will increase resale value for homeowners who do.
When you install a slate roof, you can rest assured that you will need far less maintenance than with traditional roofs. Since slate is a natural stone, it far surpasses the durability of any manmade shingles. Slate is waterproof, non-combustible (meaning it will protect your home in case of a fire) and highly resistant to fluctuations in outdoor temperature. Because of this, a slate roof is practically maintenance-free, which will save you a great deal of money on roofing repairs over the long run.
Better for the Environment
Because slate is a natural material, very little pollution goes into the manufacturing of slate shingles. It’s longevity also makes it an environmentally-friendly choice since it doesn’t require replacement every 15 to 20 years. Traditional asphalt roof shingles account for a vast amount of construction waste, so by choosing slate, you’re avoiding this threat to our planet.
