Slate Roofing Contractors and Roofer Services
Slate roofing is becoming more well known in the roofing industry, and has a lot to offer. Slate is known for its durability, making it a great option for any roofing project. Because slate is a natural stone, it comes in multiple different colors including grey, green, purple, black, red, and often times a blend of those colors. The array of colors allows you a variety of options to choose from when having your roof replaced with slate so that you can customize your home to match your style and preferences.
Slate roofs are known for their lasting durability. Depending on what grade of slate you choose your new roof can last for 45 years and longer! Different slate grades include S-1 slate, which has a life expectancy of 75 years or longer, S-2 slate, which can last 45 to 75 years, and S-3 slate, which will last up to 45 years. While there is a set time frame with each grade, most slate roofs will outlast this said time frame, giving you long lasting quality for your new roof.
The installation of a slate roof tends to differ slightly from other roofing materials. During installation, slate shingles traditionally get get nailed to your roof. Since slate cannot bend, most slate roofs have different flashing that covers any bare corners and odd angles. As slate roofing grows in popularity, there are said to be different ways to install the slate, such as on a track as opposed to using nails. When you call ASR Construction be sure to ask about our installation process!
