Are you planning to switch to a slate roof? We’ve got everything you need to know about slate roofs to help you understand the benefits they can add to your home.
BSR, your local roof repair and replacement specialist, discusses more.
Versatile Material Choices
You can choose from three types of slate tiles used for your new roofing system: bitumen slate, fiber cement slate and natural slate. Bitumen slate is composed of ground-down slate and synthetic resin, making it a cost-efficient slate material. Fiber cement slate is made of cement, fibers and mineral additives to suit various roof structures. It also weighs less than the usual slate roof material. Natural slate is the most common material used in new roof construction because of its classic and lovely finish. It’s widely used in historic buildings and century-old restored homes.
An Exterior Like No Other
A slate roof promises to be a unique home feature. With our expert craftsmanship and exterior services, we guarantee to match the beauty of your home with enhanced durability against sudden tile cracking.
Although pricier than other types of roofing systems, rest assured you’ve got a great investment over your head. Every slate tile resists water and is non-combustible and highly reliable against fluctuating weather conditions. These features make a slate roof’s service life unusually long, easily lasting up to 100 years. Its long-term use and functionality are bound to save you a fortune in the long haul.
