Of all the roofing materials available, slate is the clear winner if you’re looking for a truly long-lasting material. Boasting a lifespan of up to 100 years with proper maintenance, slate is a high-end roofing material that provides timeless beauty and unmatched durability.
A Long-Lasting Material
Slate has the longest lifespan of any roofing material thanks to its impressive resilience against the ravages of weather, such as extreme heat, rain and snow. Slate is less brittle than tile and doesn’t require as much maintenance.
Slate roofing also has excellent impact resistance and is naturally fireproof. You simply can’t go wrong with slate if you want a long-lasting, low-maintenance roof.
Slate is a naturally dense material, which means it resists temperature fluctuations more effectively than other roofing materials. This makes it one of the more energy-efficient roofing materials available. Its density also makes it naturally waterproof. The combination of natural waterproofing and excellent durability makes slate virtually immune to fungus and mold.
Slate is available in a range of colors and styles, including shades of gray, green, purple and mottled colors. Slate roofing will give your home a distinguished look that never goes out of style.
One thing to note is that due to its heavy weight, slate roofing may be more difficult to install than other roofing materials. An experienced roofing contractor can assess your home and determine whether structural modifications are needed before a slate roof can be installed.
