Why Install a Slate Roof?

Why Install a Slate Roof?

When planning a roof replacement, it’s important not to get too preoccupied with project costs. Focus instead on maximizing the returns on investment (ROIs). If you’re planning a roofing replacement, slate roofing has one of the best ROIs among roofing materials.

Exceptional Durability 

Thanks to its exceptional durability, a slate roofing system can last at least 75 to 100 years. With proper care and maintenance, they can even outlast the building on which they are installed. 

Eco-Friendliness 

Slate roofing is a great choice if you’re trying to reduce your home’s carbon footprint. Since a slate roof can outlast the building it’s attached to, it can help reduce the amount of construction debris that ends up in landfills. 

Minimal Maintenance Needs

Compared to other roofing materials, slate roofing (which is resistant to mold and other common roofing issues) has fewer maintenance needs. Keep in mind that low maintenance doesn’t mean no maintenance. As a general rule, you should have your roof inspected by a roofing contractor at least twice a year. 

Aesthetic Appeal 

A slate roof can boost your home’s curb appeal and by extension its property value. That’s because natural stone materials like slate can add a sophisticated elegance to any exterior. Not to mention slate roofing comes in a wide variety of patterns. 

Important note: to protect your ROIs, make sure to vet a contractor before hiring one. Since slate roofing is heavier than other roofing materials, installing them requires a certain level of expertise.
