A slate roof has many benefits that contribute to why it is a great choice for homeowners. The first of such benefits is that a slate roof looks stunning– the amount of curb appeal that is gained on a home from having a slate roof is unlike any other roofing material. Many agree that a slate roof is the most visually pleasing roofing system available.
Not only do they look amazing, but slate roofing systems are also incredibly durable. In fact, a slate roof has the longest lifespan of any roofing system, and slate is also extremely resistant to harsh weather conditions. However, constant exposure to harsh weather may impact the lifespan of your slate roof. To avoid any possible integrity issues with a slate roof, it’s very important to only work with a reputable roofing contractor who has extensive knowledge and experience in installing slate roofs. This is because slate is made from natural slate tiles along with other slate materials, and it is prone to breaking. You should only trust an experienced roofing contractor to install a slate roof on your home to ensure it is properly flashed in order to get the most out of your new roof. Additionally, since slate roofs are made from natural materials, they are not covered under the same warranty other roofing systems are, which adds to the fact that it’s incredibly important to work with a contractor who knows what they’re doing. Instead, slate roofing systems are only covered by your roofing contractor’s workmanship warranty.
With that being said, if you decide to get a slate roof on your home, then expect it to be the last roof you’ll ever need to worry about (at least as long as you live there). When properly flashed and installed by professional roofing contractors, a slate roof will last you 75-100 years or more. However, you should keep in mind that slate tiles can break from people walking on them. This includes anybody that may need to access your roof for any reason, such as someone fixing your cable antenna. When done with care, walking on a slate roof isn’t an issue for breaking, but it’s something to keep in mind before getting on top of a slate roof with no experience working with the material.
Slate is the heaviest and longest lasting roofing material available with a lifespan of 75-100 years or more, and that longevity comes with a cost. In general, a slate roof will cost more than most other residential roofing materials, but what you gain is the peace of mind knowing you won’t have to worry about another replacement in the lifetime of your home.
