About Slate Roofing Tiles
Have you ever walked on your slate walkway or driveway and thought about how magnificent this would look as roof tile? Among the oldest type of tiles, slate roofing tiles also happen to be the longest-lasting tiles on the market today. The longevity of slate has been known to be as long as 100 years. Because of the unique and varied shape, color, and texture of each tile, slate roofs create a natural, organic look that’s very eye-catching.
Since slate is waterproof, it is an extremely suitable material for roofing. Natural slate requires minimal processing, and it is used virtually everywhere that it is available by building contractors because of its durability.
Another advantage is the energy saving cost. Slate is very energy-efficient, saving you money for many years to come. In addition to that, Slate, like cement, is fire resistant providing extra peace of mind.
While the materials used for slate roof tiles are very durable and extremely tolerant to high winds, there are maintenance tips that are advised. Our roofing experts recommend that homeowners with slate tile roofs have their roof power-washed by a slate roofing professional at least once a year. This is to ensure no mold or insects are removed if present.
