Slate roofing tile has a long and storied history, and is generally known as one of the highest quality, longest lasting roofing materials on the market.
Slate roofing tile has some huge upsides, mostly due to the fact that it’s a natural stone product, giving it a unique, beautiful appearance, and the longevity that slate is famous for. Here’s a list of the most popular reasons to choose to install slate roofing tiles.
- Appearance: There isn’t a roofing material on the market that has a classier, more celebrated appearance. Slate roofing tiles offer more choices than most realize, available in varying sizes and thicknesses, as well as a wide range of colors, including gray, green, purple, black, red, and mottled tiles that sport several colors mixed together.
- Longevity: Slate roofs can and should be routinely built to last at least a century.
- Fire Resistance: Slate roofing is one of the most fire resistant roofs that exist. Unlike many other roofing materials, the individual slate tiles are completely fire proof.
- Environmentally Friendly: It’s easy to see the positive environmental impacts of installing a roof that is going to last 100 years or more.
