Your home’s protection and curb appeal are largely dependent on your residential roofing system. That’s why it’s important to choose a roofing material that offers impeccable weather resistance and timeless beauty. This is where slate stands out.
In today’s post, Spicer Bros. Construction shares the four exceptional advantages of slate roofing:
Most roofing systems need to be replaced every 20-30 years. When you install slate, however, you’ll never have to worry about replacing your roof again. A slate roof can last up to 100 years, more than twice the longevity of any other roofing material.
The secret to slate’s long lifespan is its unparalleled ability to withstand anything Mother Nature throws at it. For one, it’s noncombustible, which means it will safeguard your home in the event of a fire. It’s also resistant to extreme temperature changes, making it ideal for climates that experience strong rains, winds, and snow. Finally, it’s extremely low-maintenance, making it an excellent choice for residential roofing.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Old roofs account for 5 of all the construction waste in the country. When you invest in slate roofing, you won’t contribute to this problem because of slate’s long service life.
4. Aesthetic Appeal
Many other roofing materials try to imitate the timeless elegance of slate, and while some products come close, none can truly capture slate’s natural beauty. Slate can complement any architectural style, especially traditional homes. It also comes in an array of thicknesses, colors, and sizes to add rich dimension to your exterior.
It takes extensive skills, knowledge, and experience to install slate roofing properly. As a premier roofing company, Spicer Bros. Construction has what it takes to deliver flawless results. We will make sure you enjoy slate’s long-term benefits.
