Combining a unique sense of charm with durability and longevity, slate is the ideal material for a characterful roofline. Slate is resistant from the elements, however if a slate tile is accidentally broken they are easily replaced.
It doesn’t degrade. It’s not susceptible to fire damage. Often slate will outlast even the property it covers.
By using such a long life material you are keeping alternative roofing materials out of land fill. Slate also has no detrimental impact on the environment and will keep your energy costs low once installation costs are covered.
