The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing

When making your decision about the type of roofing you prefer, there will be pros and cons. Here is what you can expect when considering slate roofing for your home.

Pros of Slate Roofing

  • Beautiful: Homeowners love slate roofs because they are stunning and beautiful. They give your home a clean and sleek look while still being available in a variety of colors and widths.
  • Durable: Whether natural or synthetic, slate roofs are durable and can withstand high winds and high temperatures for up to 75 years.
  • Low-maintenance: Slate roofs are easy to maintain because they are so durable. Their strength means you won’t have to worry about replacing damaged shingles as often as asphalt shingles.

Cons of Slate Roofing

  • Cost: You might balk at the price of slate roofing, especially when comparing it to asphalt shingles. But many homeowners are willing to pay more for a roof that looks beautiful, is more durable, and lasts longer!
  • Weight: Natural slate is very heavy, meaning it takes a lot of skill to properly install it.

What is the difference between natural and synthetic slate?

    We’ve hired Alamo Construction for several jobs that included renovating the lower level of our home, gutting and updating two bathrooms and a new roof. The quality of their work and materials used is the best and their prices very reasonable. … More I wasn’t sure on some of the design and materials and they really helped us by giving us the pros and cons of different options.
