WHY CHOOSE SLATE AS A ROOFING MATERIAL?
Slate is a fine-grained crystalline rock metamorphosed from bedded deposits of clay, silt and different minerals. Its unique composition gives it several unusual characteristics as well as a wide range of variation in color and texture — features which make it an excellent choice for roofing applications.
Slate quarried for roofing stock is very dense and exceedingly durable. It can last for a century or longer due to its high strength, low porosity and low absorption rate. Compared to alternatives such as asphalt and wood, slate shingles are known as one of the highest-quality, longest-lasting roofing materials available. The many different colors, sizes and textures of slate afford many architectural effects, contributing to the appearance and beauty of any building.
NOTABLE FEATURES AND BENEFITS of slate roofing
There are several reasons why slate has remained a popular roofing material compared to cheaper alternatives. Slate offers:
- Good looks: People are drawn to slate because of its highly distinctive appearance. Its subtle variances can't be replicated by a synthetic product. At the same time, slate roof shingles will blend in well with both contemporary and historical homes — check out our online gallery to see examples and get inspired for your project.
- Choice: Think all slate roofs look the same? Think again. Huber & Associates sells custom slate roofing tiles in varying sizes, thicknesses and colors. We can help you assess your design goals and recommend a product that brings your creative vision to life.
- Longevity: Slate roofs can last for 100 years or more if properly constructed and installed. In many cases, a well-designed slate roof will outlast the home it’s installed on. For this reason, slate roofing offers excellent long-term value that more than makes up for its higher installation cost.
- Fire resistance: Slate roofing is one of the most fire-resistant roofs there is. As a result, slate is an excellent choice for dry, hot parts of the country where fire is a constant danger. Slate also has natural insulation properties that help keep your home a more stable temperature while reducing ambient noise.
- Environmental friendliness: Most roofing waste is attributable to asphalt shingle roofing, which needs to be replaced every 20 to 30 years. Slate, on the other hand, can last a century or longer, giving it a more positive environmental impact. Additionally, slate is a 100% natural material that can be harvested without ecological disruption. It’s also free of the plastics and chemical treatments found on synthetic shingles.
Whatever your reasons for choosing slate for your home, it's important to partner with a contractor who knows how to work with this material. That's where Huber & Associates comes in. We are longstanding roofing experts that bring extensive industry expertise to every job we take on. Make us your partner for new roof installations, repairs, slate roof restorations and more.
