Natural Slate Roofing

A recommended option in installing a new roof for your home is slate roofing. Slate roofing is believed to be one of the most durable of all roofing materials available and protects extremely well against fire.

The pricing of the slate can vary anywhere from $10 to $40 per square foot. Such factors such as the design and depth of the roof determine the price of the slate you would buy. While it may not always be the most economical type of roof for your home, there are these advantages to consider:

  • They have good aesthetics that complement any architechtural style.
  • They protect well against leaks
  • Though previously mentioned, slate guards well against fires. It’s worth repeating this because it’s believed that if more houses had slate roofs, there would be little chance of fires jumping from one house to another in the event of a major fire in a specific area.

It’s worth noting that slate roofs have been constructed for the past five centuries because of their durability. Though it may be expensive to build a slate roof, in the long run you would save money than if you built a roof with cheaper materials. Though nothing can last forever, the life of a slate roof can outlast other types of roofs that you may need to replace every 10 years. In the long run, replacing a roof often would cost you more.
