Slate Roofing

Construction & Features

Natural slate shingles are made from stone taken directly from the earth. Composite slate shingles are made up of a combination of plastic and rubber materials that offer the same quality at a lower price point.

Because slate is made up of inorganic material, slate shingles will never rot or decay.

The mineral composition of natural slate produces a wide variety of colors ranging from black and gray to blues, greens, and even red tones. Due to high levels of mica in the stone, slate has an attractive natural sheen making it shimmer on sunny days.

Slate roofing is the perfect option if you are looking for long-term durability, a timeless look, and a roof that will last a lifetime (and then some)!

There’s no doubt about it: slate roofing is a premium product, and a serious investment. Nonetheless, a slate roof can pay for itself if installed and maintained correctly—and that’s what we’re here for.

Choosing a Shingle Type

Before you decide whether slate roofing is the right choice for your home, there are a few stylistic options to consider. While slate, by nature, tends to limit color/style options, choosing a color and style you’re sure of will help you make the most of slate’s 80-100 year performance.

There are three main styles of slate roofing you need to know about:

Textural Slate Roof

With a similar look to a classic slate roof, textural slate has a natural and rough appearance. This adds depth and a textured finish allowing for a more interesting style that is sure to enhance the visual quality of your roof.

Standard Slate Roof

Standard slate shingles are essentially the opposite of a textural slate style. They are flat, uniform, and smooth. Standard slate shingles offer a more modern and clean look compared to the rugged, rough style of a textural slate roof.

Multicolored (Blended) Slate Roof

Multicolored slate roofs mix shades of gray, green, black, and purple to form an eye-catching style. This type of slate roof offers a unique visual appeal without compromising the organic, natural look slate roofing is known for.

The Pros & Cons of Slate Roofing

As with any shingle type, slate has its pros and cons. To help you make the right decision, we’ve compiled a detailed list of pros and cons below.
