A slate roofing includes a roof designed of slate, a kind of metamorphic rock that’s very durable, making it extremely suitable for roofing. It’s more common to view slate roofs in places in which slate is naturally abundant, even though slate shingles also can be shipped to other places in the world. As with other kinds of roofing, slate has disadvantages and advantages alike which ought to be considered prior to repairing or installing a slate roof.
Slate is extremely close-grained, and it’ll readily cleave into thin tiles that may be utilized for flooring, roofing, and additional applications. Typically, the rock is dark in tone, and varies from bluish to gray to greenish, and as it’s properly applied by an expert slater, a slate roof has the ability to last for years, even though occasional shingles might come off within inclement weather. Also, the roof is going to be highly water-resistant, and it’ll have the ability to withstand heavy snow accumulations.
As a slate roofing is installed, it’s vital that you utilize an experienced slater in order to ensure the roof is properly laid. Also, it’s recommended to buy additional shingles that may be stored so that if the shingles are lost, broken, or otherwise damaged, newer shingles may be quickly installed, prior to the subroof being damaged. Regularly checking a slate roofing for loose, missing, or damaged shingles strongly is advised, as falling slate shingles may lead to severe injuries to unwitting victims.
