The Luxury Roof: Benefits and Features of Slate

Aug 26, 2015

Your roof is an important element of your home’s overall image, so your choice in material is important. Many homeowners prefer slate, a luxurious and premium material that adds class and elegance to any home.

ABC Roofing & Exteriors explains its benefits.

Slate is uniquely beautiful

The most distinctive quality of slate is its beauty. Having been in use for hundreds of years, it’s a great choice to add traditional beauty to your home. Another great feature of slate is how it gets more beautiful over time. Each slate fades or weathers slightly differently creating a natural mix of colors that’s unique to your roofing in Greensboro, NC.

Slate is durable and long-lived

A slate roof can be a once in a lifetime investment if taken care of properly. It easily lasts for over a century, and there are still some hundred-year-old slate roofs in use today. Slate is also tough; as a natural stone product, it resists degradation no matter the season or weather condition. Slate is also an impact resistant and Class A fire resistant roofing material.

Slate is environmentally friendly

Since slate will last the lifetime of a building, it helps keep other roofing materials out of landfills. Instead of asking roofing companies in Greensboro, NC, to replace your roof every few decades, just ask us to install a slate roof once.

As slate is a natural material, it doesn’t undergo a manufacturing process that releases harmful substances to the environment. Finally, slate can be recycled once it outlasts the building it is installed in.
