A slate roof is one of the longest lasting roofs available on the market due to their high quality and durability. If you are looking for a tough material for your new building, or even redoing and upgrading one, slate roofs are a great option for its neat look and known strength.
What is a Slate Roof?
Slate roofs are made from small pieces of tile material made from slate, a fine-grained rock made from clay and volcanic ash. These rocks are gathered from a quarry and cut to produce long smooth flat stones. They work great on roofs because of their low water absorption level, at -.04%. In addition to water, they are also efficient for freezing temperatures, perfect for a Wilmington home in the winter.
Slate roofs originally became popular with European historic buildings. They are known for their beautiful and classy appearance, giving you a more modern look with a classic feel.
