If the slate tile is what you need for your roof, call our expert to get your roof structure checked. If the roof structure is not strong enough, we might have to reinforce the roof before installing the slate.
If you have a historic home, a family home perhaps with more than 100 years old slate roof, we can restore it to its original looks. Not many roofing companies will help you with it. Our slate experts will take pictures of the existing roof, and make sure the restored roof represents the feel and design of the original roof. Since original slates were built from cutting and splitting natural stones, they were extremely heavy and not as effective as roof material. That is why modern slates are manufactured in factories. These slates look and feel the same as traditional slate but these are stronger and more durable while being lighter than natural slate.
The natural weathering of the roofing slate expresses itself as a gradual chipping and scaling mechanism along the planes of cleavage. Thin paper laminations flake off the slate surface and when the inner layers begin to come apart or delaminate, the slate becomes soft and spongy.
