Slate has historically been proven to be one of the most enduring and beautiful roofing products and when properly installed and flashed, these roofing systems can last for more than 100 years.
The metal flashings and bases of these roofs must be properly formed and fitted, as poor installation can destroy the value of even the most beautiful roof. Implementing a repair and maintenance program can dramatically extend the life of a slate or tile roof.
During installation, graceful shape and color patterns can be integrated for little or no added cost. Vermont unfading red, green, and purple slates are some of the most durable roofing slates.
