Types of Slate Roofs We Install


Natural slate roofing is a popular choice due to its durability and long-lasting life. However, because it is a natural rock, the weight of a slate roof can be extremely heavy. Before installing a natural slate roof, ensure your home is structurally sound enough to handle the added weight. If not, retrofitting your home with additional support may be necessary.


If you’re looking for a more affordable option that still offers many of the same advantages as natural slate roofs, synthetic slate tiles may be an ideal solution. Synthetic slate tiles are made from asphalt and rubber polymers that mimic the look and texture of real slate tiles. They’re also lightweight, so they don’t require additional structural support when installed on your home.

The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing

When making your decision about the type of roofing you prefer, there will be pros and cons. It’s best to know what to expect.

Pros of Slate Roofing

  • Beautiful: Nothing says class and style like a slate roof. Whether you opt for synthetic slate or natural stone, both will turn your home into the best-looking one on the block.
  • Long-lasting: With proper installation from knowledgeable professionals and regular maintenance, a natural slate roof can provide beauty and protection for many years to come.
  • Low maintenance: Routine inspections will help you stay on top of needed repairs. Otherwise, there is little maintenance to worry about.

Cons of Slate Roofing

  • Expensive: Quality comes at a price, and slate is not an exception! At five times the cost of asphalt shingles, it’s a serious investment for many homeowners.
  • Heavyweight: Traditional stone slate is tough to install because of its weight, meaning it’s not feasible for just any home.

Slate Roof FAQs

Traditional slate is made out of natural rock, whereas synthetic slate is made out of recycled plastics.
Slate roofs can last 50 to 100 years, depending on whether it’s natural or synthetic.
Slate roofs are very easy to maintain–just keep it clear of debris and stay on top of your inspections! Because slate roofs can easily crack when improperly stepped on, it’s always recommended to call a professional for repair and maintenance.

    My roof was leaking and had awful hail damage. A1 Quality Roofing came out to inspect my roof and gave me a lot of good information about their company, the roofing materials they use and what to expect from start to finish. For my installation … More they were very organized and clean. They kept me up to date on each step. They even notified my neighbors in advance so they could clean their yards or offer a free roof inspection. Excellent company and I will continue to recommend this hard working group.
