Trust Your Roofing Project to Our Experienced Roofing ContractorsSlate is considered a premium roofing product. Not only is it extremely beautiful since it’s made from natural stone, it’s also one of the longest-lasting roofing materials available, lasting well over 100 years.
On the flip side, slate isn’t for every home. For one, it’s more expensive than most other materials. Slate also requires roofing contractors who understand its unique needs, especially in terms of its extra weight, which requires additional structural support in most cases. Plus, poorly installed slate roofing can lead to major damage to your home, and the tiles can easily chip or break if mishandled.
That’s why it’s important to hire a roofer that understands the material and has a track record of superior workmanship. Since 1986, Wortham Bros Inc., has been the contractor that Texans trust for all their roofing needs.
Benefits of Slate Roofing
Slate’s benefits far outweigh its drawbacks. These benefits include the following:
- Durability: As mentioned, slate can last a minimum of 100 years, but many roofs are still around over 150 years later. While it’s more expensive, you may never have to replace your roof again.
- Aesthetics: Slate is very pretty, and each tile is distinctive with different grains and colors. This makes your roof unique.
- Fire resistance: Slate is extremely fire-resistant compared to most other roofing materials.
