Benefits of Slate Roofing
Slate is essentially laminated rock, so it has the ability to be split into tiles. Slate tiles are available in a number of different colors, so you can perfectly match the exterior design of your home. It is a very durable material and has a long lifespan, up to 50 years or more in some cases. Because it is metamorphic stone, slate is more resistant to fire and extreme weather conditions than some other roofing materials. Louisiana tends to see high winds and rainy conditions regularly, and slate is an excellent roofing material to stand up to these conditions.
Slate also offers energy efficiency because it has increased insulation capabilities. It can help you save money with your insurance company, as well. Because it is fire resistant, some insurance companies offer lower rates for homeowner’s insurance. It requires little maintenance and if and when you do have damage, it is easy to repair and a bit less costly than some other roofing materials.
Many homeowners simply prefer the look of slate over other material. It allows you to make your home really stand out, and offers a number of possibilities regarding style and design. You can completely change the look of your home by simply having a slate roof installed.
