Slate roof benefits

Natural roofs offer many benefits. Slate roofs are so reliable that homebuyers are willing to pay more for a home with natural slate roofs. They are made from stones derived from metamorphosed sedimentary rocks composed of clay or volcanic ash. See a list of the main benefits below.

  • Properly installed and regular maintenance, you will be looking at more than 150 years of service
  • They are stunningly attractive and come in a multitude of colors
