Slate Shingles

Natural slate rock is used to create slate shingles. The tiles are split by hand, which gives them a beautiful non-uniform appearance. As opposed to shingles, slate tiles are put in place manually, one at a time, requiring a lot of care and attention to detail.

 

Pros

Natural slate roofing is extremely robust and can be customized. Because of a slate roof's design, it is possible to choose tiles with a variety of widths and varying colors to achieve a more elegant, distinctive look. A stylish roof is durable! If the conditions are favorable slate roofs last up to 100 years. This means that your roof is likely to be around for decades to come. The longevity of the slate roof is an excellent benefit!

 

Cons

Slate roofing is also an extremely complicated system to set up. Slate rocks are very resistant to any weather. However, slate tiles are susceptible to breaking or break if the Roof It Better roofing crew fails to follow the correct methods of installation. It is crucial to choose an experienced and skilled roofing contractor to install your palm rooftop. In addition, slate is a weighty material, and that means every structure it covers has to be constructed to accommodate that weight. This should not be a problem when your home is built with strong frames and all the support you require. Synthetic slate may be an ideal option if your home isn't designed for this kind of roofing material.

 

Synthetic Slate

Synthetic slate shingles are made from recycled materials. They're modeled after natural slate using chisel marks that give the distinctive, imperfect look of slate rock!

 

Pros

Synthetic slate tiles weigh a fraction of what natural slate weighs, meaning no additional structural support is required for installation! This makes synthetic slate tiles a preferred option for construction in residential homes. Because synthetic slate is treated with UV inhibitors, it's impervious to sun-induced deterioration. As with natural slates synthetic slate roofs may also be stylized with varying tiles sizes and colors.

 

Cons

Synthetic slate is not without its disadvantages in the sense that it's not yet sufficiently old to determine its longevity. It is true that synthetic slate tiles are the result of extensive research and rigorous testing, yet it is one of the most advanced roofing materials that the world offers. Furthermore, each synthetic slate manufacturer produces products uniquely, so you should rely on the expertise of the palm beach roofing experts in deciding on the right product for your house's requirements.
