Why Slate is a Great Option for Alexandria Roofing

Slate offers a unique, natural beauty unrivaled by any other roofing material – but few roofing contractors know how to correctly install it. At Roofing & More, our Alexandria roofing professionals have the necessary expertise working with slate to create a beautiful, durable roof that will truly make your property stand out.

Slate’s natural tendency to split allows it to be crafted into sheets of various thicknesses. The sheets can then be cut and trimmed into the desired sizes. The unique colors and custom-designed nature of a slate roofing job brings to a property a character unlike any other.

Perhaps the most impressive characteristic of slate is its extremely long lifespan. With proper upkeep, slate roofs can last up to 200 years! Here are some additional benefits of using slate for your roofing project, whether residential or commercial.

• Superb fire resistance. Slate will not burn! • Low maintenance. Repairs are relatively simple and generally only involve removing or replacing damaged slates. • Durability. Slate is invulnerable to sun, wind, and the wear and tear which break down other forms of roofing. • Versatility. Because it comes from nature, slate is available in a rainbow of colors and a wide selection of sizes. The variety of textures, thickness, sizes and shades adds character to a roof.

With professional installation, regular inspections and maintenance by a knowledgeable contractor, a beautiful slate roof can be the only one you’ll ever need.
