Looking for a Slate Roofing Contractor in Alabama?

Slate Roofs Look Amazing!


Don’t they? Slate roofing is well known as one of the highest quality and longest lasting roofing materials on the market by far. Because slate roofing is a natural stone product, it has a beautiful and natural appearance making it extremely unique as far as roofing goes.


There is hardly any other roofing material on the market that is quite as beautifully stunning as slate roofing. The incredible part about slate roofing however is the length of time it lasts. If you’re careful to take good care of your slate roof, it can last you almost 150 YEARS!

Not only does it last you a lifetime with proper care and maintenance from a professional, but it also is one of the most fire resistant roofs on the market! 100% fire resistant! That means that any careless sparks from wildfires, fireworks or adjacent house fires won’t make your roof surface go up in flames.



Slate – The Eco Friendly Roofing Option


Slate roofing is also one of the most environmentally friendly types of roof. Why? Well, for starters waste from re-roofing accounts for more than 5% of the total waste being sent to landfills. A majority of that waste is attributed to asphalt shingle roofing due to the fact that they have to be replaced every 30-40 years. By installing a slate roof you can keep any extra waste from moving into the landfill for 100+ years!
