Why You Should Choose Composite Slate Shingles
Are you thinking of replacing your roof? Have you considered installing a slate roof? We at Vertex Roofing offer the best services in any roof installation process. We are going to show you why a composite slate roof would be a better fit for your house.
Natural slate roofs have the power to be the center of attention in a magnificent home. These slate roofs are called natural because they are made from actual stones. These stones are mined and crafted into shingles which are then carefully installed on the roof. Slate roofs are resistant to fire and water making them durable.
Disadvantages of Slate Roofing
Since the roofs are made from natural stone, the slates are more likely to become brittle over time. This makes them susceptible to cracking due to impact from being stepped on or being hit by hailstones or other debris material.
The slates also have different quality with some being softer than the rest, and hence they wear out faster. Other slates become brittle and flaky over time adding to the cost of maintenance.
Fortunately, Vertex Roofing SLC has a solution to this problem in the form of composite slate roofing.
Composite Slate Roofing
We at Vertex Roofing believe that a slate roof should be as durable and reliable as it is beautiful. Our experience that spans over 15 years has led us to recommend installing synthetic slate roofing to people who wish to have the breathtaking classic appearance of a roof made from natural slate but want to avoid its shortcomings. Our experienced roofing contractors carefully install our composite slate roofing tiles to match the craftsmanship that is depicted on a natural slate.
