Slate roofing offers homeowners a unique, stylish look for their house. Slate is rock that is cut from ground, with natural patterns and color blends that run throughout the material. Each piece is unique and adds to your home’s aesthetic. It’s a stunning look for many types of homes, including ones that showcase certain architectural features. Slate increases the value of your home for many decades and adds to its curb appeal.
As a natural material, slate lasts as long as 100 years. If pieces of slate require work, they can be repaired, instead of replacing the roof. This long-lasting roof material is an investment in your home. In areas and neighborhoods where the maintenance and renovation of older homes requires maintaining a certain aesthetic, slate roofing is durable and of the highest quality.

Because of slate roofing’s unique properties, it requires copper flashing and finishwork. Copper is thick and durable, and it serves as a stylish accent piece that ties together the natural beauty of slate. As it changes color over time, copper work offers a subtle difference in the look of your home through the decades.
