Genuine slate shingles are one of the most durable, long lasting materials and has been used for hundreds of years.
Slate shingles are a luxury material chosen by homeowners for its natural colour, texture and high quality.
The expensive cost of these shingles is attributed to the limited availability and production from select quarries that supply the slate. It is important to pre plan with a project using this material to ensure that the supplier has the colour and quantity required.
Slate shingle does weather and change colour over time, each tile weathers individually creating a mix of natural colour and tones to your roof. In addition to this natural weathering, slate roofs take on different appearances through out the day and in different lighting. It can appear to have a sheen in direct sunlight or have a matte look on a cloud covered day.
Maintaining a genuine slate roof is economical and inexpensive-slate shingles are easy to remove, rearrange or replace after installation.
