The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing

When making your decision about the type of roofing you prefer, there will be pros and cons. It’s best to know what to expect.

Pros of Slate Roofing

  • Beautiful: Slate is a popular material because of its aesthetic value. Slate roofs are striking and come in a variety of color options.
  • Durable: Slate is incredibly durable and fire-resistant. You can count on it to last at least 50 years — some even last over 100 years! This means minimum maintenance and replacement costs!
  • Eco-friendly: Slate roofs are sustainable and can be recycled after their service life.

Cons of Slate Roofing

  • Expensive: Compared to other roofing materials, slate roofs are more expensive due to their longevity and durability.
  • Heavy: Slate is very heavy and may require extra framing. Installing a slate roof is always a job that must be left to the professionals.

Slate Roof FAQs


Will a slate roof increase my home’s value?

Slate roofs last much longer than traditional asphalt shingles. Even if you don’t stay in your current home forever, your house will have a higher value than other homes with traditional roofs.

How do I clean my slate roof?

Your slate roof needs very little maintenance. After installation, we will give you a checklist so that you know what it will take to keep your roof in its best shape.

    I filled out the appointment section n their website explaining I needed repair and inspection to my roof after shingles were found on the patio deck after the previous evenings wind. I received a call back within minutes after leaving … More the website. I had an appointment the next day and it was repaired the same day. I will use them again.

    Andy, saved us!
    We had a leaking ceiling vent in our master bathroom.
    They came out the same day and sealed the vent for us. He would charge us, but I insisted they let me buy their lunch. We will only use Kirness Roofing.

    The best. Personable from top down. Answered phone promptly, Andy out late that afternoon on way back from Red Lodge assignment for my assessment. Crew here within a week and efficiently made repairs that look great to me. Three companies … More I called earlier either didn't follow through or even after assessment never got back to me. Nice to see that Billings still has companies that care. Thanks, Andy and crew.
