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 would like to thank Jerome from Kirkness Roofing for coming out to inspect my roof-He was very professional. He showed me the pictures of my roof and explained what he had found. He explained I had some wind damage on the shingles but … More no hail damage. My shingles are about 20 some years old but still good for a few years more. I also told Jerome I had a small leak in my garage by my chimney . Jerome went back on the roof to look at the flashing area and he told me there was some open breaks around the chimney. He said he could seal them for me at no charge so I said great. Kirkness I would like to say you have great people that work for you and if my roof does need repair in the future I would call you to install it for me. Thanks-Wayne Reese from Laurel, Mt.
