The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing

When making the decision about the type of roofing to install, there will be pros and cons. Our team highlighted some things to consider below.

The Cons of Slate Roofs

Pros of Slate Roofing

  • Looks Great: Slate is a gorgeous roofing material that has been used for centuries. Homeowners love the classic, clean lines that slate roofs add to their homes. You might think your only color choice is grey, but there are many colors, thicknesses and widths to choose from.
  • Durability: Slate roofs are made from natural, long-lasting stone. Because this material occurs naturally, it’s tried and true. Your slate roof will last 40+ years, with some of the best rated slate lasting over 75 years. Slate roofs are one of the long-lasting roof material behind tile roofing that can last up to 100 years.
  • Low Maintenance: Unlike traditional shingles, slate roofs are not susceptible to the same damaging effects of extreme weather. Because of their durability and longevity, once your roof is installed, you won’t have to spend much time thinking about it.

Cons of Slate Roofing

  • Cost: Slate roofs do cost more than some other roofing options. This is because of the materials and installation. However, extra money up front could save you thousands down the line.
  • Weight: This type of roof is heavy – slate roofs can weigh four times more than a traditional asphalt shingle roof. The thicker the slate, the heavier your roof will be.
