Longevity Of Slate Tiles

The lifespan of some roofing materials is only 30 years when they will need to be replaced. Slate roofing tiles, on the other hand, can last up to 100 years. This incredible durability can only be achieved however if the roof is correctly installed by skilled and experienced professionals.

Is Slate Roofing Plymouth Environmentally Friendly?

As responsible Plymouth slate roofers, we know we only have one planet so it’s our responsibility to protect the planet . Investing in slate roofing tiles is one way to do this. Slate roofs last up to 100 years, so by choosing slate you are not only creating a beautiful looking home for you and your family to enjoy but also helping the environment by using a roofing material that lasts a long time and can be recycled.

Fire Resistance Of Slate Tiles

Although it is not something you immediately think about when thinking of using slate but fire resistance is a major benefit of this material

Plymouth slate roofing can be used to make a completely fireproof roof, which is a major advantage over some other types of roofing options.

Slate roofing tiles can protect your home against any potential fires from nearby roofs or from other risks like fireworks.

After reading all the information, using slate for your roof might sound too good to be true but as with all things, there are some drawbacks to consider when making a decision. Cost is probably going to be the biggest issue.

Prices Of Slate Roofing Plymouth

Slate tiles are expensive. The cost of this roofing material can be much more than the price of some other materials so it is crucial to do your research and choose an experienced Plymouth slate roofer so that you don’t end up with a poorly constructed roof and waste your money.

It might be worthwhile to consider an alternative if money is tight and you don’t care too much about the appearance of your roof or its fire resistance.

It is important to remember that although the price tag may be high, it will buy you a roof that lasts 3X longer than some other roofing materials and it looks great.

Weight Of Roof Made With Slate

You don’t want your roof falling on you whilst you’re watching TV, so it’s very important to have your home surveyed by a professional before installing slate roofing.

Slate is generally heavier than most man-made tiles so you need to ensure your house has adequate support beams for sufficient load-bearing capability.

Use Experienced Slate Roofers Plymouth

You might think all Plymouth slate roofing companies would have the knowledge to put up a slate roof, but this is not always true. Most roofing contractors specialise in certain kinds of roofs, so always make sure the Plymouth slate roofers you use have a lot of experience in installing slate roofs before hiring them.

Not All Plymouth Slate Roofers Are Equal

Installing slate roofing Plymouth properly requires a lot of knowledge and experience. A local slate roofer Plymouth that isn’t well-informed and lacking experience will leave your home exposed to the elements which can cause damage.

We have been installing Plymouth slate roofs for over 15 years and come highly recommended by all the happy and satisfied customers we have served over the years.

Durability Of Slate Roofing Plymouth

We’ve seen that slate roofs can last up to 100 years which makes this a great choice for your house but slate roofing can be quite fragile. Be aware that roofing contractors who need future access to your roof could damage your slate tiles.

Broken slate tiles mean roof repair. Slate can be difficult to replace because every tile is unique. It is hard to find a matching slate, so any replacements may stand out. You can avoid this problem by saving some slate when you have your roof installed to act as replacements if they get broken or damaged in later years.
