Natural Slate roofing material has been used on roofs around the world for centuries, as it comes from natural stone that is formed under intense heat and underground pressure. Although slate is very hard, manufacturers can split it into pieces to form tiles or shingles.
Popular slate roofing colors include red, gray, purple and green; when exposed to different weather conditions, it weathers into a beautiful shade.
Benefits of Slate
Positive aspects that make slate a brilliant choice of roofing material is that slate can withstand any weather condition, and is impervious to mildew, mold and other sources of contamination. Due to slate's high durability, a homeowner does not have to replace or repair the roof for a number of years, as slate can last up to 75 years or more, without requiring much maintenance. (Just be aware of the regional conditions one may live in.)
Slate roofs also contribute to a healthier environment because it can be recycled after its service life.
