Natural Slate roofs are known to last upward of one hundred years. The longevity makes slate roofing a great option for people planning to make their current home, their forever home.
Because of its durability and resistance to all types of weathering, natural slate roofing almost never requires maintenance work or repairs, making it a practical and reliable home roofing solution.
Though natural slate roofing is more costly than other roofing solutions, it will be unlikely to need repairing or replacement in your lifetime, making it extremely cost effective. Slating also massively increases the value of a house.
Natural Slate roofing is not advisable to walk on. It is extremely slippery in wet weather conditions and can also break under the weight of a human. If you find that you do need to walk on your natural slate roof, we recommend contacting your installer to see if it is safe to do so.
