have been around for hundreds of years
With a lifespan of 80 to 200 years and more, slate shingles are known to be the most water and damage-resistant type of roofing shingles. One of the reasons for slate’s long-lasting qualities can be found in its ability to survive all types of weather, in all types of locations. It can withstand freezing, heat waves, rain storms, hail storms, wind storms, and sand-storms. And, it is resistant to airborne sparks, protecting buildings against fire-spreading dangers. Not much can hurt slate.
Additionally, both homeowners and homebuyers agree on the natural beauty of slate shingles.
They come in a variety of red, purple, green, gray, black, and multicolored choices. Should you decide to sell, you’ll find that your slate-shingle roof will add great value to your home in the eyes of prospective buyers.
However, slate installation demands the expertise of an experienced roofing contractor like Redemption Roofing and General Contracting.

Maintaining And Repairing A Slate Roof
Just as slate roof installation requires special skills, the maintenance, repair and restoration of a slate roof is unique in its demands. Expanding ice can split a slate shingle, and metal flashing can loosen it. That’s why it is important to conduct an inspection and maintenance schedule for your slate roof at least once every three years. Redemption Roofing and General Contracting has the expertise to maintain the beauty and function of your slate roof.
