Slate Roofing

Has your current roof suffered damage from extreme weather? Has your roof become deteriorated over time? Are you in the planning stages of a new building project? Then now is the perfect time to install a new slate roof. At CMR Construction & Roofing, we help home and business owners find ways to improve the safety, beauty, and dependability of their roofing system. Here are just a few reasons why a slate roof may be the best choice for your needs.


Stone is one of the strongest and most durable materials on the planet. The slate tiles that are used for roofing are naturally occurring and have already endured the harsh conditions of nature for thousands of years. Rain, snow, sleet, drought, heat, and high winds are no match for the incredible durability of a slate roof. Many residential and commercial building companies will opt for the cheapest, minimum standard asphalt roofs on the market, leaving it up to the buyer to make improvements if desired. These flimsy shingles are easily damaged by normal wear and have a difficult time surviving hurricanes, thunderstorms, freezing temperatures, harsh sunlight, and other severe climate conditions. When you choose slate as your roofing material, you’ll rest easy knowing that the interior of your home or commercial property is well defended, regardless of what is happening outside.


Conventional shingles may require repair or replacement once every decade. While it may be an affordable option during installation, maintaining an asphalt shingle roof can cost an enormous sum over time. Most households or businesses will need to replace their entire roof every 15 to 20 years, which increases the expense even more. A slate roof can last centuries if well cared for. In fact, many refer to slate as the forever roof, since it’s likely a property owner will never need to invest in another roof installation again.


One of the most popular reasons for choosing slate over other roofing materials is the astounding aesthetic qualities. The beauty of a slate roof is unmatched, giving your home or commercial establishment an instant stately appearance. If curb appeal is a priority for you, then a slate roof is a must. Today’s options include a wide range of colors, textures, and design patterns to match any décor preferences, from Old World Romance to Modern Minimalism. There’s sure to be a slate roof option that’s perfect for your personal style. Our specialists will help you design a roof that will meet your unique needs and lifestyle.
