Slate Roofing System
Has your current roof suffered damage from extreme weather? Has your roof 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.
Slate roofs require less maintenance because of their superior durability. In fact, slate is resistant to rot, mold, and insects, three of the most common causes of roof problems. Additionally, slate is non-combustible and unlikely to be damaged by fire. Put simply; slate roofs require less attention because they tend to experience fewer problems.
Slate is a premium product with a price to match, but it does provide significant value considering its longevity. Despite the initial cost, slate is a wise investment over time, especially for owners that plan to keep their property into the future. Typically, slate roofs continue performing well long after other roofs have been replaced.
