Slate Roofing Services
For All of Buffalo, NY & Rochester, NY
If you live in a home that is older and has intricate and elegant architecture, an asphalt shingle roof can take away from its true beauty. The eye will immediately go to the roof and people may think how out of place it looks. To enhance the beauty of your home, slate roofing may be your best choice.
Quarried in Maine, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Virginia, our slate roofing tiles provide a unique roofing option that is sure to impress. Along with its natural beauty, slate roofing is also extremely durable and is known to last over 150 years. Slate roofing is also environmentally friendly. Because it is natural stone, there is no pollution during manufacturing, and the shingles are completely recyclable if ever removed.
Slate can weigh anywhere from 500 to 3,600 pounds per square foot depending on the thickness. In comparison, most asphalt shingles found on homes weigh between 200 and 300 pounds per square foot. Therefore, before Neth & Son will install a slate roofing system, your building frame must be inspected and approved to withstand the heavy load.
Slate Roofing vs. Shingle Roofing
Your roof is one of the most vital aspects of your home and if it is not functioning properly, needs repair or replacement, there are a variety of options to choose from. Different types of roofing materials carry their own strengths and weaknesses which must be considered in the selection process. While shingle roofing may be more popular in certain areas of the country, slate roofing is a better investment long-term. There is no denying slate roofing installation is more complex and requires specialized skills, but the certified crew at Neth & Son are experts at the craft. One of the most beneficial aspects of slate roofing is that it's widely considered the most beautiful roofing material. It seamlessly conveys the classical, rustic charm of a natural material. The greys and blacks of slate roofing can complement almost any style of home, and the installation can raise your home's curb appeal and value.
