Slate Roofing

Many minerals make up slate, for instance quartz and muscovite, biotite, chlorite, hematite, and pyrite to name a few. Oftentimes, you may be fortunate enough to see a purple slate, like the compositions of those in North Wales, or you may see ferrous reduction spheres that make an appearance around iron nuclei in slate, giving it a slight green, spotted texture. Well-versed roofing contractors can only provide with better and issueless installation. One thing is certain; the rich, natural appearance of slate is unmistakable.

Slate Used in Roofing

Slate is a highly desirable roofing agent in use within the building industry. Roofing shingles made from slate often withstand harsher environments when other roofing materials breakdown. Yet, the break ability of slate consists of cleavage and grain; which enable an installed called a Slater, to split the stone into workable sheets. One amazing attribute to slate is its resistance to frost damage, and its ability to absorb less than 0.4% of water.

Hallmark of Excellence

Synthetic slate roofing adds exceptional value to your home. Slate sets up a barrier on your roof that is amazingly durable, waterproof and fireproof. The downside of natural slate, however, is its brittle component, as it is easily damaged in hail and wind storms, or from someone walking on the roof itself. That said; DaVinci Slate is an alternative to natural slate.
