Benefits of Slate Roofing

Slate tiles are made of stone or rock and have a lot of significant benefits when used as a roofing material. They’re beautiful in appearance, durable, and last for long periods of time. Here’s some of the most common reasons people choose to install slate roofing tiles:

  • Longevity – One of the most significant benefits of slate roofing is that they last anywhere from 60 to 150 years. In short, you won’t need to replace slate roofing which makes it rather cost effective if the initial installation pricing is within your budget.
  • Appearance – It also looks wonderful and is an all natural material. The dark stone look is a feature of many homes, and since not many people have slate roofing, your home will stand out and look unique. Even further, slate roof tiles offer choices like varying size and thickness, as well as a wide array of color options
  • Energy Efficient & Environmentally Friendly – Another massive benefit of hiring slate roofers is that they will make your home super energy efficient. Slate tiles are naturally dark in color and absorb heat when it’s hot outside and releases it when the weather cools off, which will save you tons of money on your energy bills and help to offset the initial cost. Roofing waste, mainly asphalt shingles, accounts for more than 5% of waste in landfills every year. Slate is an easy choice to help with that reduction.
  • Fire Resistant – Slate roofing is one of the most fireproof roofs available. Unlike many other roofing materials like asphalt and cedar, slate tiles themselves are completely fire proof. 

The Cons of Slate Roofs

The main concern people have when considering a slate roof is the price. Slate roof cost is one of the highest on the market, and it’s not to be taken lightly. On top of the cost of materials, hiring skilled tradespeople to install it properly will cost you even more. Here’s some things to take note of:

  • Find a Contractor That Knows Slate – Many roofing contractors have limited knowledge on slate roofs. Unfortunately, many try to install them anyways due to the high profit margins. When hiring a contractor, be sure to get references and ask about their experience.
  • Weight – Slate roofing tiles can wiegh over 1,000 pounds per square meaning you’ll need to make sure your home or business structure is sound before installing them.
  • Fragile – Slate is extremely fragile and can cause issues for anyone attempting to walk around on the roof. One misstep can cause thousands of dollars of damage in broken tiles.

Slate Roofing Costs in Northern Colorado

Weighing the cost vs return on investment is the biggest concern for most homeowners installing slate roofs.  Slate roofing tile cost can range anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000 per square, and sometimes up to $8,000 with installation costs. That’s around 4 to 5 times more than the typical roofing material.  Obviously, the cost can be justified however since roofs can last up to 5 times longer.

    Logan and the crew did a fantastic job on our roof project this fall. They replaced our entire roof and installed all new gutters and downspouts. They also pulled out about a thousand nails on our patio cover which were used by the last … More roofers that were too long. (Poking through the ceiling...)
    The entire process was efficient, the team was very professional and they cleaned up their work areas nicely when done. They repaired a few rotted boards prior to installing the new gutters as well as a bad spot on the patio. All in all they did a very professional job and I feel they went the extra mile to make sure everything was done correctly.
    I also want to note that the office staff was very pleasant and helpful. They sent us all documents on time and Logan offered to fill out the new upgraded shingle form for our insurance company. (This roof replacement was due to wear, not hail damage.)
    I would recommend Advanced Roofing Technologies to anyone and would use them again in the future!

    We had our roof replaced by Advanced Roofing a few years back. They did a great job, and reasonably priced hail resistant upgrade asphalt shingles.
    I needed color matching shingles to add exhaust fans for more roof space cooling. Logan
    … More dropped off a bundle of upgraded hail resistant shingles and did not charge. Who does that these days? Good people!

    After a brutal hailstorm, we were flooded with dozens of local and fly-by-night roofers. We knew nothing about the situation and were quickly overwhelmed by all of the world-promising offers. A friend suggested we try Advanced Roofing Technologies. … More I'm not being hyperbolic by stating that it was one of the best decisions we've ever made. It started with our project manager, Logan. Not only was he the pinnacle of professionalism, but he went above and beyond to make sure we understood every step of the process. We simply would not work with anyone other than him going forward. The actual roof and gutter repair themselves went seamless. The crews were always positive and prompt with a keen eye to the smallest details. I wouldn't recommend anyone but this company for any sort of roof related work. Thank you Logan, and A.R.T!
