Slate Shingles

Shingle Asphalt Roof

For centuries, builders and homeowners have considered slate asphalt roofing one of the very best types of roofing because a well installed slate roof will last longer than the house. Some slate roofs have lasted for centuries, and maintenance costs can be next to nothing. However, slate roofs are expensive...until now! We install Inspire Roofing Products that are affordable, genuine hand-split quarried slate - it's not the cheap-looking imitation slate roofing shingles that you may get with other roofing companies.

How Slate Roofing Works

Slate is prized for its ability to be split into the thin sheets that go into making slate roofing tiles. As slate is a type of metamorphic rock, it is waterproof and fireproof and will benefit the homeowner when it comes to home insurance premiums. Because they last so long and produce very little waste, slate roof tiles are also environmentally friendly. Slate is a wholly natural product, and its use helps keep other types of roofing shingles out of landfills. When they finally do outlast the house, the tiles can be reused.

Beauty and Durability

Slate tiles are beautiful, and come in several thicknesses and a wealth of colors. They range from the traditional blue-gray to black, red, purple and green. Besides the beauty of slate, the tiles are resistant to deterioration caused by wind, sun, snow and rain. They also don't hold on to ice or snow, whose weight damages other types of roofs. Slate also keeps the temperature of the home stable, which helps to keep energy costs down.

Slate Roof Installation

Slate roof installation requires skill and expertise, and there aren't that many roofers in Maryland left who know how to do it properly. A slate roof is basically custom made, and the steeper the slope of the roof, the more appropriate it is for slate. The rock is chosen, split by hand and trimmed at the quarry. Ideally, all the shingles should come from the same quarry. Slate usually does not need the underlayment required by other roofing materials, but the shingles are fastened by roofing nails made of copper, stainless steel or hot-tipped galvanized metal.
