Being in real estate, I cant help but notice the so many beautiful roofs as I drive around. Slate, asphalt, tile, and so many different styles. I recently saw a very pretty patterned slate roof with pink, grey, slates in so many different hues, and I was prompted to look up slate roofs in general. There is a slate roof association, and you can find some fantastic information on their site. You can purchase graduated slate roofs in size, thickness, design and the choices are never ending.
There is also ‘Enviroslate” which looks like slate and less expensive to install.
One obvious question is :
What is the life span of a slate roof?
Slate Roof Lifespan. Natural slate roofs are well known to have a lifespan of hundreds of years with little to no maintenance.
