In Birkenhead, slate roof specialists such as us, have had to respond to a number of enquiries from customers. One such very often asked question is, “What are the pros and cons of a slate roof?” This natural, beautiful and traditional roof cladding material does indeed offer a number of advantages. However, there are some disadvantages too. The most obvious pro is the beauty of a slate roof. These days one can also get slate in a range of colours from the more usual gray and red to black, green, purple or even mottled. Slate tiles also offer impressive longevity. If a slate roof is properly constructed and cared for it could last more than 100 years! The fact that it is a natural material that lasts a very long time also means it is environmentally friendly. In addition, slate is the only truly fire resistant roofing material. On the down side slate is very heavy so it can only be used to roof or re-roof a structurally sound building. Also, one of the most important things to consider is that it must be installed properly by a roofing company such as Furber who are experienced. If a roof is badly done, slates can slide or be blown off. Replacing slates with ones the same colour can be difficult. The last con is that slate is expensive. However, this initial outlay must be balanced against its longevity and attractiveness.
