Slate Roofs Are Beautiful, Distinctive, and Durable

Slate roofs are often a show of a time tested and distinctive home.  Natural slate is s taken from quarries and then formed into shingles. Natural slate is waterproof slate-roofing-lancaster-paand fireproof and an enduring choice for roofing material.

Although Natural – Slate Is Not Perfect

The downside with natural slate is that is can become frail and breakable. It can be damaged by hail or when someone is walking on the roof. The quality and consistency of each tile varies which may cause a problem. Some slate shingles are softer and less reliable then others. And over time those that are less perfect, have a tendency to degrade and become crumbly.
