Slate Roofing Des Moines

Slate Roofing Des Moines IANatural slate roofing is most commonly used in homes for its unique look, and excellent protection against rain and melting snow, fire, and strong winds. However, they do not hold up to very large hail storms. Natural slate roofing can also be one of the more expensive roofing shingles out on the market. The average lifespan of a slate roof is 60-80 years. This is significantly longer than the lifespan of most other roofing materials, making slate an excellent choice for those looking for a long-term solution. However, it is important to note that the lifespan of a slate roof can vary depending on the quality of the material and the installation. In some cases, Slate roofs have been known to last over 100 years. With proper maintenance, your slate roof will provide beauty and protection for your home for many years to come.

Slate roofs are becoming increasingly popular, due in part to their many advantages. Slate is a durable, natural material that can last for decades with proper maintenance. It is also fire resistant and can help to insulate your home, saving you money on energy costs. In addition, slate roofing is environmentally friendly and can be recycled at the end of its lifespan. Perhaps the most appealing aspect of slate roofing is its unique look. Slate comes in a variety of colors and sizes, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind roof for your home. Whether you’re looking for a classic or modern look, slate roofing can provide the perfect finishing touch for your home.

Waddle Exteriors carries various roofing shingles to replicate that look of a natural slate roof without any of the negative effects and for a fraction of the cost. The shingles that replicate natural slate mimic the appearance, contours, and texture of natural slate roofing. These shingles are designed for beauty, durability and easy installation. They are also shattered resistant, unlike natural slate which can split into several small and thin pieces.
