What is Slate?
Slate is a fine-grained, metamorphic rock derived from a shale-type of sedimentary rock composed of clay and volcanic ash. It has been used as a roofing material for centuries all over the world. The reason slate has endured as a roofing material for so long, despite the plethora of new roofing systems made available with technological and manufacturing advancements, because it is so durable. Slate is practically waterproof, completely fireproof and with the right maintenance has been known to last anywhere from 50 to 100 years.
Not only are they some of the most durable and longest lasting roofing system, slate roofs can do wonders for a commercial building’s curb appeal. They are consistently one of the most esthetically pleasing roofing systems and have been known to do wonders for the resale value of a property.
The key to reaping the benefits of durability, increased resale value and esthetic beauty associated with a slate roof is to make sure you are working with qualified and experienced roofers who believe in providing their clients with impeccable craftsmanship. Even competent craftsmanship won’t cut when you’re dealing with slate roofing. So, when you need Philadelphia’s best commercial roofers, get in touch with Evertight Roofing Solutions.
Certain commercial roofers don’t even know the right technique to walking on slate tiles, which is something to be wary of. Imagine hiring roofers only to have them break all the tiles of your new slate roof.
Maintaining Slate Roofs
If your building already has a slate roof and you have noticed chips or cracks in the tiles or that slates are missing or badly damaged, it is best to quickly replace them. Putting off the replacement or repair of damaged tiles could result in leaks, which can spawn a slew of water damage and mold problems. Furthermore, if there are problems with your roof’s flashing, it could also be the groundwork for serious problems.
Your roof is a big investment and an integral part of your building. Providing it with Evertight Roofing Solutions’s professional preventative maintenance is important to saving you money in the long run. Get it inspected at least once a year and you’ll be able to get the most out of your investment.
