There are Many Options to Choose From
There are many different colors and styles to choose from, so no matter what color your home is, your new sate roof will compliment your sense of style. You can choose from many different colors, patterns, and textures. You can go for a more bold look, heavier textures, or choose to keep it somewhat neutral and smooth.
Although there are many different options, there are a few main types of slate, such as natural slate, fiber cement, and man-made slate. Natural slate is just as the name implies and is derived from natural sources. Fiber cement is comprised of durable materials such as cement and is cost-effective as well as versatile. Man-made slate is less expensive than say a natural slate but is still very durable and aesthetically-pleasing.

It Will Stand the Test of Time
Another great benefit of having slate roofing is that it will last a very long time. It can be somewhat more expensive than other roofing options initially, but it will last much longer than the cheaper options, so it works out to be about the same when it’s all said and done.
Plus, you won’t have to worry about getting repairs or a new roof anytime soon when you invest in a high-quality slate roof. A slate roof has an average lifespan of 75 to 100 years, which is why it has earned the well-deserved nickname, “forever roof.” Your average roof will only last about 15 to 50 years. So slate holds a pretty impressive lifespan. It also doesn’t need to be repaired as often either, since it is so durable.
It Offers Another Layer of Protection
Since slate is a very durable and strong material, it also offers the added benefit of being quite fire-resistant, which is an added bonus in the hot Florida climate. Having a slate roof on your home gives it another layer of protection against the elements and will help to ensure that you, your home, and your belongings are safe from the sometimes very harsh conditions that we live in here in Florida.
Choosing a slate roof for your home is a great way to keep your home secure and will also be something that you can forget about once you have it installed. It is a one-and-done roof installation that you will be glad you invested in. It will also add some major curb appeal to your home and property. So if you are not sure what type of roof to get for your home, you really can’t go wrong with slate.
