Slate Roofing

Slate Roofing is some of the more beautiful and premium roofing options for any residential and commercial building. After you have installed a slate roof and seen its beauty, it’s also pretty cool to understand that your roof will outlive you. These roofs often last for over 200 years. During this time, there is some needed roof maintenance that you will have to partake in. In fact, there is usually not a huge amount of maintenance work but it is important to inspect the overall condition of your roof annually and after storms.
