The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing

GAF TruSlate Roofing

We recommend TruSlate roofing because of its durability, beauty, fire resistance and strength. TruSlate panels are thinner than full slate slabs but are bolstered by weatherproof materials, making them easier to install and more affordable. With a TruSlate roof, your home will have a timeless and elegant look.

The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing

When making the decision about the type of roofing to install, there will be pros and cons. Our team highlighted some things to consider below.

The Cons of Slate Roofing

Pros of Slate Roofing

  • Looks Great: Slate is a gorgeous roofing material that has been used for centuries. Homeowners love the classic, clean lines that slate roofs add to their homes. You might think your only color choice is gray, but there are many colors, thicknesses and widths to choose from.
  • Durability: Slate roofs are made from natural, long-lasting stone. Because this material occurs naturally, it’s tried and true. Your slate roof will last 40+ years, with some of the best-rated slate lasting over 75 years.
  • Low Maintenance: Unlike traditional shingles, slate roofs are not susceptible to the same damaging effects of extreme weather. Because of their durability and longevity, once your roof is installed, you won’t have to spend much time thinking about it. We also offer metal roofing services which also require little-to-no maintenance.

Cons of Slate Roofing

  • Cost: Slate roofs do cost more than some other roofing options. This is because of the materials and installation. However, extra money up front could save you thousands down the line.
  • Weight: This type of roof is heavy – slate roofs can weigh four times more than a traditional asphalt shingle roof. The thicker the slate, the heavier your roof will be.

Slate Roof FAQs

The main variance in cost is going to be determined by the size of your roof. On average, it will cost about $4,000 to 5,000 for 1,000 square feet in Gaithersburg.

Slate roofs last much longer than traditional asphalt shingles. Even if you don’t stay in your current home forever, your house will price more competitively than other homes with traditional roofs.

Our expert design team will present you with all of our slate roofing options. Many of our customers opt for Welsh slate, which is considered to be the best in the world.

What Our Clients Are Saying

BRAX roofing is one of the best companies I've ever had work on my house. Once we set up a time for someone to inspect the job, the person came on time, explained everything and answered my questions. When I reviewed the proposal, I had several questions which were answered promptly by phone or email. A few days before the scheduled installation of my new roof, they brought cones so I could block 2 parking spots in front of my house. On the scheduled date, they came on time, completed the job and cleaned up outside all around the house. I definitely recommend them.
Kay G.
From start to finish the experience was great. Damon came promptly for the initial inspection. There was good communication as we picked out the roof shingles. On installation day the brave men arrived early and worked hard all day in the hot sun, finishing before sunset. They cleaned up all around the house, and it looks like they were never here. Our new roof is amazing, and really adds value to the house. Very professional, highly recommend.
Kenny F.
I couldn’t be happier with my experience with BRAX Roofing. I hired them to replace the entire roof on my house. The sales representative I worked with went above and beyond in helping me through the process of selecting the best materials and ensuring my satisfaction with the work. Everyone on the team that I was in contact with was knowledgeable, professional and courteous. The job was completed in one day without any issues or hassles and the entire site was cleaned up before they left. Our roof looks great. Based on this experience, I would highly recommend BRAX Roofing to anyone that has any roofing needs!
Jonathan B.
These guys are fantastic! Couldn't ask for better customer service. Very responsive. Very attentive. They were on time. They did everything they said they would do. The follow-up was tremendous and the work was impeccable! Kudos to Mr. Souza, Mr. Rodriguez and Mr. Cardenas for great planning, execution and follow-up. I would recommend BRAX to any one need roof repair.
Keith N.
From beginning to end, BRAX did a great job. Very good paperwork (easy to read/understand and detailed) and the salesperson did an outstanding job keeping up with an ever changing insurance issue. The roof was a challenge as the home is a 4 story townhouse so needed 60-foot ladders. BRAX was easily up to that challenge. I was most surprised by the gift sent after all work was completed.
Mike H.
I had my siding replaced by BRAX Roofing this summer. I highly recommend this company. They sent someone out quickly for a free estimate, they worked with my homeowners insurance to get everything approved. I’m really happy with the end result and they worked with me on some hiccups along the way. Their customer service is really exceptional, everyone I dealt with at all times was fair and extremely polite.
