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.

Your slate roof needs very little maintenance. After installation, we will give you a checklist so that you know what it will take to keep your roof in tip-top shape.

What Our Clients Are Saying

BRAX Roofing is, without question, a five star business. I had a small job but they took at as serious and with as much conscientiousness as if it were a large job. The communication with them was always professional and informative. They sent someone out the same day I called! Unheard of. They did the work quickly and took photos so I could see the work without climbing the roof. I would highly recommend BRAX Roofing! A++ business.
Michael T
100% Satisfaction Great Team to Work With !!! My neighbor is now have a complete roof replacement because she liked what saw !!!
Peter W
Brax Roofing recently completed the replacement of the roof on my 70 years old house. There estimate was very reasonable and the change orders (to replace rotted wood) were minimal. The job was started on the promised date and finished within two days. We were very pleased with the service they provided. Highly recommended.
Alan M
VERY professional team - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Marvin did an amazing job keeping us informed. The owner, Boris, even reached out to us to make sure we knew how much they valued our business. BRAX offered exceptional prices for quality roof+gutter replacement services and products. Again, HIGHLY RECOMMEND; especially if you live in the Alexandria, VA area.

Good communication from start to finish . Questions answered in a timely fashion with knowledge and professionalism. Many pictures were provided to give an idea of what was found and then installed. Would absolutely use Brax again - and will refer those looking for roofers!
