Whether you are choosing a roof to match the striking beauty of your home or you want your roof to be the shining glory of your home, the beauty of slate roofing will not disappoint. Slate roofing has long been thought of as one of the most beautiful and architecturally pleasing roofing materials. Since it is made of 100% natural stone, each individual slate tile is uniquely designed as nature created it and is environmentally-friendly. It actually comes right from the earth itself. Most slate used in New England is quarried in Vermont, New York, or Quebec so you are getting a local product. It’s old-fashioned and timeless look has made it a popular home roofing choice in Vermont. Throughout the area, you will see homes and barns adorned with slate tiles.
The typical lifespan of slate roofing in New Hampshire is longer than most any other roofing material. Most roofs will last 20 or even 30 years before finally needing to be replaced. Installing a slate roof on your home will be a once-in-a-lifetime decision because that’s how long it will last: your lifetime and more. If installed and maintained properly, slate roofs have been known to last as long as 150 years. Not only is slate roofing long-lasting, but its longevity can be fully contributed to its durability. Slate roofing is fireproof and resistant to acid and pollutants. Having the highest storm resistance of any roofing material is crucial for preventing roof repair and replacement in the harsh Vermont winters.
Slate roofing comes in a variety of colors and grades. From the more common black and red to the colors that make a statement all their own like green or even purple. The unique characteristics of slate make it one of the most versatile roofing materials. There are no limits to the creative designs that can be accomplished with it. From intricate patterns to mix and match color schemes, if you can imagine it, it can be done.
