Slate Roofing Installations Made Easy
Fewer types of roofing can match slate roofing for its aesthetics, durability, or longevity. Made of 100% natural stone, slate roofing comes in a multitude of colours and textures to uniquely complement any home’s style. When properly maintained, slate roofing has some of the industry’s longest lasting shingles (lasting 150 years or more in some cases) that are fire-resistant, mold-resistant, and frost-resistant. Many homeowners choose this type of roofing because it’s also environmentally-friendly. If you’re interested in new slate roofing for your home in the Greater Toronto Area, DVR Roofing would be more than happy to provide you with a free installation estimate.
Benefits of Investing in Slate Roofing
While slate roofing’s initial installation costs may be a little higher than other types of roofing, it’s usually worth the investment. Benefits of slate roofing include:
- Beauty – Slate roofing adds instant curb appeal and elegance to any home. Become the envy of your neighbors today!
- Eco-Friendly – Slate shingles are capable of being recycled and they don’t give off any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or other forms of pollution during their manufacture or installation.
- Energy-Efficient – Slate shingles typically provide better insulation, which results in lower energy costs when compared with other types of roofing.
- Low Maintenance – Slate roofing requires little to no maintenance and may be repaired easily by a professional contractor by sliding out and replacing damaged pieces.
Cost-Efficient Composite Slate Roofing in Toronto
While slate roofing is deemed a worthy investment by many homeowners, DVR Roofing recognizes the fact that not all of our customers are willing or able to invest the time and money into it. Natural slate roofing shingles can be quite expensive to install because of the high quarry and transportation costs involved, not to mention the special attention they require to cut and nail because they’re fragile and can crack easily during or after the installation process.
However, if you like the look of natural slate roofing but are seeking a more cost-efficient and less labour-intensive alternative, we also offer composite slate roofing in the Greater Toronto Area. While it’s a synthetic form of slate roofing, you won’t be able to tell the difference aesthetically speaking. Composite slate roofing is made to mimic the appearance of natural slate roofing for a beautiful, handcrafted finish at a fraction of the installation cost.
