The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing 

Every roofing type has pros and cons. We’re here to help you know exactly what to expect when considering slate for your residential roof. 


Pros of Synthetic Slate Roofing

      • Longevity:
      • A slate roof is cost-effective in that it can last anywhere from 60 to 150 years, provided the initial installation pricing is within your budget.

      • Appearance:
        • Slate looks wonderful and is an all-natural material. The dark stone look allows your home to stand out and look unique.
      • Energy-Efficient & Environmentally Friendly:
        • Being naturally dark in color, slate absorbs heat when it’s hot outside and releases it when the weather cools off. This saves money on your energy bills and helps to offset the initial cost of your slate roof installation.
        • Fire Resistant:
        • Unlike other roofing materials, including asphalt shingles and cedar, slate tiles are completely fireproof, making them the premier fire-resistant option.

Cons of Synthetic Slate Roofing

  • Finding a Contractor That Knows Slate:
    • When hiring a contractor, get references and ask about their experience with slate roofs. Unfortunately, many try to install them with limited knowledge due to the high-profit margins.
  • Weight:
  • Because slate roofing tiles can weigh over 1,000 pounds per square, you’ll need to ensure your home structure is sound before installing them.

  • Fragile:
    • Beware of walking your slate roof. This material is extremely fragile, and one misstep can cause thousands of dollars of damage in broken tiles!

Residential Slate Roofers FAQs

What is the cost of installing a synthetic slate roof in Charleston?
This cost will ultimately depend on the size of your home and the slope of your roof, as well as the style and colors you choose. Contact us for a free inspection to evaluate your slate options.
How long is the warranty on synthetic slate roofing?
As with many of our products, a 50-year warranty is available in addition to the 10-year workmanship warranty to ensure that you get the most out of your roof. Speak to our roofing specialists to ask about the specific types of synthetic slate we use and we would be happy to share more about the warranty information.
Are synthetic slate shingles better than natural slate shingles?

Synthetic slate shingles are lighter and less expensive than natural slate shingles. While both are environmentally friendly roofing materials, synthetic slate shingles are easier to transport and install because of their weight and uniform size. They’re less fragile than natural slate, too.
