If you love the look of slate roofing but can't wrap your head around the price tag, you’ll be glad to know that composite slate allows you to enjoy all of the wonderful qualities of slate, including performance, aesthetics and durability for a lot less.
Composite slate roofing is a great option and comes with many benefits, including the following:
- Costs. You will see significant savings when you choose composite slate instead of the real thing because the material costs a lot less, so you’ll save a ton of money on materials alone. You’ll also see savings when it comes to the installation because composite slate is a lot easier to install and the process is a lot faster. If cost is a concern, choose composite slate because it provides homes with a beautiful and solid roof at a much more affordable price point.
- Lightweight construction. Since this material is not made of stone, composite slate is light because it is made from recycled rubber and plastic. This factor allows for easy installation and in many cases, the tiles can be installed directly over the existing roof and will not put stress on your home’s structure. The lightweight factor does not interfere with the appearance because the materials used for composite slate can be moulded to take on the look of real stone.
- Aesthetics. It’s only natural to want a beautiful looking roof and composite slate will help you achieve this type of appearance and will add aesthetic appeal. Once the installation is complete, the composite slate will provide your home with a high-quality roof with a look that will enhance its curb appeal and architectural appearance. What’s even better is that it’s available in very beautiful energy saving colours so that you find an option that complements the rest of the exterior of your home.
- Durability. Composite slate is low maintenance and can stand up to harsh weather conditions, which is perfect for homes in Canada that experience all four seasons. The sustainable design is also highly fire-resistant and because it’s made from recycled products, the tiles can all be recycled when and if you ever have to replace damaged pieces. Composite slate is also specially engineered to last a lot longer than authentic slate, which is a quality many homeowners will appreciate.
