A slate roof is environmentally friendly, easy to maintain & costs less than just about any other roof when the life of the roof is taken into consideration.
From under the earth to the top of your home, there is nothing more natural than a stone slate roof. Quarried, chiseled and then trimmed into various shapes and sizes, a slate roof will give your home a traditional feel and here at JW Construction Roofing Experts we strive to ensure that is always the case.
The break ability of slate makes it possible to split the stone into thin sheets and, even when broken, slate retains a natural appearance while remaining flat and easy to stack, making it ideal for roofing material.
Natural slate is used by our building professionals at JW Construction Roofing as a result of its beauty and durability. Slate is incredibly durable, being able to withstand pressures to last up to several hundred years with often very little, or no, maintenance. Another benefit of slate roofing is that its extremely low water absorption rate (less than 0.4%) makes it very resistant to frost damage and breakage due to freezing temperatures.
Slate is also fire resistant and energy efficient so what further reason could stop you contacting us to add character to your home with a traditional slate roof that will still be going strong when your grandchildren are all grown up?
