One of the most beautiful and elegant sloped roofing options available, slate roofing is a durable and natural roofing system that has been used for centuries. Slate roofing offers a distinctive, smooth look and can be made of synthetic or natural slate. A lifetime roofing system, slate roofing provides superior durability, longevity and quality when compared to most other roofing materials.

Investing in a slate roofing system is a large financial commitment, but it’s well worth the cost. If you’re looking for slate roofing installation in Calgary, rely on Onit Roofing & Exteriors Inc. We work with residential and commercial clients to repair, replace and install beautiful roofs.

Long-Lasting Roofing

Slate roofing is the longest lasting roofing material available to you, far surpassing wood, asphalt or rubber with lifespans up to and even exceeding 100 years. This means that once you install a slate roof, you’ll probably never need a new roof again.

On top of its amazing lifespan, slate roofing offers many benefits over other roofing materials:

  • Non-combustible material resistant to fire, wind and storms
  • Natural stone material that’s waterproof and leak resistant
  • Non-fading stone that holds colour
  • Resistant to chemical pollutants and acid rain
  • Wide range of colour options
  • Environmentally safe construction
  • Resistant to impact damage and hail
  • Little to no maintenance requirements
  • Available in different shape combinations
  • Customizable sizes, textures and thicknesses
  • Resistant to climactic changes

If you’re looking for a durable and long-lasting roofing material, slate roofing is the most reliable option available to you.

Types of Slate Roofing

Not only does slate roofing come in many colours, designs and shapes, it is also available in two distinct types:

  • Synthetic: Also called composite, synthetic slate displays the beauty of natural slate with extra durability and easier installation. Synthetic slate is composed of a polymer blend that is nearly maintenance free and lighter than natural slate, which reduces stress on your roofing support structure. 
  • Natural: Natural slate has been around for centuries. Made of natural stone, this material is fireproof, waterproof and long-lasting. Natural slate is environmentally friendly, helps increase your home’s resale value and is a high density material that’s very durable.

Long-term Savings

Slate roofing may be expensive to install, but this is a one-time expense. With roofs that have lasted over 100 years, you’ll never have to replace your slate roof in your lifetime. That means no replacement fees down the road. Additionally, slate roofing requires little to no maintenance over its lifetime. Slate is made of natural or synthetic stone, making it resistant to impact damage, chemical pollutants, fire, wind and more. This resistance helps prevent cracks and leaks in your roof, which will prevent you from paying for maintenance and repair costs over the years.
