Traditional Slate & Cedar
Traditional Slate and Cedar Roofs have been around for hundreds of years and are exceptionally beautiful. Both are very durable and resistant to severe storms. Cedar lasts longer than standard asphalt roofs and slate can last up to 100 years! Copper accents are the perfect detail to complete the project.
Traditional Slate Roof
Traditional Slate roofs are built to last. If you look at homes from even centuries ago, many slate roofs are still attached. Offering the natural beauty that never goes out of style, a slate roof is a practical and tested choice that consistently exceeds customer expectations.
Another fantastic perk of slate tile roofs that cannot be understated is that they are not only energy efficient, but they’re an environmentally friendly roofing option! Slate roofing tiles do not release toxins into the air and since they are built to last, there is no need to replace the tiles and throw away the old ones (which many roofs with asphalt shingles must do roughly every 30 years).
The other element that makes slate roofs so appealing, especially over that of a metal roof, is the low maintenance required. Slate is naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and cannot rot, so those three terms will no longer need to be in your roofing vocabulary if you choose to install a traditional slate roof!
Traditional Cedar Roofs
Cedar roofs are unmistakably beautiful. A classic, wooden look, these roofs have long been a staple of suburbia. When compared to material like asphalt, cedar shingles and shakes last at least a decade longer, making them more sustainable and providing customers with more longevity. They are also incredibly resilient and can easily protect your home from even the strongest of winds and precipitation.
Another fantastic perk of cedar shake roofs is that they are incredibly energy efficient. They provide your home with natural insulation, so you will likely see your monthly energy bill decline.
While wood roofs do require regular maintenance, these inspections are something that can easily be scheduled with the team at Blue Nail Roofing & Siding. With years of experience, we have the confidence and expertise to give you continued confidence in your roof, no matter the material you choose!
