Slate Roofing Installation

slate rooferSlate roof tiles are an incredibly durable roofing material typically used in high-end residential projects. Slate has two lines of breakability – cleavage and grain – which make it possible to split the stone into thin sheets that work perfectly as roof tiles. When broken, slate retains its natural appearance but is flat and easily stackable. Alliance Roofing performs quality slate roofing repairs and installation throughout Glastonbury and Hartford, CT. So don’t hesitate to contact us at 860-633-7243

Slate is particularly suitable as a roofing material because it has an extremely low water absorption index. That means it is some of the most weather-proof roofing material around, if not the most. Natural slate is coveted by roofing contractors because it is beautiful and durable at the same time – the perfect combination. Some slate roof systems can last several hundred years, which means generations of a family can enjoy the splendor and safety of a slate roof system. In Hartford, CT, Alliance Roofing offers slate because it is very resistant to frost and breakage from freezing, a pretty common occurrence here in Connecticut. It is also fire-proof and hardly requires any maintenance. Almost every well done new slate roof installation improves the resale value of the home it’s built on.
