Natural roofing materials offer a level of refinement and beauty that is both extremely popular with homeowners and great for the environment around us. When it comes to natural materials, nothing beats the sheer durability of slate. An all-natural metamorphic rock material created by volcanic ash and clay, slate has been used as a durable and long-lasting roofing material for centuries. It is low-maintenance, fire-resistant, and boasts an expected lifespan that can meet or even exceed a hundred years or more in rare cases.
Roof Life of Oregon offers premium slate roofing services, including installation, repair, inspections, and maintenance. With our ongoing training and attention to detail, we offer peace of mind and confidence of knowing your roof is receiving the finest service available. All of our slate installations are backed by a lifetime workmanship warranty, meaning we’ll fix any issues that arise with mistakes in our craftsmanship over the life of your roof.

Slate tiles offer a more environmentally-friendly option known to last between 75 to 100 years on average. However, the actual lifespan depends on the physical and mineral properties, proper installation, and routine maintenance. At Roof Life of Oregon, we offer slate roofing maintenance and repair services that solve your problems and preserve your roof to maximize its lifespan. We know this is a substantial investment in your property, and we want to help you maximize it by ensuring it is the last roof you ever have to buy.
Fortunately, slate roof repair and maintenance is minimal, so long as the roof is properly installed. Natural slate resists cracking, erosion, or breakage far more than other roofing materials, such as asphalt, metal, or wood. Slate also performs well in virtually any weather condition, including sweltering summer heat and icy winter conditions.
Say Goodbye to Time-Consuming Roof Maintenance
In addition to offering spectacular beauty and a truly unique look for your roof, slate is also widely regarded as one of the most durable and low-maintenance roofing materials available on the market. Unlike other natural materials like cedar shakes, slate roofing is not conducive to mold or algae growth, and that means you won’t have to worry about regularly cleaning your roof to remove this problem.

If you’re looking to replace your roof, when should you consider slate as a possible option? When it comes to slate, the only inhibiting factor in most cases is the upfront cost. Slate is one of the more costly roofing materials, but this investment returns itself fully in due time when you consider just how long slate tends to last and how low-maintenance it is throughout its life.
Unlike many other options, slate roofs are made of metamorphic rock derived from volcanic ash or clay. This gives it a truly unique look, and no two slate roofs are exactly the same. And while slate may have been forged in fire, the rock itself is fire-resistant, making it a great choice for protecting you against fire-related natural disasters.
However, before your installation can begin, your roofer will need to carefully inspect your roof to determine if its structure can support the weight of a slate roof. As a type of natural stone, slate roofs are tremendously heavy, and some homes may need to reinforce their roof’s structure before it can support the weight of a slate tile surface. This may also add to installation costs.
Increased Curb Appeal and Home Value
At the end of the day, homes are an investment and finding ways to boost or maintain curb appeal is one way to help your home stand out when it’s time to sell. Slate tiles provide homes with a classic beauty that isn’t found with other materials. Although slate tiles are not widely manufactured, homeowners can still select from various styles and colors to give their home the perfect combination of color and appearance.
Slate tiles can range from muted grays and blacks to more vibrant greens and reds, though a type of mid-range grey is the most common color available. Homeowners can also find varying thicknesses and grains to create the roof of their dreams.
