The Benefits of a Slate Roof

While there are lots of options for roofing tiles and shingles, it may be a good idea to invest in slate instead. Even if the cost of the materials and installation may be higher at the outset, the overall savings are definitely worth it.

Some of the advantages of slate roofs include:

  • Greater efficiency of energy, preserving the lifespan of the HVAC systems
  • Resistance against fire, hail, wind, and other inclement conditions
  • An extremely long lifespan, as slate roofs can stay tough for over 100 years
  • Flexibility in a wide range of colors, styles, and textures
  • Ease in replacing or re-using the slates when the roof needs to be renewed

Since a slate roof is a hefty endeavor, it is important to discuss the details of where it is going to go before the installation. The heavy weight of the roof requires a certain slope or pitch to stand strong. Our experienced team at Lighthouse Roofing can inform homeowners of all necessary information before the installation.

Parts of a Tile Roof System

It is easy to assume that a tile roof is made of just tiles, but there are several components that compose the whole roof. It is important to have all these elements installed by a professional, otherwise, the rest of the roof will not be as stable.

A tile roof system should always include:

  • Underlayment – While tile forms the very top layer of protection against the elements, it is critical to have an underlayment beneath it. This middle barrier works to guard the wood roof deck with a secure waterproofing solution. If this internal level of protection was not there, then the deck could still suffer water damage from moisture seeping in between the tiles.
  • Battens – When tiles are installed onto a wooden roof deck, there needs to be a way to fasten them tightly. Battens and batten extenders serve an important role in gripping the tiles and connecting them to the deck. Without battens, the tiles could easily slip off and break.
  • Flashings – Even with a tight underlayment over the majority of the roof, there would be several weak spots without secure flashing. For example, chimneys, vents, and skylights create vulnerable spots that need to be flashed. The joints, valleys, and hips of walls or places with plumbing lines can also be prone to water damage without flashing.
