The Many Benefits of Slate Roofing
Slate roofing is more expensive to install than many other roofing systems, but one of the most attractive aspects of slate from a financial perspective is its expected lifespan. A slate roof will last at least 75 years. Most will last 100 years or more, and if a slate roof has been expertly installed and well maintained, it isn’t unusual for it to last 150 or even 200 years. While slate does cost more, it delivers an unmatched total cost of ownership, and if you remain in that home, you’ll probably never have to think about reroofing again. Slate roofs are very durable and resistant to damage. They also require little maintenance. Slate also provides a home a gorgeous aesthetic, and while the appearance of slate will mature over time, as long as you keep it clean, it will maintain its color and continue to provide beautiful curb appeal throughout its life.
Is It the Right Time to Replace Your Roof?
Knowing when to replace your roof is a challenge that many area homeowners face. You don’t want to replace your roof too soon and thus increase your costs, but you also don’t want to wait too long and have to repair damage. Age is the number one factor. Know the expected lifespan of your current roofing material, and replace the roof proactively before you reach that mark. Emmons also encourages our customers to schedule annual roof inspections along with inspections after any severe weather that may have damaged the roof, and then to perform any required maintenance as needed. You should also keep an eye on your roof for signs of wear. Missing sections, dark streaking, and the growth of mildew, mold, or fungus are common problems.

Our Roofing Materials
Slate roofing isn’t your only option with Emmons. We specialize in all of the roofing systems used for residential purposes including asphalt shingles and metal roofing.
Three-Tab Asphalt Shingles
Three-tab asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing option because they strike a great balance between affordability and durability. These shingles look great and last upward of 25 years.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Also known as dimensional and laminated shingles, architectural shingles are thicker and thus last longer and provide better protection. They are also available in a much wider range of design options.
Metal roofing systems provide excellent protection while lasting for many decades. Modern systems are available in many different styles, and options include aluminum, copper, steel, and zinc.
Cedar Shake Shingles
Cedar shingles offer a distinctively natural wood aesthetic. They last for over 30 years, provide excellent thermal insulation, and are weather- and storm-resistant.
A tile roof can be made of either concrete or clay. It is resistant to weather, saves money on energy, needs little upkeep, and lasts for up to 50 years.
Shingles should not be used on flat or low-slope roofs. EPDM (rubber), TPO (thermoplastic), or BUR (built-up roofing) are the most commonly used materials on commercial buildings.
Trusted Slate Roof Repair
While slate roofing isn’t prone to damage, it is possible that slate is dislodged or damaged during severe weather. If that occurs, the roof can usually be repaired, and it’s rare that you would need to replace the roof. Emmons will perform a thorough inspection and explore your roof repair options with you. We’ll then carry out a precision repair that not only restores the soundness of the roof, but also blends in with the existing aesthetic.
Slate Roofing Inspections & Care
As mentioned, we encourage our customers to have their slate roofing inspected once every year, and doing so will give you peace of mind. If there is an issue, we’ll be able to catch it before it manifests into a more serious problem. Our team will also have all of the tools and materials needed to carry out whatever routine maintenance that your roof may require.
