If you are looking for a “lifetime” roofing system that will provide superior durability and add a distinctive touch of timeless beauty and curb appeal to your home, then consider investing in a natural slate roof. For centuries slate has been highly acclaimed for its natural beauty and memorable longevity, unmatched by other materials. Investing in a slate roofing system is a major financial commitment. Therefore, it is critical to learn about advantages and drawbacks of slate before you make a buying decision.
Whether you need a brand-new slate roofing installation or complete replacement, Skywalker Roofing is there to offer top quality service. With decades of on-the-job experience, we have everything it takes to deliver quality workmanship. As one of the largest roofing contractors in the Piedmont Triad, we provide customers with personalized attention and quality workmanship for any type of roofing material, including original and composite slate.
As one of best roofing contractors in the Triad, we understand that slate is durable, attractive, but slightly more expensive than shingles and metal roofs. However, the benefit is that with our experience we know that a leak in your slate roof can be fixed without the need for a full roof replacement. We offer slate roof repair for our North Carolina customers and do everything that we can to reclaim the slates that are in a good enough condition and only replace the ones that cannot be reused.
Our slate roof repair process is thorough and comprehensive and starts with evaluation of the problem. We check for missing slates, damaged slates and identify if the flashing and valleys are in good shape and if the roof can be repaired, or not. Once we know the problem upon our inspection, we provide you with estimates of work with price and warranty details. To start working we then install special setup that prevents us from walking directly on slates. We replace the missing or broken slates by removing the old nails using special tool called slate ripper. We then remove all pieces of broken slate, install slate hook and hang new slate. Sometimes, we may also need to change flashing or valley, all slates around it need to be taken off, new flashing put into place than the same slates are installed.
If you are in the market for a full roof replacement or you need a new roof and are pondering about slates, we can install the best slates that fit your budget and the architectural style that you need. If you require an upscale look for your home or business, consider the many advantages of original slate. While it is expensive than composite slate, with its long-lasting nature, durability, and unmatched beauty, it’s an enduring way to enhance the architectural look of any building.
Composite Slates, also known as synthetic slates, offer big savings to you. While the traditional slate ranges from about $10 per square foot to over $40 per square foot, depending on which variety you choose, composite slate, costs approximately $7 to $10 per square foot. In addition to the materials savings, you’ll save money on composite slate installation — which is much easier and faster than natural slate roof installation. It’s likely that you’ll save several thousand dollars by switching to synthetic slate.
Slate roofing is an art. Skywalker Roofing will lay individual tiles on the roof pitch, blending colors and sizes to create a look of distinction. When your slate roof work is handcrafted and completed, it will be naturally water repellent, fireproof and highly resistant to the elements.
