Ridgeline Roofers Columbia is inviting homeowners to find out more about its slate roof installation services in Columbia, MD.

Slate roofs are known for their high aesthetic value and durability as compared to asphalt shingles. They also offer other benefits such as being naturally environmentally friendly and fire-resistant. Since they are inorganic, slate shingles also don’t rot and decay like other roofing materials. So, slate roof installations have been known to last over 100 years and can even have expected lifespans of up to 200 years. Though slate roofing is one of the most expensive roofing options that one can go for, their longevity and the increase in curb appeal they bring make them enticing to homeowners who can afford them.

Slate Roof Installation

The spokesperson for Ridgeline Roofers Columbia talks about the challenges of installing slate roofs by saying, “Slate shingles are heavy as they are basically just solid bricks of stone material. This weight makes it a challenge to install them on conventional homes which have to be reinforced before you can begin. Our recommendation is to use thick lumber as the decking material to ensure the structure of the roof can bear their excess weight. During the installation, it is also necessary to use a felt underlayment to keep the exposed areas of the roof safe from the elements. To create a watertight roof, you need trained roofers who have experience working with the material to lay down seamless overlapping courses secured with galvanized copper nails. If all of this seems complicated compared to just nailing down asphalt shingles, that is because it most definitely is. Installing slate roof shingles is one of the hardest challenges even for professional roofers. Therefore, you should always look for the best people in the industry, such as the talented team that we have assembled here at Ridgeline Roofers Columbia, to handle your home’s slate roof installation.”
