Our trained specialists know how to carefully inspect and repair slate systems, which is a highly specialized skill, often using a commercial drone. Trust your repair and service needs to Cornett Roofing!

Pros and Cons of Slate Roofs vs. Shingles

Even though slate roofs and shingles serve the primary function of protecting your home or business from the elements, there are considerable differences between them. Asphalt shingles are much less expensive upfront and are faster to install. However, they provide a significantly shorter life span and often require more extensive maintenance. In contrast, most slate roofs can last up to 100 years or more.

Many property owners consider slate the most elegant roofing material because it conveys a naturally rustic and classical look. Slate’s dark grey to black color can complement almost any home’s architecture and style. A slate roof installation can significantly raise your home’s curb appeal and value compared to ordinary asphalt shingles.

Considering or Looking for Reclaimed Slate Tiles?

As the Midwest slate roofing specialists, Cornett Roofing Systems has amassed one of the largest collections of reclaimed slate and salvaged clay tile in the country. Reclaimed slate is roofing material that has often outlasted the building it was installed on and was removed. Most of our slate inventory has more than 50 years of service life left, at a much reduced price versus new slate.
