With there being a near endless list of roofing materials and systems available when it comes to your residential home, it can be hard for you as a first-timer, or even savvy veteran homeowner to make the right choice. All roofing types have their advantages given specific favorable situations. But, if you have a unique set of needs, you might want to pay close attention to a particular roofing option, such as slate roofing!
Slate roofing is not only quickly gaining popularity across the South, but particularly in Deland, Florida as well! It is the pure demonstration of prestige and tradition. The natural appearance of this type of roofing is yet unparalleled. If you are looking to install a slate roof, here are some things you should know first.
People only focus on aesthetics whenever they are thinking of installing a slate roof. But as you can see from the list above, there are numerous other benefits in store for your home!
As Deland’s premier slate roofing company, we offer an extensive list of slate roofing services, including:
There’s no shortage when it comes to slate roofing types. One slate roofing type may work better for other geographical regions and not so well for others, in addition to style preferences. It’s advisable to consult with your roofing contractor on what works best for your needs – which is something one of our slate roofing experts would be glad to assist you with!
The infamous slate roof isn’t popular for nothing. In fact, slate tiles bring in a unique set of qualities that you cannot find in other roofing options. Some of the reasons why you should choose slate roofing include:
This type of slate variety is preferred by many because of its enhanced versatility. Natural slate tiles can be cut into any shape to achieve different attractive effects. Natural slate is the preferred choice by many Deland homeowners, however, natural slate is also one of the most expensive forms of slate, as it is the real thing!
If you are working on a tight budget, then the Chinese and Brazilian slates may be your best bet. However, due to their reduced mineral content, these slate tiles may not perform very well during harsh weather.
Their alluring blue/green tones are what make the Welsh slates stand out. These slates are what you want if you want a distinct appearance on your roof.
Another more economic alternative is imported slates which cost far less than locally sourced slates. Owing to various external factors during transportation, imported slate tiles tend to break. Opt for higher quality standards to avoid any disappointments.
When it comes to slates, it’s not so much about their country of origin but more about the specific quarry they were sourced from. There are Spanish slates that are of substandard quality and others that meet world-class quality thresholds.
Want to get the most out of your slate roofing? Then focus on proper maintenance. Choosing and installing a slate roof is only part of the work. Maintaining it through the years is the other significant bit. Seeing as the slate roof is one of the longest lasting roofing options, to keep it looking clean and fresh, you will have to pay more attention to it.
With the slate roofing options above, it shouldn’t be that hard to point your finger on the slate roofing option that suits you the best.

These are a few of the most frequently asked questions that we get:
Yes! With Deland’s violent storm patterns and yearly inclement weather, the majority of requests that we receive are for storm damage and insurance claims. We provide 100% free estimates and storm damage roofing inspections. We can provide a no-obligation inspection and give you an honest assessment on the health of your roof. Between wind damage from tornadic activity, and hail damage, we have found widespread storm damage across Deland.
Absolutely! One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive from homeowners is “do you offer financing?”. We work with several different financing companies allowing us to offer affordable, low-cost payment plans to our customers. In some cases, you may have the opportunity to defer payments for several months, as well as no money down!
The answer to this question is it truly “depends”. The lifespan that a roofing system will last depends on the roofing material that you have installed on your roof. While an asphalt shingle roof can last 15-20 years, a metal roof can last 40-50 years, while a tile or slate roof can last 50+ years! More than just the roofing material, there are also variables like the grade/quality of material that you used, the craftsmanship of the contractor, as well as any storm activity your roof has been exposed to.
“Should I repair or replace my roof” is one of the most common questions that we get. This answer also depends on each situation, with age being one of the largest factors. A leaking 7-year old metal or shingle roof may have flashing or a section that needs to be repaired. This may be a minor repair. However, a 17-year old leaking shingle roof may require a full replacement if a repair can not made to extend the useful life of your roof.
This depends on the size of your roof, and the roofing material that you decide to go with. In many instances, an asphalt shingle roof can be installed in as little as one day!
