It’s exactly as amazing as it sounds. Natural stone from a mountainside or cut out of a canyon into perfect sheets to crown your house with. If you’ve managed to adorn your home with slate roofing, you basically live in a castle if not a small manor now. It glints in the sun with the stone’s natural reflective properties and is as durable as the cliff it was sliced off of. If you’re not willing to pay an arm and a leg for one of the most durable forms of roofing material around, you can always turn to architectural salvage yards to find plenty of slate roofing materials. Much of these materials are still good, as natural rock doesn’t really decay or go out of style. It’s an easy way to recycle beautiful, viable building materials and add undeniable class and prestige to your Mount Pleasant home
Fiber Cement Roofing
We always think it’s interesting to listen to folks talk about something they’re passionate about. We think fiber cement roofing is essentially awe-inspiring. Fiber cement is also known as slate composite tiling, because it’s made to look and act like slate in many ways, bringing the durability and character of the natural stone to your roof, without the weight or price of the natural stone. It’s made of Portland cement and cellulose fiber, but there are newer, fresher versions of the roofing material being made. Now, it’s not hard at all to find a greener, energy efficient form of slate composite roofing that is totally green. It’s inexpensive and it’s weather and fireproof. In fact, we think you’d be hard pressed to find a better roofing material.
As the premier Mount Pleasant roofing contractors, we’ve seen a variety of roofs over the years. We know how the roofing materials advance, and how the pricing for various other forms of roofing change. We’re comfortable guiding you to the right roofing material for your budget, your style and to keep the earth’s health in check. Reach out to us to schedule a consultation today.
