Slate roofing has been around for hundreds of years. It#s considered the the highest quality and longest lasting roof. Slate roofs are also the most beautiful and expensive roofs to install and repair. Butler & James roofing has installed and repaired hundreds of slate and clay tile roofs in Greater Boston and north shore. Our installers/technicians are specially trained to work on slate roofs.
Appearance - Slate roofs are beautiful. Natural stone gives makes any home look spectacular. Stone is classy and elegant appearance. Additionally, slate roof tiles come in a multitude of shapes, shadings, colors, thickness, and can be mixed and matched.
Longevity - Slate tile roofs, if maintained properly can last over 100 years.
Fire Resistance - Slate tile roofs are 100% fire resistant. That's a big advantage when it comes to preventing fires caused by air borne sparks from fireworks, wildfires, or from adjacent house fires.
Environmentally Friendly - Sadly, roofing materials account for over 5% of all landfill waste. Since non-slate roofs are replaced 10-15 years that number continues to grow. Slate roofs do not need to be replaced as often and thus do not contribute to environmental waste.
