Slate roofing will last for generations. But there are some items you need to consider before switching to a slate roof.
Shingles are exposed to the elements 24/7. As such, they can fall prey to a variety of issues. One such problem is shingle cupping. This particular issue occurs on both organic-mat and fiberglass-mat asphalt roof shingles. That being said, they are more common on an organic mat. It’s important to diagnose the cause of early roof wear and tear.
First-timers are often caught off-guard by how challenging it can be to schedule a roof repair, replacement or maintenance visit. Most homeowners set appointments immediately after some bad weather or as part of their annual list of spring cleaning tasks. Experienced customers, however, know better than to jump on the bandwagon and call up the roofers during these peak seasons.
