Slate Roofing System

Slate Roofing System Specialists

If your roof has been damaged by severe weather or has experienced deterioration over time, or if you’re in the early stages of planning a new building project, it’s an ideal opportunity to consider installing a slate roof. At XACT HD, we specialize in assisting homeowners and business owners in enhancing the safety, aesthetics, and reliability of their roofing systems. Here are several compelling reasons why a slate roof could be the perfect solution for your requirements.


Stone is renowned for its exceptional strength and durability, making it one of the most resilient materials found on Earth. Slate, the natural material used for roofing tiles, has withstood the test of time, enduring harsh weather conditions for thousands of years. Rain, snow, sleet, drought, heat, and high winds are no match for the remarkable resilience of a slate roof. Unlike many residential and commercial building companies that opt for cheap, substandard asphalt roofs, slate provides unparalleled protection. These flimsy shingles are prone to damage from regular wear and struggle to withstand hurricanes, thunderstorms, freezing temperatures, intense sunlight, and other severe climatic conditions. By choosing slate as your roofing material, you can have peace of mind knowing that the interior of your home or commercial property is well shielded, regardless of the external circumstances.


One of the primary reasons why slate is preferred over other roofing materials is its exceptional aesthetic appeal. The beauty of a slate roof is unparalleled, instantly giving your home or commercial establishment an elegant and distinguished look. If enhancing curb appeal is a top priority for you, then a slate roof is a must-have. With a wide range of colors, textures, and design patterns available today, you can find a slate roof option that perfectly complements your preferred style, whether it’s Old World Romance or Modern Minimalism. Our team of specialists is here to assist you in designing a roof that meets your unique needs and aligns with your personal lifestyle.


Conventional shingles often need repairs or replacement every ten years. While they may be cost-effective initially, the long-term maintenance costs of an asphalt shingle roof can be substantial. Most households or businesses will have to replace their entire roof every 15 to 20 years, further adding to the expenses. In contrast, a well-maintained slate roof can last for centuries. In fact, slate is often referred to as the “forever roof” because property owners are unlikely to ever need another roof installation. Investing in a slate roof provides long-term durability and can save you from the frequent expenses associated with replacing shingles.

Low Maintenance

Slate roofs demand minimal maintenance due to their exceptional durability. Slate is highly resistant to issues such as rot, mold, and insect infestations, which are frequently encountered with other roofing materials. Moreover, slate is non-combustible and highly resistant to fire damage. In essence, slate roofs require less maintenance and attention as they are less prone to problems and complications.
