Types of Slate Roofs We Install



Slate is typically mined in Italy. Because it is a natural rock, the slate roofs can be extremely heavy. Before installing a natural slate roof, you need to ensure your home can handle the weight. If your home can’t hold the weight, your home may be able to be retrofitted with the assistance of a structural engineer.



Synthetic slate tiles are less expensive than natural slate tiles and are also lighter. Shingle manufacturers make these tiles to imitate what a natural slate roof would look like. They’re actually asphalt tiles, and they have the same expected lifespan as an asphalt tile roof.

The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing

When making your decision about the type of roofing you prefer, there will be pros and cons. It’s best to know what to expect.


Pros of Slate Roofing

  • Gorgeous: Nothing says class and style like a slate roof. 
  • Durable: Probably the most durable roofing material money can buy, a new slate roof will last for generations. 
  • Long-lasting: Whether synthetic or natural, a slate roof is built for life. While not always the case, it’s not uncommon to see a stone slate roof over 100 years old.

Cons of Slate Roofing

  • Weight: Stone slate is very heavy and will require your home to be reinforced. 
  • Installation: Natural slate is formed in layers and can easily crack if you step on it the wrong way. It’s important to hire a roofer who can properly install your slate roof with care and precision.

Slate Roof FAQs


What kinds of slate roofs are there?

You can find both natural slate and synthetic slate roofs. Natural slate is a lot heavier and costs more than synthetic slate. Our roofing specialists will be happy to help you decide if slate is the right choice for you!


What is the average lifespan of a slate roof?

Like tile, we’ve seen slate roofs last anywhere between 50-100 years when they are properly installed and well-maintained!


How do you maintain a slate roof?

Have your roof annually inspected. However, slate roofs are generally pretty low-maintenance.

    Not often one five stars a roofing company. Unfortunately most have a sketchy reputation. We have a home that was completed 2 yrs ago but CCA and we noticed a few minor issues that developed after an abnormal cold snap. A few very pleasant … More phone calls later and a crew was at the house. Everything was fixed immediately and the team was upfront and very friendly. Great job! Excellent long-term customer service and support.

    CCA Roofing gave us a bid that was very reasonable and when we met with the owner, Carlos, he was quite professional and knowledgeable. After getting bids with 5 roofing companies, we chose CCA. The company pulled the permit and within … More a week we had a brand new roof that was well constructed and quite nice looking. Our roof was in bad shape and needed several pieces of plywood replaced. The damaged plywood was shown to my husband prior to being removed and replaced. The only down time for the project was waiting for the county to inspect and that wasn't much of a wait. The crew was respectful of the property, worked from 8 am to 6:30 pm on both the tear down day and the day the shingles were put on, and they cleaned up the property when they were finished both days. In this day of shoddy workmanship and fraudulent businesses we were thrilled with CCA Roofing.

    I HIGHLY recommend CCA Contracting if you need your roof replaced. My new roof looks amazing and it was very affordable. Carlos and Janet were true professionals and the crew was extremely respectful.
    I think it's important to leave
