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.

Are you ready for a roof of the highest quality workmanship and at a fair price? We’re here to answer all your questions about our slate roofing options. Call CCA Roofing today to schedule your free estimate!

    CARLOS and the entire team of CCA Contracting is AMAZING. They did my roof 10/2021 and when IAN came I didn't loose one shingle and all of the houses around me including new construction most had roof damage. I recommend them to all … More of my friends, co-workers, and family. Great quality workmanship and a Great price. Amazing Service...
    Thank you again Carlos...

    I don’t often go out of my way to leave a review for a business, but for CCA roofing I will! In January our home was hit with a freak tornado, causing considerable roof damage. Carlos and staff was super easy to work with, getting my … More permit very quickly and without pressure, waited until we we clear of obstacles to do the install. They were here for tear off and done with install in just a few days, done!
    We had one leak after a large storm, which CCA immediately came out for and shored up. Months later after Ian caused some damage, CCA again very quickly came out and restored our roof with matching shingles.
    These guys are top notch. I can’t recommend them enough.

    We purchased our home a few months ago. It wasn’t the nicest one on the street and it definitely needed some TLC. Also, our home insurance provider was leaving Florida and it was difficult to find a new one with the current roof. We contacted … More Carlos with CCA .He put us at ease and provided us different financing/ payment options. He explained the difference and durability of roof shingles along with a variety of colors to choose from. They also provide samples, if needed. But, if you’re like me and you NEED to see your own home with the different shingle options before making such a big decision. Upload a picture on their webpage and add the shingles you like and “voila!”.
    The roofers were fast and efficient. They also did an amazing job cleaning the debris.
    The ugly duckling of the street is no more ! Our neighbors now turn for a second look and smile.
    We highly recommend Carlos and his team at CCA for your roof project.
    Thank you Carlos!
