Although it seems like a basic feature of your roof, slate shingles have to be handled with care bye professionals.
Slate is a great choice though whether you already have it or want to add it. Of course, your roof needs to form a watertight layer over your home, protecting it from the elements. Yet you can also get your roof to look great and slate tiling does that for you. Slate roofs are particularly strong, aesthetically pleasing and surprisingly environmentally friendly.
What even is slate? Well, slate is essentially made from rock that is taken from the ground. Then from there, it is turned into shingles. Shingles are fireproof, waterproof and durable. In our opinion, they are some of the best looking roofs you can get. They always give a really clean and rustic feel to your property.
The consensus of the roofing market is that they are some of the highest strength roofing materials you can get too.
Slates are normally installed by overlapping one another. The thin slabs overlap to remain watertight and can stay strong for decades.

Slate shingle roofs and tiles are pretty similar. However, slate has some advantages over tile, like it lasts longer and requires less maintenance for example.
You might choose a tiled roof because you can use more colours and get a more bold result. So it depends if aesthetics are more important to you than durability.
Overall, we would say you are going to get more value from a slate roof as opposed to a tile roof, but it depends how much value you place on the look of your roof. Having said that, a slate roof still looks great, will last ages and we think it’s the better option overall.
