Upgrading Your Home With Slate Roofing
Often, when we install a slate roofing system, we’re upgrading the home from another roofing material, such as asphalt shingles, metal panels, or cedar shake. Our roofing team has extensive experience planning and carrying out such transitions. We have skilled inspectors who can evaluate your roof to ensure that it can withstand the added weight of slate, and in cases where it cannot, our experts can advise you on the necessary upgrades, which we can perform as part of the installation process.
Signs You Need to Repair or Replace a Slate Roof
Homeowners invest in slate roofing because it can last 100 years or more and is impervious to most damage, but wear and tear will still occur over time. Ultraviolet radiation can drain the color from slate over the years. As slate becomes brittle with age, rain can eventually infiltrate through imperfections in the stone. High winds can lift slate causing it to shift or even crack. A bad hail storm can damage slate. Your roof may also experience weakened fasteners and flashing over time. We recommend having your slate roof inspected annually and performing any preventative repairs as needed. You should also keep an eye on your roof and call us immediately if you notice a leak, cracks, discoloration, or any other kind of damage.
Trusted Roof Inspection Services
Our roof inspectors are highly skilled and have extensive experience assessing slate roofing. We’re available for annual inspections and to advise you on preventative maintenance. You can also call us if you’re considering a roof replacement. We’ll perform a comprehensive inspection and give you our professional recommendation on whether it’s better to reroof or repair your existing roof.
When to Replace Your Slate Roof
While routine maintenance and minor repair costs are generally low, extensive slate roofing repairs can be quite expensive. Depending on the age of the roof and the extent of the repairs, it may be better to replace your current roof rather than attempt to salvage it. You can have your roof pressure washed in order to restore its appearance, but be mindful that it won’t be possible to return color that has faded over time. Damaged and missing shingles are the leading reason why slate roofs need to be replaced. Patch jobs are possible in some cases but can lead to an aesthetic that isn’t uniform.
The Benefits of a New Slate Roof
There are many reasons to consider new slate roofing, and one of them is that if you install a new slate roof now, you’ll probably never have to think about reroofing again unless you move. A new slate roof will add stunning curb appeal. These roofs are highly energy efficient. They’re also environmentally friendly, and your new roof will protect your home from the elements for many years to come.
WHY CHOOSE PJ FITZPATRICK
We vow to never use cheaper materials, hurry through an installation, or overlook local code restrictions.

Our roofing expertise isn’t limited to slate roofing. We also install metal roofing and asphalt roofing, including architectural shingles. Architectural—also known as dimensional or laminated—shingles have a greater thickness not only for better durability but enhanced aesthetic appeal. Within that sphere, you also have options like luxury shingles, which are available in a wider range of colors and textures, and cool roof shingles, which are an energy-efficient option for homes that get substantial sunlight.
