Shingle Roof vs. Slate Roof

Shingle Roof vs. Slate Roof

If it’s time for a new roof for your home, you may find all of the available options a little bit overwhelming! Yes, there is an almost unlimited amount of roofing types, colors, and styles available, but with the help of the Team Roofing design team, you are sure to find the roof that is just perfect for your home!

Two popular options, year after year, are shingle and slate tile roofs. There are pros and cons to each, so let’s take a closer look.

COST – One of the main benefits of shingle roofs is affordability. Slate tile is much more expensive, both for the material itself as well as the cost of installation. If you are looking for a beautiful, new roof that is easy on the budget, consider shingles.

LONGEVITY – When it comes to usable life spans, there are few options that rank higher than slate tiles. Shingles can require replacement following moderate storms, and need replacing more than most other roof types. So in this category, slate tiles are the winner.

APPEARANCE – if you are looking for a roof that complements most styles of homes and comes in a variety of different colors, take a look at shingles. Slate tiles will give your home an architectural flair that works with both contemporary and traditional home styles and is very upscale.

ECO-FRIENDLINESS – Unfortunately, asphalt shingles are not good for the environment due to the production processes used in manufacturing. They are also easily damaged and need replacing more often than other options. On the other hand, slate tile roofs are near the top of the list when it comes to being earth-friendly.
