Slate is one of the most durable and long-lasting roofing materials available. Despite its toughness, slate roofing can get damaged. If you have a problem, you can trust LaBrusciano Roofing & Exteriors to handle your slate roof repair.
How a Slate Roof Can Get Damaged
Severe weather is one of the most common causes of roof damage. Strong winds can cause slate tiles to come loose, or even tear them off completely. If that happens, water can get into spaces underneath the roof and cause supporting structures to rot. Moisture can also damage insulation and leak into the attic.
A storm can even cause slate tiles to break. Fierce winds can hurl tree branches and other objects at a roof and damage shingles.
Sometimes damage occurs gradually as slate wears out over a period of several years or decades. Slate is a natural material that consists of layers that can separate over time. If the roof isn’t repaired, slate tiles can crack or break, which can result in other, more serious problems.
Have a Qualified Professional Inspect Your Slate Roof
If you suspect that there’s a problem with your slate roof, have it inspected right away. Make sure that you hire a well-trained roofing contractor. Many companies don’t handle slate roofs, but LaBrusciano Roofing & Exteriors does.
A member of our team will conduct a thorough inspection and figure out how serious the problem is. If it’s a minor issue, we might be able to simply reattach one or more shingles. If a large section is damaged, or if water has gotten under the slate tiles, we’ll have to make more extensive repairs. That can be stressful and costly, but not fully addressing an issue will only lead to more problems (and more repair bills) down the road.
