If you love the look of an old fashioned slate roof, you may be considering using slate roofing materials on your home. A slate roof wears well and looks wonderful for years after it is installed. However, slate roofing materials can be challenging to work with and are a bit more expensive than most other roofing materials.
Before you decide to use slate roofing materials on your house, you should take a look at your roof. A roof with several levels or a very steep slant can be a bit tricky to re-roof no matter what material you use. When you are using slate, a tricky roof can be even more challenging to work with.
