Slate Roofing Services Available

NYC General Pro Roofing provides clients throughout many parts of New York, such as Long Island and Brooklyn, with a wide variety of residential roofing services, which includes the professional installation of slate roofing. The slate tile is a popular roofing tile with a reputation for longevity and comes with an air of prestige. If properly installed, an entire soft slate roof can last up to 50 years before needing to be replaced. And although individual tiles may crack or split, the slate roof as a whole is quite durable. If hard slate is used, then that number increases to 75-125 years. As your roofing services experts, we can enhance the beauty of your Long Island home with our slate roofing.

What is Slate?

Slate is a metamorphic rock with relatively weak bonds between layers. This causes premature splitting. However, much of the durability of the tile comes down to the craftsmanship of the work. We provide expert quality work when it comes to our slate roofing services, as well as other residential roofing and home improvement services.

Slate Roof Design & Styles

Here are some common designs and tyles for a slate roof.

Standard Slate Roof

With a standard slate roof, the shingles are flat, smooth, and uniform in color and appearance. This offers a clean and elegant look that complements modern building and architecture.

Textural Slate Roof

A textural slate roof has the look of the classic slate roof, with a rough, textured, and natural appearance. Due to the texture, there is an enhancement with the depth and visual interest of the shingles. Textural slate provides the best grip of any slate surface, making roof maintenance easier than other types of slate roofing.

Multicolored (Blended) Slate Roof

A multicolored slate roof mixes various colors to create a unique and aesthetically pleasing look. Shades of gray, black, purple, and green combine to form a wonderful looking shade. Multicolored slate roofs have a striking, but natural and organic look that will enhance the beauty of any home.
