Elegance & Durability You Can Count On
Slate tiles have been used on upscale homes in the Pacific Northwest for over a hundred years. This elegant and natural stone is one of the longest lasting shingles on the market and can instantly add significant value to your home. While slate roofing is one of the more expensive options for roofing material, it is one of the most durable. In fact, some slate roofs have lasted for more than 150 years when cared for properly.

Choosing the Right Roof Material
If you are considering a slate roof, you are choosing a roof that is as beautiful and classic as it is durable. Slate roofing comes in a variety of natural colors and textures, including gray, green, purple, black, and even red. Some tiles can even come with a blend of colors to enhance the look of any home.
At Stevenson Roofing, our roof experts will come out to your home and perform a vigorous inspection of your home’s structure and your existing roof. During our inspection, we’ll be able to determine variables like rot and load capacity which is critical to determining if your roof deck can support the weight of slate tiles. Since slate roofing tiles are extremely heavy, your roof deck may need to be reinforced to support the weight.
When choosing a slate roof, experience matters. A well-installed slate roof will last for more than a century; however, a poorly installed slate roof could be dangerous. Inexperienced roofing contractors may not perform such in-depth inspections, putting you and your home at risk.
