FAQ

Why is slate so much more expensive?

It’s a combination of the materials costing more and the installation being much more difficult. While many companies offer slate tile roof installation, most are not nearly as experienced as Gutterman Services. A poorly installed slate roof is as good as no roof at all, so you really should rely on experts in this case.

Does a slate roof last longer?

Slate lasts up to 5 times longer than typical roof materials! Although the initial cost is more, the long-term value for slate is much better since slate roofs don’t need to be replaced every 20-30 years.

 

How do I know if my home is sturdy enough to support the weight of a slate roof?

We will always ensure your home can handle the weight before installing one for you! A typical home inspector should be able to give you this information too, based on the structural integrity and design of your home.
