CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, Dec. 13, 2021 / – Among the most durable roofing materials, natural slate is a long-lasting, attractive, and historic option for homeowners. This versatile stone, which is primarily native to the northeastern United States, is celebrated for its fire resistance, extreme resistance to wind and hail, and its 100-year lifespan.

Slate is a type of rock that occurs in certain regions of the world. It is extracted in raw form from quarries and cut and polished into finished building materials (floor tiles, roof tiles, large sheets and more). American shale comes mainly from the east coast, with Virginia and Pennsylvania being the two largest producers. Buckingham slate (from quarries in Buckingham County, Virginia) is sought after by architects and homeowners for its rich charcoal gray color and very low water absorption index (0.4%). Buckingham slate is exported all over the world as a high quality building material.

Slate is a natural type of stone and is available in different earth tones. Gray is the most common color of slate, with shades ranging from deep charcoal black to light bluish gray. Slate is also available in various shades of green, red, purple and black. The color of the slate depends on its geographic region; The presence of iron compounds creates different colors in natural slate.

As a roofing material, slate is ideal for a range of climates. Slate is extremely water resistant; as a pore-free stone, it naturally repels water and does not absorb moisture. Slate not only has excellent water resistance, but also has a natural resistance to wind, hail and extreme weather conditions, making it one of the most weather-resistant materials on the market. Slate also lasts – over a hundred years if properly installed and cared for.


Slate roof tiles can either be nailed or hung on the roof. The method of laying will depend on both the exact type of slate used, its weight, the construction of the house itself, and other factors. A trusted roofer can explain the specific laying method for the type of slate a homeowner will choose and know the best practices for the architectural slant of each home.

Slate’s inherent strength and longevity make it an excellent investment for any homeowner as it adds value to the property, offers unparalleled protection, and won’t fade or stain over time.
