Slate is a popular choice for a roof because of its beauty and longevity. It also requires very little maintenance. However, slate is not a viable option for every home, due to the weight of the materials. This is why Cenvar Roofing opts to use an alternative to traditional slate called faux slate. This material looks like slate and delivers the same benefits of slate, but is much lighter and a viable option for most homes. During our free estimate stage, our qualified roofing contractors will assess your home and let you know if slate is an option for you.
