MD Slaters has installed hundreds of slate roofs, mostly residential, but also institutional and historic. Slate is aesthetically and architecturally pleasing. It is dense, sturdy rock which makes it a tough and durable choice. In addition to slate having exceptional, long–lasting value, there are many available sizes, textures and colors which will be sure to compliment your building’s features. MD Slaters has slate crews that specialize in slate roofing.
MD Slaters has worked on hundreds of tile roofs, from residences, to churches. An enduring roofing material, tile will typically last well over a century. Tile is manufactured to withstand wind, hail, rain, pests, earthquakes, and fires. Many styles, textures and colors are available to you in either concrete tile or clay tile.
MD Slaters believes in installing the best possible roof. This is no exception when talking about cedar. Today ’s cedar roofing installers will typically cut corners on their installation because the material is so expensive. At MD Slaters, we use a thicker, higher quality cedar to provide a longer lasting roof. We use specifications that exceed the National Cedar Bureau recommendations.
Gutters and Downspouts
Gutters and downspouts are not only highly–functional, but they can also provide distinctive detail to your home. While the primary intent of gutters and downspouts is to move water from the roof, there is no reason why they cannot add prestige and charm to your property. Your gutter system can be as ornate or as understated as you choose, but made with durable materials such as copper, zinc and aluminium.
Maintaining Your Roof
The roof and guttering must be kept in a good condition to enable a property to remain weatherproof. Ineffective covering can lead to expensive work to the underlying timbers and any decorative finishes, which will deteriorate rapidly in damp conditions.
Different roof coverings have varying life spans. The materials used, the quality of the workmanship and the exposure to the elements will all be contributing factors to the effective life of the roof. There are some that last for a hundred years or more, while others deteriorate after 40 years, some are only guaranteed for 20 years reliable cover.
You may only realise that a repair is needed on the roof when ceiling stains are noticed in a room after rainfall. This indicates that water is leaking into the roof space. Always repair damage as soon as possible to stop further rainfall damaging the fabric of the building.
