What Are Slate Tiles?
Beyond being luxuriously beautiful, slate tiles are thin sheets of slate rock that’s quarried in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic U.S. One of the longest-lasting materials around, plenty of houses that were built up to 100 years ago still have their original slate roofs. Slate also offers a great style to change things up from typical shingles.

Slate is a type of rock that’s existed for millions of years, so it’s safe to say that it makes for long-lasting roofing material. If you opt for slate roofing, you can expect it to last anywhere from 75 to 100 years when installed properly.
Slate roofing is easy to customize because it’s available in various patterns, textures, and colors. Choose from a standard pattern or random width style; smooth or rough texture; and muted colors like grays and blacks or vibrant colors like greens, purples, and reds.
