St. Louis Slate Roofing Services
Keeping your slate roof in top shape.
The roof is the crowning glory of any building, pulling the design together in terms of function and aesthetics. But since you are in the St. Louis area, you know your roof takes a beating. From hail and high winds to snow and ice, St. Louis buildings experience it all—sometimes in a single day. Luckily, you have IES Construction & Roofing to turn to for your slate roofing needs.
Common Slate Roof Problems
Slate roofs are among the most durable on the market, whether they are 100% natural or composite. Despite this, they do run into problems from time to time. Some common issues to encounter with slate roofs include:
- Heavy Weight: Slate roofs can weigh as much as 800 pounds per square foot, which places significant stress on the supporting structures.
- Complex Installation: If you are looking to switch to a slate roof or add one to your new construction, understand that the installation process is complex and often lengthy.
- Difficulty Matching: If you have natural slate tiles, it can be difficult to replace them when they become damaged, as finding a color and pattern match can be all but impossible.
- Fragility: Slate tiles are considered highly durable against the elements, but when it comes to people working on the roof, they are very fragile.
- Limited Installers: Because they are more expensive than most other types of roofing, slate roofs aren’t in high demand, and many installers have no experience with them.
