Paradigm: Your Tile & Slate Roofing Specialists
Tile and slate roofs can give a home an accent and a look like no other material available in today’s market. They are durable with life spans ranging from 50-100 years and possibly longer.
Because of their density and composite, tile and slate roofing provides a home with another layer of insulation. You can expect both of these materials to cost higher than a traditional asphalt roofing system, but serving as better insulating properties, tile and slate, from a long-term perspective, is considered a more energy-efficient material choice. Tile roofing systems and some slate systems allow air circulation under the application, reducing heat transfer to attics during fires.
Slate roofs also can add to construction cost for an underlying roof section because of the fact that it can support the additional weight. Slate roofs can weigh as much as 550 pounds per square. Some roofing manufacturers have come up with solutions to these issues by developing a man-made material that resembles slate with a 50-year warranty. They have exceptional beauty and provide the durability similar to traditional slate.
