Not only is this type of roofing gorgeous, but it is also perfectly durable for the conditions in the Richmond area.

That is only one of the advantages of choosing a Richmond roofer your slate roofing needs. There are other options for your Richmond property including metal roofing, shingle roofing and all these depend on whether a number of factors including whether you have a flat roof, low slope roof or are looking for commercial or residential roofing.
ALL ABOUT SLATE
It was mentioned before that slate is very long-lasting and is very sturdy. Many manufacturers will offer up to fifty years of warranty on your roofing; this alone says a lot. Not only that, but slate roofing will never rot the way wood does, nor rust like metal roofing can. You can forget about insect damage too. Slate is very environmentally friendly, for two simple reasons; the materials used are earth minerals which can be 100% recycled when removed; and also, because their heavy thermal mass acts as heat insulation for your Richmond home and can provide energy efficiency when regulating indoor temperatures. Lastly, other benefits of slate roofing are the fact that, since they are sturdy and durable, they need almost no roofing maintenance, so roof repair costs are kept to a minimum.
