Slate Roofing offers superior durability and can provide a a distinctive curb appeal to your home or business. Slate has been used as a roofing material for centuries for its beauty and a longevity that is unmatched by other roofing materials.

Slate roofing, however, can be quite costly, so it is important to understand the pros and cons of installing slate tile roofing.

 

Advantages of Slate Tile Roofing

  • Slate tile roofing comes in many color options including green, gray, black, purple and red that do not fade.
  • A slate tile roof will last over 100 years, an ideal solution for someone that plans to never sell their home.
  • Because state tile is natural stone, it is more durable than man-made materials, and its high density means that it is waterproof and will not absorb water.
  • Slate tile roofs are completely non-combustible and will protect a home from fire
  • Slate tile roofing is highly resistant to temperature fluctuations and harsh weather conditions and is not affected by fungus or mold.
  • Slate tile roofing is generally maintenance free
  • Slate tile roofing greatly increases the resale value of a home and is attractive to potential buyers

 

Disadvantages of Slate Tile Roofing

  • Slate tiles can be fragile and may break if stepped on. You should not walk on a slate roof.
  • Slate tile roofing is very heavy and the structure of your building must be able to sustain between 800 and 1500 pounds per square foot.
  • Installation of a slate tile roof is complicated and poor installation can lead to leakage and major roof problems. Installation requires special training and experience.

What Our Clients Say

The owner showed up as agreed. We discussed our leak and how best to repair it. It was an easy fix done the same day. Fair cost for the trip out and repair. He also evaluated the roof and made a few suggestions if we want to do preventive repairs. Very nice, personable and reasonable.

They did an excellent job. The team started early in the morning and were working until dusk to complete their work. The owner of the company and his team are very friendly and hard workers. I would definitely recommend them to you.

Always polite, professional and extremely knowledgeable! We had an emergency situation and Fernando did not hesitate to get started helping us. He even drove from Gresham to Beaverton in the snow/ice storm just to make his first appointment. There aren't enough words to express the gratitude my husband and I have Fernando and his crew.

He came quickly within a few days of my call. He was honest about what needed to be done and how we could plan for contingencies. He gave me a solid easy to understand estimate. He took care of getting me on the schedule within a month (other companies were months out). He is a contractor as well as a roofer and believe me that could save you tons of $$ as houses hide damage that you can't see until the roof is off and you want the same crew who is already there to be able to keep on working rather than having to stop and start again finding a licensed contractor. He was great about not hiding costs and what he quoted was what i paid. He brought a trailer and was pretty good about cleanup. He went over my property with a magnet rake and there was minimal mess left over when he was done. Fernando was great! Personable, flexible easy to talk to and not talking down to me or trying to sell me crap I didn't need. I am proud to recommend Forest Roofing. If you are worried about your roof there is no one better to provide class A service.

Excellent. Crew was on time and very efficient. They were always very courteous and went out of their way to accommodate. Fernando was always very professional and did what he said he was going to do.

Craig Allen

Fernando is a delight to work with. He he thorough and explained to us all the problem areas on our roof. One of the many things we appreciate about Fernando is that he took pictures of problem areas on the roof so we could see for ourselves that the tiles were degrading, we had a small hole in the roof, missing tiles, etc. He also noticed our neighbor's tree was splitting from the top down and I was able to show her the picture warning her of a disaster about to fall on her house (it fell the following day through her roof). Fernando truly cares about his customers and makes sure they receive the best quality work at a fair price. I cannot say enough good things about this man. He has integrity, he's an honest man, and he has been a true blessing to us.

Our situation was considered an emergency and he did not hesitate to get to work quickly to make sure we were dry, and safe. We are beyond grateful for what Fernando and his crew at Forest Roofing did for our family!

Forest Roofing team was very professional and guided us step-by-step from day one. The project took about three days as they had mentioned from the time of the estimates.

On the first day, they took out the old roof and tape the water resistant material to the woods to ensure protection of the existing base. They also had all supplies and materials ready and did daily clean up of hazardous materials. On the second day, Forest Roofing team began installing the new roof and checked old vents on top of my house. Finally on the third day, the team finished the second part of the roof and replaced old vents with new ones. At the end, I was able to inspect the project with the team manager for feedback and/or recommendations. The roof installation was pristine and fit to meet the highest roofing standards in the state. There were no over costs or any missing items/details. Everything went according to plan from the beginning and now I have the most amazing roof in the neighborhood!

I also look forward to call them in 30 years for a new one.
