Why Slate?
The choice to install a slate roof is an easy one, because they are as beautiful as they are long lasting. A high quality slate roof – with proper underlayment and copper flashing – is permanent, and requires only minor upkeep and maintenance.
Why are the flashing and underlayment so important?
Think of flashing and underlayment as the roof’s foundation. Whether the roof is slate, Spanish clay tile, or sheetmetal, the flashing and underlayment are the keys to the longevity of your roofing system. Because they are generally found in the areas that receive the largest amounts of water, it is very important that these materials be of the highest quality and that the installation be done correctly.
