How to Use Engineered Slate Roofing for Stylish Performance in a Green Home
Natural slate has been a favorite roofing material. It still adorns many historic buildings in Europe and the U.S., providing service in excess of 100 years in many cases. Building with natural slate is often a costly undertaking. It’s typically expensive on a square footage basis, and also requires the roof structure to be designed to handle the weight of slate. Fortunately engineered slate provides a cost-effective and attractive alternative to natural slate.
