What You Should Know About Slate Roof Replacement

There are many attractive roof materials to choose from, but if you asked most homeowners in Vancouver to select their favourite, most would vote for slate. Choosing a new roof is no small task, and you need to pick based on your aesthetic preferences, property type, and budget.

At ABC Roofing, we believe that all homeowners should have updated information before they make a decision. What are slate roofs, and what does slate roof replacement involve?

What to Know About Slate Roofs

If you’re looking for a rustic, classic appearance, slate is probably the ideal choice. Known for their beautiful aesthetics, many asphalt shingle manufacturers create shingles to mimic slate.

Slate is a natural material cut into tiles and placed one by one on the roof. There are other materials like metal roofs that can be installed in the form of sheets. Slate is a heavy roof material, and your home or commercial property should be able to hold its weight.

It’s best to get the opinion of roofing pros before investing in a slate roof. If your walls cannot withstand the roof’s weight, the roof may cave in, or the walls may extend outward. Slate doesn’t come with a materials warranty, so the efficiency and durability of the roof will depend on the quality of workmanship. This is why it makes sense to hire a roofing contractor who has experience in slate roof replacement, installation, and repairs.

Why Consider a Slate Roof

Slate is not only stunning to look at but also comes with a host of other benefits.


Slate is a dense material that prevents heat from escaping during winters and doesn’t allow heat during summers. A slate roof can reduce your energy bills during both seasons.


Being a natural material, slate is completely fire-resistant and resistant to high temperatures. Homeowners who live in areas close to wildfires and bushfires may prefer slate roofs.

Extended Lifespan

Slate roofs in Vancouver easily last for 100 or even 150 years with proper care and installation. In terms of longevity, they score brownie points over shingle roofs that last for 20-25 years or even metal roofs that can last for 50 years.

Lastly, even if you get a slate roof replacement, the old tiles can be recycled and used for flooring or paving garden pathways.
