Maggio Roofing: The Slate Roofing Expert in The District

Monday, July 14th, 2014 by Office


Slate roofing is making its name in the industry as most homeowners are opting for this classy yet durable roofing alternative to shingles. In fact, one of the most trusted roofing contractors in Washington DC, Maggio Roofing, is doing a lot of slate installations, especially in the Capitol area.

One of the reasons why they are now choosing slate is because of the numerous benefits you can get opting for this roofing material. Here are some of them:

    • Longevity – slates are made from tough slivers of metamorphic rocks that can last through decades with minimal maintenance. In fact, 150 years is a reasonable expectation of a slate roof's longevity; that is if the roof is properly installed. That's a big plus in an industry where many roofing systems are lucky to last 20 or 30 years before needing replacement, making this option a great home improvement investment.
    • Fire Resistance – slate tiles are fire-proof, which makes it a great protection for your home against the constant threat of such incident.
    • Appearance – nothing can beat slates roof’s natural beauty. It adds elegance to a traditional type of home for a much enhanced curb appeal.

Given that it’s going to last for more than a century and with less maintenance cost to boot, it is definitely worth its cost and a more practical choice in the long run.

In addition, slate roofs are much harder to install and cannot be trusted to just any roofers out there. If you’re looking for a roofer who has the experience and the expertise when it comes to roofing installations, you should contact the best in the business: Maggio Roofing.
