TEC: The Lancaster Slate Roof Leader | The Exterior Company

Are you looking to install a new roof on a brand-new home or commercial structure? Do you need to replace an aging or significantly damaged roofing system? If so, a slate roof deserves careful consideration. Slate is a fine-grained metamorphic rock that can be shaped into durable roofing shingles or tiles. It’s also possible to create a variety of slate roof styles, colors and textures.

Lancaster-based The Exterior Company can install a beautiful slate roof on your home or business that will boost its curb appeal — and last a long time.

What Are the Benefits of a Slate Roof?

Because slate is essentially rock, a slate roof can last as long as 75 to 100 years. You may never need to replace your roof again! The availability of custom patterns, textures and colors also enables you to maximize the roof’s aesthetic appeal.

Slate roofs are strong — they can resist winds of up to 130 mph, which dramatically reduces the likelihood of significant storm damage. Slate reflects heat and helps to insulate your building, which can lower your energy costs. And slate is also noncombustible and fireproof, which is a vital safety consideration.


TEC Can Install Your Slate Roof

Because slate is a heavy roofing material, your home or business may require some additional preparation to ensure it can accommodate the extra weight. As experienced slate roofing contractors, TEC will perform a comprehensive inspection and make any structural enhancements if needed. We’ll then conduct a fast, flawless installation while minimizing disruptions to your lifestyle or business processes.

We’ll make sure you’re completely satisfied with the job — you’ll appreciate our customer-focused approach from start to finish.

We’re Also Experts at Slate Roof Repairs

Because of their solid construction, slate roofs do not often require maintenance or repair work. However, as we are licensed, bonded and insured slate roofing contractors, you can count on TEC to handle any repair task that might arise. In many cases, the job will only require sliding out and replacing a damaged shingle or tile. We can also perform periodic inspections to verify the roof’s structural integrity and detect potential signs of trouble.
