Historic homes, churches, and classic modern designs benefit from the beauty and protection of a slate tile roof in Shelbyville, IN. These carefully laid roofs require special skills to install and maintain or repair, even to walk on. With proper care, they can last for 100 to 200 years, depending on the type of slate used. Modern, synthetic slate is also available to keep the tradition going.
Slate roofing requires special tools and techniques, especially for repairs when damaged tiles must be removed and replaced with new ones. Skilled roofers can repurpose tiles for effective repairs as well. When working on century-old homes or more, care for the supporting beams is required as well.
