Slate Roof Shingles and Clay Roof Shingles

Serving Vancouver WA and Portland OR


Slate Roof Shingles and Clay Roof Shingles By Legit Roofing - Roofing Contractors serving Portland OR and Vancouver WAHistorical homes and public buildings are frequently topped with gently colored natural slate tiles or warm clay tiles that have lasted hundreds of years. Nothing beats the durability of actual stone tiles or clay tiles on the roof, but these materials are heavy, more expensive, and prone to cracking and flaking as the years go by.

The modern era and roofing technology have created a way to get that beautiful natural stone or clay look without the associated problems: slate roof shingles and clay roof shingles.

Modern Roof Shingles Explained

Natural stone or fired clay is still an option for people who want the real thing. However, manufactured shingles are an excellent option for people who desire the look without the high price or installation difficulties.

These are more than just architectural shingles with shading and colors that mimic slate or clay. These things have three-dimensional characteristics that make them look like natural materials. Some include edges to each shingle that look chipped or flaked off. Others are actually curved to mimic a classic tile look.

Why Choose Manufactured Roof Shingles Over Natural Stone or Clay?

Natural roofs are expensive, difficult to install, and can be challenging to repair due to the natural variations in the stone and clay when it comes to finding replacement tiles. Of course, they are also quite heavy and put a lot of pressure on the roof support structure.

Manufactured slate roof shingles and clay roof shingles may not last hundreds of years, but they do provide protection for home and family in a budget-friendly manner.
