is a beautiful, long-lasting material that has long been
recognized for its low maintenance and water-proof and fire-proof
qualities, not to mention its elegance.
A slate roof is indeed the crowning touch on many residential
and public buildings throughout the United States.Depending
on the quality, a slate roof can last from 60 to well over
the end of a roof's serviceable life, however, slate maintenance
becomes increasingly necessary. At this point, the slate
shingles - or tiles - are usually still in good shape. It's
the fasteners, or nails, that corrode and fail from years
of exposure to the elements, causing the slate tiles to
fall and break.
When building owners face a tough decision regarding slate
repair, they usually opt to replace the tiles with an inferior
and less beautiful substitute material. Slate restoration
that involves a new slate roof is often cost-prohibitive.
Savers is the only system available designed to preserve
the historic value, protect and virtually renew the life
of your original slate roof at a cost effective price.
Additionally, using the Slate Savers system may qualify
for tax credits! Visit the National Center for Preservation
