Cedar shake roofs are attractive and add significant prestige and value to your home, but they are also quite expensive and have limitations. They are not particularly long-lived, and they are a poor choice in areas that get lots of moisture or where wildfires are a danger. Still, they are among the most attractive of all roofing materials, which makes them a popular choice for luxury homes and builders in Toronto.
A slate roof is perhaps the most beautiful roofing material there is—a choice for the homeowner who will accept only the finest. There are slate roofs hundreds of years old that are still functioning. True slate roofing is just as it sounds: authentic, thin sheets of real stone. Because slate tends to cleave off in thin sheets, it is easy to quarry, making it ideal for roofing. But installing slate is a highly specialized skill, and qualified installers can be hard to find. The Roofers employ seasoned slate roofing installers that can carry out your next roofing project.
Synthetic slate or synthetic cedar shake roofs are a surprisingly convincing stand-in for natural slate or cedar, but this material is constructed from engineered polymers combined with recycled plastic and rubber – depending on the manufacturer you choose. From the ground, it can be virtually impossible to distinguish this engineered roofing from natural slate or aged cedar shakes.
