A well-constructed slate or flat tile metal roofing system should last more than 50 years. These products need very little maintenance, and because they are fireproof, they may save you money on insurance.
The material for your flat tile metal roofing can weigh between 800 and 1,600 pounds per square foot installed. Slate can weigh anywhere from 500 to 3,600 pounds per square foot depending on the thickness. In comparison, most asphalt shingles found on homes weigh between 200 and 300 pounds per square foot. Therefore, before Neth & Son will install a slate or flat tile metal roofing system, your building frame must be inspected and approved to withstand the heavy load. Our roofing contractors will then provide you with roofing estimates.
