Unique Features and Benefits of Slate Roofing

The availability of many roofing styles and designs has made choosing the right one quite challenging. It is imperative, however, to select a durable, visually-appealing and eco-friendly roofing system that can protect your home and everything inside it. West Side Roofing Co., your premier roofing company, talks about the key features of slate roofing and how it can benefit homeowners.

Unique Features and Benefits of Slate Roofing

Appearance

The classy and sophisticated look of slate can draw attention to your roof. It can enhance the beauty of your exterior design. This roofing material is available in different sizes and thicknesses as well as a variety of color choices, including gray, green, purple, red and others.

Life Span

Slate roofs are estimated to last for at least a century. When the roof is properly installed by your trusted roofing contractors, 150 years is a reasonable expectation of the roof's longevity. That's a huge advantage in an industry where many roof systems are fortunate to last 20 to 30 years before requiring replacement.

Fire-Resistant Quality

One of the biggest advantages of slate roofing is that it is completely fire proof. It can prevent fire caused by airborne sparks from fireworks, wildfires or from a nearby house fire. This roofing system improves your home's security and safety.

Eco-Friendly

Roof waste accounts for over 5% of the overall waste sent to landfills across the country each year. Asphalt shingles contribute the most since they require replacement every 20 to 30 years. The longevity of slate tile roofing has a positive impact on the environment. It can also significantly reduce replacement costs.

At West Side Roofing Co., we strive to make things easier for homeowners like you. We have an inventory of different slate colors and sizes to ease the installation and repair process. Our company also offers different roofing products and services. To learn more, call us at (216) 245-1050. We serve different areas in OH, including Parma, Akron and Cleveland.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
