Slate roof tiles are formed from sedentary rock usually found on cliffs and pits in various places worldwide. It is mainly quarried in places like Spain, Brazil, Britain, and Asia. It is also quarried in the U.S. in Vermont, New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Once it is retrieved from the ground, slate roofing in Topeka is used by roofing companies like ours to install on roofs.
This type of roof is one of the most durable roofing types available. And since it is a natural element, it is resistant to some of the most common calamities, such as wind, fire, and hail damage. It is also much more resistant to destructive growths such as moss because it can't penetrate the tiles.
