The Leader in Slate Roofing
Slate is a roofing material made from natural stone and known for its durability and unique look. In addition to being water repellant and fireproof, slate is also highly resistant to wind and hail making it an extremely long-lasting option for homeowners. Slate roofs have a lifespan up to 200 years, much longer than the average 15-35-year lifespan of traditional roofing materials.
Because slate roofs don’t show signs of fading or decay, they are often a favorite option among architects and homeowners due to the combination of long-lasting roof protection and enhanced beauty. Slate roofs can look beautiful on any style home and can be laid in a variety of patterns to complement the particular aesthetic of a home.
Depending on the structure of your roof, synthetic slate roofing may be a good option — especially if your roof isn’t designed to handle the weight of slate. Synthetic slate offers the same quality look of slate but is lighter weight and lower maintenance. Many homeowners like the environmentally-friendly aspect of synthetic slate roofing as well since some material is made from some or all recycled materials and all types can be recycled at the end of a roof’s lifespan.
At Cross Timbers Roofing we have the expertise to install a beautiful slate or synthetic slate roof. Contact us today to see some slate roofing projects in our portfolio and get an estimate for your home.

Slate Roof Repairs
When slate roofs are properly repaired, they can continue to look great and function for many years to come. Cross Timbers Roofing offers roof repairs for slate roofing and flashing in order to extend the life of your roof. Sometimes pieces of slate can become cracked and broken. In these cases, the affected area needs to be repaired immediately to avoid impacting the overall integrity of the roof. We can replace individual slates that are damaged and take the time to find an appropriately matched slate so that the repairs blend well with the existing roof.
Slate Roof Replacement
We talk a lot about the durability of slate and its incredibly long lifespan. While this is an undisputable benefit of slate roofs, it’s important to remember that the rest of the roof, particularly the flashing, will not last that long. Because of this, there are roof maintenance tasks that are needed to ensure the efficiency of a roof – even one with slate material. If a slate roof is nearing the end of its life or you’re dealing with lots of other roof issues, it may be time to consider a replacement. We have worked with many homeowners to determine the best replacement option for their home and budget. Choices include replacing the roof with a new slate roof, using synthetic slate, or another material altogether.
No matter what, there are options available and Cross Timbers Roofing is happy to discuss them with you!
