Some of Atlanta’s finest homes have slate roofs. Slate is a very durable roofing material offering a natural look. Slate roofs can be laid out in a variety of patterns to create a look unique to your home.
What Is Slate Roofing, and Where Does Slate Come From?
A great roofing material, slate is a fine-grained sedimentary rock derived from clay or volcanic ash. Slate is made of natural stone quarried from the Northeast United States, Canada, Virginia, Wales, Spain, China, South Africa, and other parts of the world.
For over 150 years Buckingham County Virginia has been the location where some most famous slate is quarried. Known as “Buckingham-Virginia slate,” KTM’s master roofers are often called upon for the installation of this slate on metro Atlanta homes. Buckingham-Virginia slate is renowned because it has a reputation for not showing signs of fading or decay and is a favorite of architects because of its assurance the building will receive a lifetime of roof protection while enhancing the building’s beauty.
It is important to choose the best Atlanta roofing contractor to install your slate roof. We have extensive experience with slate roofing materials and installation at KTM Roofing. We use professional crews and the highest quality materials, and we have been in the roofing business for more than 25 years.
Wood roofs have a natural look and can be found on some of Atlanta’s most beautiful homes. Due to variations in the color, width and thickness of wood shakes, no two shake roofs are alike. At KTM Roofing, we offer wood shakes in cedar, pine and cypress at an affordable price.
What is the Difference between Wood Shakes and Wood Shingles?
When most people think of wood shingles, they are actually visualizing wood shakes. Shakes are typically split on one or both sides, creating a grooved texture. Shakes are thicker than shingles, and most shakes are made from cedar, but can also be made of red wood, pine and pressure treated wood that can last up to 50 years. In contrast, shingles are sawn on both sides and are thinner at the butt than shakes. Most shingles are composed of two or more materials.
