Trusted, Reliable, Local Roofers for Phoenix!
Slate roof installation in Phoenix is a popular service that Pro-Tec Contracting offers. Slate is a natural stone that is quarried in many parts of the world. It is a very durable roofing material that can last for many years with proper maintenance. Slate roof installation in Phoenix can be a complicated process, so it is important to hire a professional roofing company like Pro-Tec Contracting to do the job.
The first step in installing a slate roof is to remove the old roofing material. This may include shingles, tiles, or whatever else is currently on the roof. Once the old material is removed, the roofing contractor will inspect the roof deck to make sure it is in good condition and can support the weight of the slate tiles. If the roof deck is not in good condition, it may need to be replaced before the slate roof can be installed.
The next step is to install the underlayment. This is a waterproof membrane that is installed between the roof deck and the slate tiles. This is important to prevent water from seeping through the roof and damaging the roof deck.
The slate tiles are then installed over the underlayment. The roofing contractor will carefully measure and cut the tiles to fit the roof. The tiles are then secured to the roof deck with nails or screws.
Once the tiles are in place, the roofing contractor will apply a coat of sealant to the tiles to protect them from the elements.
A slate roof can last for many years with proper maintenance. It is a beautiful and durable roofing material that can add value to your home. If you are considering a slate roof installation in Phoenix, be sure to contact Pro-Tec Contracting for a free estimate.
