Types of Slate Roofs We Install


Natural slate is made from metamorphic rocks that are split into sheets. They are highly durable against many elements, including fire! What sets natural slate apart is its attractive appearance, elevating any home it’s built upon. However, natural slate is heavy and cannot be installed onto any building. We can help you figure out whether or not your building has the structural integrity to support a natural slate roof.


Synthetic slate is made of high-quality plastic and rubber materials that are molded to look like natural slate. Synthetic slate roofs are less expensive than natural slate, as well as lighter-weight, so they can be installed onto any home or property with a pitched roof. Despite not being natural rock, synthetic slate roofs still have all the advantages you would get from a natural slate roof.

Why Choose Slate for Your Roof?

Improve Your Property Value

Slate is considered a premium roofing material that can increase the value of your property, making it an excellent investment. Because slate roofs are also known to be durable, you may even find that a new slate roof will improve your insurance premiums.

Slate Roofs are Weather Resistant

Slate is naturally resistant to extreme weather conditions, including high winds, heavy rain, snow, and even fire. Even though synthetic slate is not made from natural rock, it is still made from materials that make it durable against the elements.

Lower Insurance Premiums

Because slate is known to be such a reliable roofing material, many insurance companies will reduce your rate knowing that you have a slate roof on your home. So although slate roofs are more costly upfront, the savings over time are worth it for many homeowners.

    Total exterior was very professional from the sales man who gave us the quote , to scheduling the roof installation and gutter installation. We are remodeling a 170 year old farmhouse to a bed and breakfast , this house has historic status … More with the state of Wisconsin. The team communicated every step for this install. When on site the workers were very polite, and got right to work and cleaned up very well. We are very pleased with Total exteriors professional work, from top to bottom. I would highly recommend them for your next roof/gutter installation.

    I was very pleased with my experience working with Total Exteriors. Will was awesome and explained everything in great detail and was willing to answer any questions I had at any time. Adam and crew came and knocked my roof out in one day … More , which we are very pleased with ( no more leaks😉). They replaced some siding where we had just fell an old chimney against the house, which looks amazing! They also replaced all of our gutters and reassigned the downspouts to areas that work better for our yard. Adam was also very informative and gave ideas for possible future projects. They made sure everything was done to our satisfaction prior to paying our remaining balance. Friendly staff and awesome work. Thank you Total Exteriors!!😊😊
