    I was expecting a drawn-out week long mess in my yard. That was not the case. This company came out and had everything completed in 1 day. I went to work in the morning, and they were done by the time I got home. Communication was outstanding! … More A date was set, and they showed up on time. I have no concerns with this company. Shull roofing is very reasonable on their rates. I will definitely use them again if needed. Thanks to the entire crew for a fantastic job!

    Did a great job, they were fast even with having to replace all my plywood, and did an excellent clean up. Very satisfied, fair price, good to work with.

    The Shull person who came to examine and repair the roofing around my chimney was beyond helpful. He explained what was needed and fixed it. I highly recommend him and the company.

    I contacted another company and could not even get an estimate for four weeks to reshingle my roof. I contacted that company four times! I contacted Shull, and from beginning to end it took less than two weeks.

The Pros and Cons of Slate Roofing

Pros of Synthetic Slate Roofing

Appearance: Slate looks wonderful and is an all-natural material. The dark stone look is a feature of many homes, allowing your home to stand out and look unique.

Energy-Efficient & Environmentally Friendly: Being naturally dark in color, slate absorbs heat when it’s hot outside and releases it when the weather cools off, saving you money on your energy bills and helping to offset the initial cost.

Fire Resistant: Unlike many other roofing materials like asphalt and cedar, slate tiles themselves are completely fireproof, making them the premier fire-resistant option.

Longevity: A slate roof is cost-effective, in that it can last anywhere from 60 to 150 years, provided the initial installation pricing is within your budget.

Cons of Synthetic Slate Roofing

Find a Contractor That Knows Slate: When hiring a contractor, Be sure to get references and ask about a contractor’s experience with slate roofs. Unfortunately, many try to install them with limited knowledge due to the high-profit margins.

Fragile: Beware of walking around on slate roofs, slate is extremely fragile and one misstep can cause thousands of dollars of damage in broken tiles!

Weight: Because slate roofing tiles can weigh over 1,000 pounds per square, you’ll need to ensure your home or business structure is sound before installing them.
