If you’re considering replacing or recycling slate or tile there are a couple of things you should know. First, let us assess your roof to determine whether it’s time for replacement or if the roof is a good candidate for repair/restoration. Many slate and tile roofs can be expected to last 100 years, so a repair may be all you need. Occasionally, slate roofs fall into a state of disrepair and it doesn’t make economic sense to restore them. Only in this instance is recycling slate or tile your next best option.
At HKC Roofing, we’re advocates for recycling old and unused building materials, especially roofing materials. Slate and tile roofs are critical to maintaining the historic architecture in our local communities. Without good quality recycled material, it’s difficult to make the necessary repairs that many of these old roofs require. If you’re interested in recycling slate, email us through our contact link and attach pictures of your roof. One of our slate roofing professionals will give you a call to review your material and whether it can be recycled. In most cases, customers receive compensation for their recycled materials.
