Best Grand Rapids’ Slate Roofing Contractor

Slate roofing has been used on buildings for centuries, and there are only a few other roofing materials that can match the durability, beauty, and sturdiness of slate roofing. A slate roof, when installed and cared for, lasts for a century and even longer. But even the indestructible slate roofing will age, leak, and may even have to be replaced.

When you need a reliable slate roofing contractor in Grand Rapids, MI, you can rely on Great Lakes Building Concepts. For more than a decade, we have been helping homeowners in the area get back safety and comfort of their homes by offering reliable and quality slate roofing repair and replacement services. We go the extra mile to inspect the roof thoroughly before recommending any repair or replacement solution and never settling for anything less than complete satisfaction.

Common Repairs for Slate Roofs

Slate roofs are strong and provide great design choices to homeowners in Grand Rapids. If you plan on living in the same house for a long time, a slate roof offers unmatched durability and performance. But slate is a difficult material to work with and should only be handled by professionals. It is best to work with a professional for repairs minor and major. Our team at Great Lakes Building Concepts take the time to perform a thorough inspection if you are experiencing any of the following signs of slate roof damage –

  • Small pieces of slate cracking or chipping away

  • There are large gaps between the slate tiles

  • Slate tiles look uneven when you look up from the ground

  • There are leaks near the ceilings, walls, or the floors

You might be tempted to put off repairs till they become absolutely necessary. But small issues can quickly become major issues quickly. Even a small lead will cause extensive damage to your home. It is better and far cheaper to get repairs done right now than wait. The good news is our roofers have years of hands-on experience repairing all types of slate roofs, including composite and natural slate. We invest in considerable resources to ensure our roofers are up to date with the best techniques and trends in the industry.

Trusted Slate Roof Replacement

While we can repair most of the slate roof problems, sometimes, the roof may be beyond repairable. In that case, it is best to opt for replacement rather than spend more money on repairs that won’t last long. We work closely with our customers to ensure the new slate roof we install is strong and sturdy. We take great care in removing the entire slate roof or the damaged parts to ensure the undamaged ones remain intact. We buy replacement slates directly from the manufacturers and try our best to match the slate as closely as possible. Our experienced slate roofers ensure every detail of your slate roof is addressed, and every fitting, fixture, and even nail come together to create a durable roof that can withstand the harshest weather.

We would highly recommend Great Lakes BC. Very thorough inspection and very informative. There was no moment that we felt like we didn't know what was going on. Skilled, experienced roofers so I have no doubt that the roof will be watertight for years to come. They also did a great job of cleaning up at the end of the project!
