Owen Sound is filled with homes dating from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, which represent challenges for roofing companies working on these properties. One of the most beautiful is the home of Ted Horton, local lawyer. The original slate shingles on the home had been in place for 50 years and were showing their age. The Inspire Aledora Slate was chosen as the replacement product because of its durability and the true slate look. The ½” thick profile of this material casts deep shadows which results in a more textured appearance, an excellent contrast to the square-cut stone of the home.
This home presented multiple challenges with its numerous gables, valleys and rounded turret section. Although Inspire Aledora Slate is installed similar to other shingles, close attention has to be paid to spacing and offsets to maintain a consistent appearance.
Inspire Aledora Slate adds beauty and long-term durability to any home with its authentic colours, varied texture combined with a Class 4 Impact Rating and 110 MPH Wind Uplift protection. The product is so durable the manufacturer offers a 50-year Limited Lifetime Warranty.
AM Roofing Solutions has installed the Inspire Aledora Slate on several homes this year and has staff trained by the manufacturer to assure perfect installation.
