Sharp Increase in New Sydney Homes Being Built with Slate Roofing

Sydney, Australia – Market analysts highlighted new 2017 design trends for homes in the Sydney metropolitan area, and recent reports reveal interesting new facts. Homeowners in Sydney are more frequently opting for slate roofing, which is often considered by industry experts to be one of the best materials for roof tiling. Using slate roofing tile offers tangible benefits to homeowners looking for something functional and beautiful. Slate tiling has been used for centuries and is prized for its natural beauty, longevity, and resilience under harsh environmental conditions.

“You’re going to see a lot of new homes in Sydney with slate roofing in 2017 and beyond,” speculates Damian Hand, a roofing specialist from Mr Shingles, “It’s beautiful, functional, and flattering with most house designs.” Damian’s company, Mr Shingles, offers roofing services to homeowners and businesses in the area, allowing them to choose from a variety of different natural stone tiles. According to Damian and other industry experts, next-generation design trends will emphasize quaint elegance, which is exemplified clearly in slate’s stunning and earthy appearance. Customers working with Damian’s company can choose slates of different hues and patterning, ranging from the widely-used grey and green to red and patterned tiles.

Damian comments further on the design trend, “You’d be surprised to find out that many A-list celebrities living in the country are choosing slate for their roofing material.”

Mr Shingles puts emphasis on roofing designs that look naturally beautiful that will stand the test of time. Slate roofing has been known to last centuries if maintained properly, and homeowners are certainly attracted to having a roof that will last at least 100 years or more. Since slate does not fade from exposure to the sun or erode easily from environmental conditions, it is the natural choice of homeowners conscious of getting the best value out of long-term investments.

A “slate boom” previously occurred in the latter half of the 19th century as told by historians. At the end of the 1800s until World War I, it was common to see slate roofing on many homes and buildings in many countries around the world. A gradual decline in the slate mining industry led to the popularity of other materials, but according to market analysts and home design specialists, slate has a strong future ahead as consumers become more educated about the long-term value of this robust roofing material. Because Sydney and Australia in general has harsh weather conditions, naturally resilient materials will always be a popular choice among homeowners and builders.

One thing is ultimately clear: slate roofing is catching on in Sydney, and companies like Mr Shingles have no shortage of customers looking for high-quality roofing materials.
