Slate roofs, as well as asphalt shingles, cedar, and metal roofs, are among the roofing materials that MARS Restoration specializes in for residential buildings.

Types of Slate Roofs We Install


Natural slate roofs provide a beautiful and timeless aesthetic to any property, while also providing superior protection against the elements. As well as being fire resistant, these roofs are extremely long lasting, with many natural slate roofs still in existence after centuries of use. They require very little maintenance and repair work throughout their lifespan, making them an ideal choice for homeowners looking for an eco-friendly roofing material that is also durable and cost effective.


DaVinci synthetic slate roofs are the perfect way to get a timeless, traditional look for your home without sacrificing modern durability. The unique composite technology combines natural colored quartz and recycled plastic resins to create lightweight and long-lasting roofing materials that never require maintenance or staining. These attractive slate tiles mimic real stone while being impervious to fire, mildew, insects and other damage.

The Advantages of Slate Roofing

Natural Slate Roofs

Natural slate roofs are among the most popular roofing choices for homes and businesses. They bring a number of advantages to their owners, including:

  • Durability – Natural slate can last up to 125 years with proper maintenance, making it one of the most long-lasting roofing materials available.

  • Low Maintenance – Unlike other materials, natural slate requires very little care or maintenance over its lifetime.
  • Versatile Applications – Slate is suitable for many different types of buildings, and can even be used in ornamental applications such as chimneys or walls.
  • Fire Resistance – Slate is naturally fire resistant and acts as an excellent barrier against flames should they break out.

Synthetic Slate Roofs

Synthetic slate roofs offer a variety of advantages over traditional slate roofs and other materials:

  • Extremely durable – Synthetic slates are fiberglass or polymer-based, which makes them highly resistant to warping, cracking and fading.
  • Cost effective – Synthetic slates cost much less than natural slate but still provide the same look and feel you’d expect from real stone.
  • Lightweight – These roofs are extremely lightweight compared to their natural counterparts, making for faster installation times.
  • Low maintenance – Synthetic slates require virtually no maintenance other than regular cleaning.

Slate Roof FAQs

How much does a slate roof cost in Maryland?

The cost of a new slate roof in Maryland depends on the size and complexity of the project. Materials can range from $20 to $40 per square foot while labor can cost between $15 to $45 per square foot depending on the job.

What are the different options for slate roofs?

The two main options for slate roofs are natural and synthetic slates. Natural slates are created from mined rocks, such as quartzite, shale, or phyllite. Synthetic slates are manufactured in factories and resemble the look of real slate roofing materials at a fraction of the cost.

What is the average lifespan of a slate roof?

The lifespan of a slate roof can vary depending on the quality of materials used and the climate in which it is installed, but typically it should last 30-100 years or more.

    It all started with a business card. My neighbor gave me a business card for MARS Construction because my roof was damaged and so was my ceiling. I called and the next day Justin was at my door. He provided full details on what the process … More would be, how long it would take, and how much it would be. And he graciously answered the 100 other questions my dad and I had lol. A week later, as he said I had my appointment for the installation of my new roof. 3 days after that my ceiling was finished and painted. Justin made this whole process from beginning to end a breeze. If I had any questions all I had to do was call and he picked up lol. I would definitely recommend MARS Construction with the services of Justin to anyone in need of home repair.

    Mars restoration replaced our roof and skylights. They did a great job and we are happy that we ran into them by chance in our neighborhood. The company is very responsive - especially Walter who we dealt with - and their crew was professional … More with their installation and clean up. The best part was that Walter knew how to get our insurance company to pay for most of the cost and we had hardly anything to do. Easiest and the best home repair I have done in 23 years with anyone. Strongly recommended!

    My wife and I asked our neighbors who had recently gotten a new roof about the roofing contractor they had used. They raved about their roofing company Project Manager, Walter Ruiz. We understand why, Walter met with us, inspected our … More roof, found some damage, took photos and even worked with our insurance company to help us get the roof replaced. The company, Mars Restoration, communicated each step of the way and sent a fantastic crew over to install our new roof. After they were done, Walter came by the next day and inspected their work to make sure it was a quality job. We ended up with Architectural shingles with a 30 year warranty and 130 MPH wind warranty. They also replaced our skylight at the same time. It all looks great! I highly recommend Walter and Mars Restoration. Thank you Walter!
