What are some of the disadvantages of slate tile?

Although they have many benefits, slate tiles do have their drawbacks. They are expensive, which can make slate tiles prohibitive for many homeowners, as can the weight of the shingles. Slate tiles are very heavy and most roof structures will need reinforcement to be able to hold the weight of a roof constructed of slate tiles. They can also be very fragile and break when walked on by someone who is not familiar with how to treat slate tile.
