Casey- that particular shingle pattern/concept is very typical for asbestos shingles- it's effectively single coverage- translation: any visible or other damage is quite likely to be a leak- there's not much or no multiple layer protection common to better single concepts- asbestos is usually also of a predictable life span more so than other materials like slate- repairs to aging roofs of this sort can be viewed as progressively more impractical- disposal of asbestos when re-roofing can be problematic, too...

We are considering purchasing the house but noticed the "slate" tiles looked like they had fibers in them. Is it asbestos?
