When it comes to elegance and premium quality, there is nothing quite like a slate roof. Our slating team are skilled and experienced (over 60-years combined industry experience) in new-build slate and re-slating works. All of our slate roofers have undergone the training and hold the necessary qualifications for skilled slate work. We pride ourselves in our quality and expert craftsmanship when it comes to slate roof installations and repairs.
Natural Aesthetics – Slate tiles are cut from natural metamorphic rocks which are derived from sedimentary rock of volcanic ash and clay. The natural beauty of slate can improve and enhance a home or building whether it’s a new build or existing heritage property. They also vary in colour and texture allowing you to create an interesting and attractive finish on your roof.
Durability – Slate roofing materials derive from natural volcanic rock which has formed millions of years ago showing that it is a naturally durable material. A slate roof can last anywhere from 50 to 200 years depending on the type of slate tile used.
Resistant – A professionally installed slate roof is extremely resistant against extreme weather and fire. This makes them less likely to get damaged during storms, fireworks and strong winds preventing leaks and other issues that can arise from a damaged roof.
Sustainability – Because of its durability, a slate roof will last your lifetime meaning less wastage than other types of roofing that may need replacing every few years. A slate roof also makes for an excellent insulator during Winter AND Summer due to the high density of slates which may help to keep the bills at a minimum when it comes to heating or cooling your home.
Easily Maintained – If your slate roof has been correctly installed by a reputable roofing company that specialises in slate, your roof should be easy to maintain. Its durability means less damage or repairs and with some light cleaning and maintenance, the slate should retain its quality and colour.
