Coloured Slate Tiles

Perhaps the most notable advantage of the slate roof is the wonderful effect that can be created with the differing shades and colours of slate.  It is truly remarkable to find a natural product possessing such unlimited possibilities in colour effect.  The use of slate for roofing makes it possible to obtain a surface of uniform or contrasting colours in cold or warm values. Other very important advantages of the slate roof, apart from the colour variety, is the long durability of slate.  The high density and low porosity of slate tiles ensure waterproofing and the prevention of latent dampness.
