With its unique natural beauty, slate is recognised throughout the world as one of the finest roofing materials available. People use slate for roofing for the following reasons: beauty, strength, durability, fireproof water resistance and minimum maintenance.
Why choose natural slate?
Ideal for a broad range of roofing applications, its durability means it can contribute considerably to a building’s whole life costs. In fact, a slate roof will last the lifetime of the building, if laid correctly – which is exactly what we do, time after time as experienced slate roofing contractors.
Many natural stones are expensive due to difficult quarrying processes. However slate is one of the most economical materials on the market. The low cost has made a wide variety of slates readily available. Natural slates are individually split and individually dressed and should be treated as an individual unit when being fixed on the roof. One slate may suit a particular location on the roof better than another, perhaps for reasons of thickness, natural curvature, surface texture of appearance, therefore proper grading and selection of slates is extremely important to achieve a neat and attractive finish.
