Yates Slate suppliers are your most reliable UK slate supplier and stockists, bringing you the finest natural roof slates for sale from all corners of the globe. Our range of natural roof slates will therefore enable you to create the design needed, promising to blend in with your local environment and budget.

The best part about natural roof slates is that they often outlive the building they are protecting and require little to no maintenance. With our high-grade roofing slates, expect to have a material that will last for 100-200 years. Historically, timber and fixings deteriorate way before slates do.


With the world now more conscious than ever about the materials used on buildings, you can be sure that our natural roof slates are more environmentally friendly than man made alternatives. If you are looking to lower your carbon footprint, natural slates have some of the lowest emissions of all roofing products.

These materials are recyclable centuries after use and do not require any chemical products. What’s more, our roofing slates will increase your property value, since they come to you with a touch of beauty and elegance.

The beautiful Penrhyn Welsh slate, for example, was removed from St Asaph Cathedral after 400 years in use and then reused elsewhere. This practice also applies to civic buildings extending as far away as Australia!
