Who are Yates Slates?

Yates & Co Ltd are a highly experienced slates supplier, specialised in the delivery and sourcing of quality roofing from around the world. Established in 1988, our reputable roots go back to 1929, since when the Yates family name became synonymous with natural roofing slates. Based in Lancashire, North West, UK, we distribute natural slates directly sourced from the Welsh and Cumbrian quarries.

Confidence in Quality

Our commitment to quality slates has earned us the trust of installers, consumers and architects over the years, reaffirming our leadership in the natural slate sector. Although the largest majority of our business is purely focused on natural roofing slates, we complement our services with a range of accessories, including slate vents, nails and ridges, among others. Our primary focus is to provide our customers with quality products backed by a competitive pricing structure.

Timeless Classic

Natural roofing slate is known as a timeless classic because it does not age. This makes it the perfect choice for a residential or commercial project. In the UK, it is highly recommended for projects within national parks and conservative areas not just for its outstanding beauty but because it is an excellent alternative to the indigenous material. All our slate materials are chemical-free, making them the perfect option for sustainability, unlike the man-made roofing alternatives.

Yates has a dedicated workforce, who take their time to visit slate factories for quality control. This commitment allows us to supply our customers with only the best slates, fostering a lasting business relationship. In the unlikely event of a complaint, we are always there to resolve the issue through our good trading relations with the overseas companies. Our communications department is tasked with informing customers of all the activities of each sector, from established quarries, new supplies, and many more important details.
