Why should you choose roofing slate for your project?

PRACTICAL: The combination of slates natural properties makes it an ideal material for most builds. It has a high resistance to acids, alkalis and other chemicals, it is unaffected by ultra violet light and by normal temperatures. Slate is also non combustible making it a very practical roofing material.

APPEARANCE: Slate comes in a wide variation of colours, textures and thicknesses giving you the ability to choose the perfect slate for your property, whether that be sleek and modern to traditional and rustic. Slate adds a special finish to a build that other roofing materials struggle to achieve.

LONGEVITY: There have been numerous cases where roofing slate has been removed from a building after hundreds of years in order to replace other materials and has been reinstalled. Natural slate is almost unrivalled in its durability and longevity. This is why slate is guaranteed to last for a very long time.
