Some of Slate roofing Work

Below are some facts and information about slate and tile materials.

About Slate
Slate is a great roofing material which has been used on roofs for many centuries. Welsh slate is known as the best slate money can buy with a minimum life expectancy of 75 years. In many cases Welsh slate can be reused even after reaching its expected life of 75 years. Unfortunately Welsh slate is an expensive material often used on stately homes and royal residents, it has even been used at number 10 Downing Street.

Not to worry there are many other manufacturers of slate for roofing purposes. Many people opt for Spanish or Chinese slate which come at a far cheaper price and also have long life expectancies of between 60 and 75 years.

About Tiling
Clay tiles have excellent environmental credentials and can achieve an A+ rating in the building research establishments (BRE) Green guide to specification. Coupled with the fact that clay is a natural material and has a very long life compared to many of its counterparts, making clay a clear choice for any roofing project.

Cement tiles are a more cost effective alternative to clay or slate and is available in a range of colours, profiles, shapes and sizes. Because of its lower cost to slate and clay, concrete has become a clear favourite for many of our clients.
