Expected to last for 100 years

Slate is a metamorphic rock that naturally splits into thin sheets, which is perfect for tiles. It will not fade; it is entirely waterproof and fireproof and can be expected to last for 100 years. It is also environmentally friendly – not only is it a natural material, but if it is expertly installed, it will not need to be replaced for a very long time. It can also be recycled as slate chippings once it has reached the end of its life as a tile.

Invest in slate

Slate does have its disadvantages. It’s a superb investment, but it carries a higher upfront cost than many other, less resilient alternatives. It is also fragile and requires expert handling and its heavier weight means that it is important for a knowledgeable installer to assess that it has sufficient support to carry the weight. Fortunately, if you contact us we have all the expertise and knowledge to be able to ensure your slate roof installation goes without a hitch.
