Slate Roofs

Natural slate has been used throughout Europe for centuries as an attractive, durable and efficient roof covering. Modern reconstituted slates can have a natural slate content of up to 80% and provide a completely natural appearance, including a riven slate like surface. Our most popular natural slates are Spanish and Welsh.

Reconstituted slates are available with an interlocking design which can be laid on pitches as low as 17.5 degrees, or for a more traditional look, slates can be overlapped to form a conical shaped roof. The slates do not need on site sorting or holing unlike natural slate, and as a result there can be an overall weight reduction of up to 30%. They are maintenance free, and because of their high slate content they should retain their colour and appearance just like natural slate.
