A slate roof offers a timeless natural appearance and is a popular roofing choice for many, because of its impressive service life, excellent durability, and timeless appeal.
Welsh slate is known for its bluer tones, while Westmoreland is celebrated for its green-grey hue.
Natural slate can be cut into any shape for installation on your slate roof, although rectangular units are the traditional option in the UK.
Imported slates offer a cheaper alternative for your slate roof, although units sourced from overseas have been subject to some bad press over recent years. However, providing you check your slates meet the required quality standards, they can be a smart purchase.
Manufactured to a uniform size, colour and finish, man-made fibre-cement tiles are an affordable alternative to natural slate. The consistent thickness and pre-drilled holes make for quicker and easier installation, too, saving on costs.
