Slate Roofing |

Natural slate is widely recognized as one of the finest building material available. The material has a capability to withstand the most extreme environmental and weather conditions. Its durability and its natural beauty have lead to the specification of slate in a broad range of roofing finishes.

Natural slate offers designers and builders both a natural appeal and exceptional durability. This durability means that slate can contribute considerably to a buildings whole life costs. A slate roof will last the lifetime of the buildings, if laid correctly. Natural slate, tested to BS EN 12326 Part 1 and meeting the highest relevant ratings, will be unaffected by normal extremes of temperature, and will be resistant to acids, alkalis and other atmospheric pollutants such as sulphur dioxide.

Natural slate respects the traditional or local character where it is used. This is especially important in conservation areas, where slate selection may be required to match existing roofing materials on surrounding buildings. As a natural product it will also throw variations in colour, sizes and textures to enhance the overall visual effect.

Historically slates were from a local source, however, nowadays with more quarries available, worldwide imported slates can also be a very close match, in terms of appearance and performance top local materials.
