Slate Roofs

A natural slate roof laid correctly to the manufactures specifications can last in excess of 100 years with only little maintenance required throughout its lifetime. Slates are available in a variety of colours, styles and sizes.

 

Natural Slates

Natural slates are tough and attractive but old slates can become flaky, brittle and discoloured.

The most common problem with slate roofs is that the nails holding them in place loosen and corrode over time causing them to slip and allow water to leak into your property. Sometimes called nail sickness.

 

Man Made Fibre Cement Slates

Man-made slates are made of compressed fibre cement, protected with a coating and coloured to replicate the appearance of natural slates. They can be more economical to use than traditional natural slates but have a lesser life expectancy. With more slates now being imported there are alternative natural slates that are far cheaper than the Welsh slate.

 

Tiled Roofs

There are many types of roofing tile either concrete or clay, clay having a longer life expectancy over concrete and don’t bleach and lose its colour over time as with concrete tiles. Concrete tiles are far cheaper than clay tiles but as with most concrete tiled roofs will still have a good life expectancy needing only occasional maintenance.
