Yes, slates are considered a premium roofing material and can be more expensive than other options like single lap clay and concrete tiles. However, their long lifespan and classic appeal make them a valuable investment for some homeowners.

At West Country Tiling, we specialise in working with a variety of roof coverings, as well as stone and natural slates, we work with plain tiles, leadwork, oak shakes, cedar shingles, man-made slates, modern concrete tiles and single lap clay tiles.
