Installing a slate roof offers durability, longevity, low maintenance, sustainability, energy efficiency and they look good too.

  • Slate is an exceptionally durable roofing material, known to last for centuries when properly installed and maintained. It can withstand extreme weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, wind and hail.
  • Slate roofs have one of the longest lifespans amongst all roofing materials, often lasting 100-150 years. Installing a slate roof will reduce the frequency of re-roofs and lower the long-term maintenance costs.
  • Compared to many other roofing materials, slate requires minimal maintenance over its lifespan. It is naturally resistant to mould, mildew and insect damage. Periodic inspections and simple maintenance, such as clearing debris from gutters and replacing damaged or missing tiles, are usually sufficient to keep a slate roof in excellent condition.
  • Slate is a natural stone material, making it an environmentally friendly choice for roofing. It is produced from natural quarries and requires minimal processing, reducing its environmental impact compared to synthetic roofing materials.
  • Slate roofing has inherent thermal properties that can help to regulate indoor temperatures and improve energy efficiency. Its high thermal mass helps to absorb and slowly release heat, reducing the need for heating and cooling in the home.
  • Slate roofing offers classic beauty and elegance, enhancing the appeal and value of your home. Stone slate and natural slate comes in a variety of colours, textures and sizes, allowing you to choose the option that best complements the architectural style of your home and your personal preferences.
