Slate is a traditional roofing material that has been used for roofing for over 700 years. It is a natural, durable material. Today it comes in three varieties – natural, artificial and zinc – that creates an authentic and beautiful roof that is particularly well-suited for for traditional-style homes.
Artificial tiles produced from either clay or concrete are similar to slate, with properties that make them long-lasting and hard-wearing. They are available in many styles and colours to suit the look of modern houses.
Here are the benefits of slate and tile roofing:
Slate is very durable, and slate roofs that are well-maintained can last up to 150 years. Tile roofs also last a long time, around 50 to 70 years. Standard roofs generally have a lifespan of around 20-30 years, so slate and tiles are impressively long-lasting.
- Long-term value
While they are initially more expensive, slate or tile roofs provide good long-term value because of their durability, making them a good investment.
Slate is usually grey, but it does come in a variety of shades, as well as different patterns and textures. Manufactured tile comes in a wide variety of colours and designs. We have several different means of affixing them to the roof, making them suitable for any situation.
