Natural roofing slate is recognised throughout the world as one of the finest building materials available. The material has a capability to withstand the most extreme environmental and weather conditions. Its durability and its unique natural beauty has led to the specification of slate in a broad range of roofing applications.
Natural roofing slate offers the specifier or builder both aesthetic appeal and exceptional durability. This durability means that natural slate can contribute considerably to a building’s whole life costs. A slate roof will last the lifetime of the building, if laid correctly.
Natural roofing slate will be unaffected by normal extremes of temperature, and will be resistant to acids, alkalis and other atmospheric pollutants such as sulphur dioxide. Aesthetically, natural slate respects the traditional or local character where it is used. This is especially important in conservation areas, where slate selection may require to match existing roofing materials on surrounding buildings. As a natural product it will also feature variations in colour, sizes and textures to enhance the overall visual effect.
