Slating, Tiling & Re-Roofing What is Slate?
Slate is fine-grained rock formed over 500 million years, starting from sedimentary clay deposits in ancient seas and when over time the earth’s crust temperature heated and cooled the clay slowly turned into shale and eventually to slate.
Why Choose Slate?
Slate roof tiles are a natural, durable and attractive material which unlike other modern roofing materials will withstand the most severe weather conditions and extremes in temperature. Slate tiles have been used worldwide for thousands of years and recognised as one of the finest roofing materials available.
A good quality slate will last the lifetime of building and is ideal for use on any project including prestige homes, city offices, churches, supermarkets and schools to name some.
