Slates might be the option for you if you are looking for a practical roof which also has a clean, neat and uniform look to it. All slates are usually recognised by their distinct grey colour. All of our tiles are non-fading, even in UV light, so they stay looking as good as new.
Slates come in two types – natural or cement. Natural slates are sourced from quarries in Spain. Completely non-porous and non-combustible, natural slates have a lifespan of up to 150 years whilst still retaining their magnificence and high performance. As they are a mineral product, these slates are not subject to chemical processes, meaning they still have their natural beauty.
Cement slates (or composite slates) are made from cement fibre. These slates are similar to natural slates in the way they look but are synthetic. Still incredibly durable, these slates are a more affordable alternative to natural slates. As they are manufactured, these slates are extremely consistent and therefore only need one layer to form entirely waterproof protection, saving tiles and time.
