Slate Roofs

Why Have A Slate Roof?

Slate Roofs are a popular, attractive and durable roofing solution, made of metamorphic rock. An unrivalled capacity to absorb water and withstand intense weather, as well as protect against fire highlight their low maintenance level.

Slate Roof Tiles

The Process

Interested in how we create our slate roofs? Discover our process below:

  • All slate tiles are hole punched or drilled to allow for nail placement.
  • We find the roof’s centre point and mark a starting position.
  • A starter strip is placed on the roof to prevent fall-off and provide a waterproof layer below the slate.
  • We start to nail in the first course of slate roof tiles, and then using pre-made marks, determine where the next course will begin.
  • We then stagger succeeding courses for protection.
