Slate by SSQ

SSQ have been supplying people with the ultimate in natural roofing slate since 1983.

That’s 30 years and counting of whispered awe as customers step back to take in the sight of their finished building for the first time.

There is nothing like being captivated by your finished project, and knowing that not only does it look beautiful, but it will last a lifetime too.

Natural slate has a spellbinding magic to it.

Maybe it’s because it has been millions of years in the making.

Maybe it’s because every single slate is split by hand.

Or maybe it’s the way the sun plays across its surface, revealing a rich shimmer unique to a material so skilfully carved from the earth.

Whether you are an architect, a homeowner, a contractor or you are involved in heritage projects, SSQ slate will add magic to your building.
