If you’re trying to decide between a variety of different materials for your roof, you may be wondering why Natural Slate? For those of us slate lovers, the answers are obvious. But some of you may need a little more convincing. So let us spell it out:
Slate is practically “engineered” by Mother Nature. Its ability to be shaped onsite and combined with other sizes and colours makes it much easier to use in complex projects. It’s VERY adaptable. As if it was meant to be that way. Standardisation is an alien concept to skilled roofers and at thicknesses starting from 3mm the possibilities are truly endless.
We are so confident about this and we WILL guarantee this.
It is relatively inexpensive compared to other materials. Yes really! You’re not hallucinating. Over time, other materials will break down more quickly. And so they will need to be replaced and the roof “reroofed”. With good quality slate this is never an issue. Read more here.
Good slate = high quality. High quality = more value. A recent study showed that the value of your building is influenced by the materials you use in its construction. As slate is classified as a high value material, you have nothing to lose and lots to gain by specifying natural slate. It’s a win-win situation.
You may think of slate as being old-fashioned, but that’s where you would be wrong. The flexibility of slate goes hand-in-hand with modern architecture. Really! A sleek look is easily achievable and you are limited only by your imagination. So start thinking outside the box.
No this isn’t just a rumour. It’s a fact. And fact we are happy to guarantee in writing. Your slate will outlast the building it is on.
Slate is lower maintenance than any of the roofing materials out there over its lifespan. Our technical department would be happy to go through this with you in detail.
Speaks for itself really! Green is the way to go.
