Are you an architect, developer, or roofing specialist? Does your next project involve an extensive amount of roofing work? Do you want a roofing material that offers outstanding levels of weather resistance and performance? If this sounds like you, have you considered a slate roof?

Slate roofs for the highest levels of protection

Slate has been used as a roofing material for hundreds of years. Its strength and robustness as a roofing material are well known across the world.

From large commercial buildings to new residential developments and period property renovations, slate roofs provide a range of attributes that other materials such as clay and concrete tiles can’t match.

In terms of weather resistance, a slate roof will provide decades of protection. When you choose high quality Spanish slate from SSQ, you can expect:

  • Very low water absorption capacity
  • Impermeable surface (natural slate’s non-slip qualities make it a great choice for floor tiles both internally and externally)
  • Excellent heat resistance
  • Natural slate will never warp, bend, or contract
  • Resistant against UV damage
  • Fireproof – 100% non-combustible

Natural slate is also an excellent material in terms of sustainability. It contains no additional chemicals and does not undergo high polluting industrial processes, helping to reduce emissions and limit waste.
