Slate Roofing

Similar to clay, natural slate offers a truly authentic look that cannot be replicated by manufacturers.

Similar to clay, natural slate offers a truly authentic look that cannot be replicated by manufacturers. For period projects, or properties that need to reflect the natural environment around them, natural slate is usually the preferred choice. Its lifespan goes beyond both clay and concrete by some distance and has even been known to outlast the structure of the very buildings they have been placed upon. For a truly stunning look there is no other material to match natural slate.

Nowadays we can source more cost-effective ranges of slate from around the world including China and Spain, without breaking the bank with more traditional Welsh and Cornish slate.

Of course, there is the cheaper alternative, fibre cement slate. Although very durable, the fibre cement slate are prone to poor weathering and lose their clean finish quite quickly.

Slate Options

  • Natural Slate: Sourced and taken from natural environments to produce a stunning finish.

 

  • Fibre Cement Slate: Made primarily from cement and other elements and is a versatile, cost-effective option.

Client Testimonials

New Porch Roof and guttering

“I would recommend David and his team (and have been) as he is pleasant to deal with, solution focused and nothing was a problem to deal with. He was tidy, prompt, on budget and courteous. It’s extremely hard to find a decent tradesman these days and I’ll definitely be using his services for any future requirements given his strong work ethic, comparable prices and ability to get the job done correctly.”

Rena, St. Albans

Re-tile roof, insulation, new fascia’s, soffits, galvanized steel guttering and pipes

“If you want a company that will ensure you get the results you want at a very reasonable price, look no further. Communication was excellent. They are professional, highly proficient, polite and friendly. An excellent job done.”

Theresa, Hertford

Re-tile roof and solar panels. Including gutter soffit and fascia.

“Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dave and his team. Quality of workmanship is excellent, and they accommodated various changes and several small extras within the originally quoted price. Particularly pleased with Dave’s recommendation to retain the existing clay pan tiles rather than replace with concrete as per other quotes received. Whilst not the cheapest quote, definitely competitive and certainly the contractor that inspired the most confidence.”
