Natural slates have been used since the 14th century and are still one of the most popular roofing products to date. They can be used on most projects from heritage to new builds. Reclaimed slate is the preferred option for period projects due to its quality and weathered characteristics. The quality is undeniable with lifespans exceeding 100 years in most cases.
We stock reclaimed Welsh, Westmorland and Burlington slate.
For newer projects, we generally recommend Spanish slate. Not only is Spanish slate in keeping with newer projects, but it is also high-quality and cost-effective, and constitutes up to 90% of Europe’s slate buildings.
