Slate and tile are two of the most common materials used for roofing, because of the high durability to weather, and the wide array of options, patterns and styles to choose from.

Our experts have a wealth of experience in installing both slate and tile roofing, meaning that you can rest assured you are in safe hands when we install the style of your choosing. We understand that no two roofs are the same, so we are happy to give you a no-obligation quote on your roofing requirements.
Natural and artificial are the two different types of slate available as material for your roof. Although natural slate tends to be more expensive, it is made from fine grained rock that is very durable and resistant to weather. Many people choose slate roofing for the aesthetic appearance of your house, which is likely to add value to your property.
Slate is a durable, low maintenance choice of material that is resistant to fire and rotting, that lasts for years.
The material a tile is made from is either concrete or clay, both materials which provide a wide choice of patterns and colours, which allows you to personalise your house. Tiles have a very long life expectancy, and remain resistant to weather however long you have them. Concrete tiles are bigger than clay tiles, making them more efficient to install, causing minimal disruption, however for chimneys or smaller roofs, smaller clay tiles are used.
For increased protection against weather and mould, you can add layers of tiles, at an extra cost.
