Our slate is drawn from the finest quarries in Europe, and meets the most rigorous European CE standards and the French NF standard. Available in a wide variety of colours, textures and sizes, they are ideal in virtually any application where quality, durability and aesthetic appeal are important issues.

Our clay tiles provide the benefits of a natural clay roof at affordable prices. Natural materials are growing in popularity but the benefits usually come at a price.

As an architect, using these remarkable materials, to best advantage is high-quality material there are opportunities and challenges regarding natural slate that are best optimized by understanding – before the project is underway is equally important.

Old slates have been re-used for generations in the Conservation of historic buildings. In recent years demand increased as more buildings are being LISTED.

Demand for reclaimed slates and tiles is driven by Building Legislation, consumer demand and the fact that many churches, courthouses, railway stations and great houses are well over 100 years old and their roofs require upgrading. The easy way out and the cheapest solution is to put on Fibre-cement slates or concrete tiles but you are unlikely to get past your local planning authority. Planners are ensuring that homeowners protect our built HERITAGE for future generations.

A re-roof with shining new fire-cement slates, adjacent to other buildings with old Blue Bangor slates is incongruous and not acceptable. Equally a large new concrete tile, beside a weather beaten Marley Ludlow Plus tile, on an extension of a 1960’s house looks cheap and reduces the value of the property.

Roofing contractors and customers work closely with us prior to undertaking a re-roof. We will advise on the reclaimed materials available including budget cost of supply.  This enables us to have materials available on time, prevent time wasting and ensures that re-roofs match the original and comply with planning regulations.
