Slate Roof Repairs - Long Lasting
One of the main reasons that people choose to have a slate or tile roof installed on their property is how durable they are. Slate is essentially made out of rock so it is millions of years old and is a natural stone. Tiles on the other hand are manufactured, typically a clay and concrete mix. As a result slate will be more expensive and offers less variety unlike tiles which can come in a much wider variety of styles and colours. In addition to slate tiles being more expensive more will be needed, as they are fixed with pegs and nail through pre drilled holes - which need more overlap, resulting in more slates. Also this form of fixing is only suitable for pitches of down to 25 degrees, which may impact your selection. Slate though is tougher than tiles and is completely fireproof and offers a smart authentic look to your property - so warrants a slightly higher price. However, if we install a slate roof for you, you can be assured that it will last for up to 100 years with minimum repairs and maintenance. This means that in all likelihood your roof will last a lot longer than you. To have your durable and long-lasting slate or tile roofing installed give us a call or send us an email today.
