Frequently asked questions
What is better slate or tiles?
It really does depend on what you want. Slate is a more traditional product available in limited colours. Tiles are either made from clay or cement but you can choose from a wider range of colours and styles. The cost of a slate roof will be more than if you were using tiles. But they both come with a 20 year warranty.
Is scaffolding included?
Yes, all our projects are quoted with scaffolding included.
Materials for a pitched roof
The most common product used will be tile and slate. These are available in a variety of colours and styles. The difference is mainly in the materials they are made from and the style. Anything from clay, concrete to interlocking and large format tiles. The choice is yours but you want the roof to blend in with your local environment.
For a more traditional finish, slate roofing is one of the oldest materials you can use. It’s very durable against our changeable weather and looks smart on any roof. Fixed to the structure with nails to hold the slate in place.There is plenty of choice on roof finishes and something we can talk to you about
