Welsh Slate is the most durable slate in the world, with a useful and productive guaranteed long-life expectancy of more than 100 years. It benefits from several highly practical properties that make it an exceptional roofing material. A pitched slate roof is highly resistant to acids, alkalis and other chemicals and is non-fading, even under UV light. It is also waterproof and unaffected by normal extremes of temperature.
When installing or repairing a slate roof, we prefer to use natural slate from Penrhyn Welsh Slates and Cwt-y-Bugail Quarries, which are the finest roofing slates in the world. Their outstanding durability is what sets Welsh slate apart from others and is much desired by architects for heritage and prestigious projects. Welsh slate can bring out the elegance of any building when installed at the highest calibre.
