From the lustrous blue grey of Burlington to the veined green of Honnister no other roofing product can match the timeless beauty of natural slate. Be it on a simple domestic dwelling to the most spectacular stately home, slate has been the roof covering of choice for hundreds of years. Even the names of slates, Countesses, Small Ladies, Doubles and Randoms are steeped in tradition. However do not think of slate as being confined to old buildings. The range of slate available makes it equally suitable for a new build as it does to restore the grandeur of an historic building.
Not only aesthetically pleasing, slate is also one of the most durable of all roofing materials. Its low tendency to absorb water makes it very resistant to frost damage and breakage due to freezing. A well installed slate roof can expect to have a useful working life of a century or more!
When considering slate for your building project it is vitally important that it’s installation is carried out to the highest standards – a badly installed slate roof is unpleasant to the eye and, to repair, expensive on the pocket! At Pickles Roofing we have been installing slate roofs for over 150 years. Very few roofing companies can make such an enviable claim. The depth and breadth of our skilled craftsmen’s knowledge about this superb roofing material is second to none. You can rest assured that the slate roof fitted by Pickles Roofing will be the crowning glory of your building for decades to come.
