Common Questions

What are Slate Roof Tiles?

Slate roof tiles, often referred to as roof slates, are a low-profile roofing material manufactured from natural stone. This stone is typically extracted from a quarry in one of the major slate exporters. These include countries such as Wales, Spain and Canada.  

Due to their appearance and durability, roof slates are one of the oldest roofing materials. They have been used for centuries with a so-called “slate boom” occurring throughout Europe in the 1870s. Natural slate continues to be a popular choice amongst roofers today.

What Are the Different Types of Roof Slate?

Slate roof tiles are extracted from quarries around the world. The slate extracted from these regions are clearly labelled and have their own characteristics. This is typically due to the environment and manufacturing process.

As Europe’s largest producer of natural slate, Spanish roof slates are the most common type. Due to the environment in Spain’s slate regions these tiles offer superb durability. They also feature a gorgeous mix of blue and grey colouring in many cases.

Another major producer of slate is Wales. Much like Spanish varieties, Welsh slate is incredibly dense and is therefore used for many applications beyond roofing. It is, however, considerably darker in appearance and features the classic black and grey mix people are familiar with.

Outside of Europe, Canada is another producer of slate roof tiles. Canadian slate is particularly suited for regions with severe winters. This is as it is shown to age less than other types of slate in long, tough winters. Like Welsh verities, Canadian slate features a distinct dark colouring with subtle tones of blue.

Besides these small variations in appearance, most natural slate offers a similar lifespan of 75+ years. It is, however, not uncommon for slate roof tiles to exceed this and outlast the property they adorn.

How Much Does a Slate Roof Cost?

The cost of a slate roof can vary heavily due to the different types of slate. However, you can typically expect a single slate to cost between £1.30 and £1.70. The coverage provided by slate roof tiles also varies due to them being available in various widths and lengths.

When considering which roofing material to use, you must also consider the maintenance they will demand. Unlike some manmade alternatives, natural slates require virtually no maintenance and single tiles can be replaced easily.

What is the Benefit of Natural Slate Roof Tiles?

Both natural slates and manmade slates are available. Unlike natural slates, manmade alternatives are manufactured from plastic. In some cases, they also feature limestone for a more authentic appearance.

The main benefit of natural slates is their appearance. Due to the profile of each tile being unique and featuring beautiful colouring, they offer superb curb appeal. Real slate roof tiles also age better than artificial slates.  

A significant disadvantage of natural slates is that they are prone to chipping or cracking. This often occurs in areas with severe hailstorms or during transport. For this reason, it is recommended that you account for 10% wastage when ordering slate roof tiles.
