Common Questions

What Are Roof Slates?

Example of Natural Slates on a Roof

Slate roof tiles, which are 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, natural slate is one of the oldest roofing materials. They have been used for centuries with a so-called “slate boom” occurring throughout Europe in the 1870s. The material continues to be a popular choice amongst roofers today.

What Are the Different Types of Slate?

Slates are extracted from quarries around the world. They are then clearly labeled to indicate the region of origin. Although, they also have their own characteristics 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 they 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 roof slates are incredibly dense and are 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 varieties are 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 slates offer a similar lifespan of 75+ years. It is, however, not uncommon for them 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 they provide also varies due to them being available in various widths and lengths.

You can expect to spend between £30 - £40 per square meter when using natural slate. This is far higher than many other traditional materials, such as concrete or clay. 

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?

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

The main benefit of real slate is their appearance. Due to the profile of each tile being unique and featuring beautiful colouring, they offer superb curb appeal. They also age far better than artificial slates in many cases. 

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 placing your order.
