Common Questions

What Colour is Welsh Slate?

The colour of slate is largely dependent upon the location of the quarry it's extracted from. There are even minor differences between the quarries in Wales, with Penrhyn, Ffestiniog, and Cwt-y-Bugail each producing slates with minor colour differences. 

The majority of slates from Wales feature a grey and blue colouring. Some, such as those sourced from Penrhyn, can also feature a dark red tone. Wherever it is produced, Welsh slates offer a traditional and iconic colouring that is perfectly suited for period and contemporary properties.

How Much Does Welsh Slate Cost?

You can expect to pay around £40 per square metre of roof space for Welsh slate roof tiles. Although this initial cost is relatively high compared to other roof tiles or slates, none match Welsh slate’s considerable character, strength, and longevity.
