Natural Slates

Welsh Slate Roof Tiles

Welsh Slate is among the finest roofing slate available, and it will provide you with a roof that will endure for generations.

As a result of Wales’s remarkable geology, the slate quarried there has unique physical features that have allowed it to withstand the test of time in the worst climates conceivable. Capital, County, and Celtic are all available in varying thicknesses to meet the needs of various construction tasks. Durability-wise, Welsh Slate is on par with, or even exceeds, Spanish Slate and other forms of slate. Penrhyn and CWT-y-Bugail are the two most common varieties of Welsh slate that can be purchased commercially.

Spanish Slate Roof Tiles

As the most widely used and well-regarded roofing material in the world, Spanish Slate accounts for over 80% of all European roofing slate. It provides a beautiful, classic look to your roof and has many practical uses in addition to its visual value.

Spanish Slate is a foliated metamorphic rock formed over millions of years from fine-grained sediments, giving it a distinct appearance. It contains mostly the minerals quartz, sericite, and chlorite, typically resulting in a black or grey appearance.

Spain is home to many quarries that provide a significant portion of the world's demand for slate. Despite this, standards may vary significantly from one quarry to the next, and there are often several grades in use.

Canadian Slate Roof Tiles

In recent years, Glendyne Natural Canadian Slate Tiles have gained a strong reputation for their high quality because of their great physical qualities and cool bluish-grey colour.

The mix of cutting-edge extraction methods and time-honoured craftsmanship has helped the slate quickly earn a stellar reputation for quality. There are no pyrites or metals in the Glendynes. This kind of slate may offer your home a sophisticated and expensive appearance.

Brazilian Slate Roof Tiles

Barcamp Slate of this pure Brazilian quality comes from the Papagaois area of Brazil. Both the grey-green and graphite variants have subtle tonal shifts that contribute to the roof's overall excellent quality and beautiful appearance. This grey-green slate has a characteristic slate structure and colouration due to the chlorine concentration.

Grey slate roof tile is noted for its durability and resistance to the weather and is an eco-friendly option. In addition to being a visually striking and durable roofing material, Brazilian roof slate requires little processing during its creation.

Brazilian roof slates are an affordable and aesthetically pleasing solution, particularly for residential structures.

Artificial Slate Roof Tiles

Because roofing materials are exposed to the weather throughout the year, durability is a key consideration. Natural slate deteriorates in the sun and other weather conditions, whereas synthetic slate may last for many years without maintenance. It can withstand high winds, flames, and impacts without breaking.

There is a broad range of architectural styles that synthetic slate roofs may complement, from modern to French Colonial. Plastics, polymers, clay, fibre cement, rubber, steel, and even asphalt may all be used to create a convincing imitation of real slate.
