Slates and Clay Tiles
Clay Tile Roofing
With so many roof tiles now available on the market from a wide range of machine made clays and concretes, hand made clay tiles, pan tiles, reclaimed tiles and fittings. We advise on the best tile for your roof taking into consideration the pitch and weight per ton. The appearance of the tile and surroundings and if the property is listed we obtain approval from the conservation officer, we will supply samples for approval.
Slate roofs can be many many years old before they need to be re roofed. Many old roofs still have the original slates on with no felt beneath. Over time the fixings can begin to fail and the slates slip. Slipped slates can be re-sited using lead clips but do not always look as aesthetically pleasing as the lead clip is surface showing. When ever we strip a slate roof we always look to salvage the slates which are cleaned and re-holed for a new fixing and then reused on the same roof if that is what our client has asked us to do.
We can always obtain new natural slates of which there are many qualities on the market available and again samples can always be obtained for selection to be made.
