Natural Slate Roof Tiles
Updated: Nov 25, 2019
Natural Slate is perfect for period properties and projects that reflect the natural environment around them. It has stunning authentic look that can not be replicated by manufacturers. It is one of the most stylish and stunning roofing tiles but thats not the only reason why it is so popular.
Most natural slate tiles come from areas where there are natural quarries such as Wales, England, Spain, France & Portugal. The largest producer & exporter of natural slate is Spain where a massive 90% off natural slate roofing tiles come from their quarries.
Thanks to the natural properties of slate it is easy to form into different thicknesses and sizes while still maintaining its natural appearance. It makes the perfect roofing product to use due to its very low water absorption index is less than 0.4%. No wonder slate has been used for centuries it has a very long life span, look around you and you will see that slate has been used on churches and old building due to the longevity of this natural stone. It is incredibly low maintenance, it does not grow moss and algae it is also completely fireproof!
