Tile or slate roofing

Tile or slate roofs

Slate and tile roofs are popular in the UK because of their durability, weather resistance and long lasting qualities. With both products you can also choose from a number of colours and styles to not only set your home apart, but add something unique.

Slate rooftops in particular have a range of colours that can be used, such as black, grey, red, purple and green. This allows homeowners to utilise a colour that matches perfectly with the existing infrastructure.

Because of the compound’s structure it can’t be bent and pieces are often nailed to the roof. Corners and odd angles will then be covered with copper flashing to protect the rooftop further.

Benefits of slate and tile roofs

There are a range of benefits associated with slate and tile roofs, mainly the durability, variety of patterns, life expectancy and ease of maintenance.

Both products also have a great resistance to fire and aren’t affected by rust or insects. With little maintenance needed over the life expectancy of up to 75 years, you’ll have a superb looking rooftop for minimal hassle.

Marie, the lady who did the site visit, was delightful and very efficient. I did not appreciate the degree of hard sell to which I was then subjected, and in the end, the quotation was not competitive.

R & R telephoned within an hour of me joining Quotatis and arranged a meeting the following day (Saturday) to assess and quote for the job, then duly arrived on the Monday. All work was satisfactorily completed by late afternoon. The job consisted of replacing leaky gutters with new gutters properly re-aligned together with down pipes and a new water butt. They ran water into the gutters to check that all was well. They were courteous and tidied up when finished. For what it is worth they gave a ten year guarantee. I now await heavy rain to test for myself. It will be a relief not to endure the Chinese torture of heavy rain thundering on our drain covers.

Put us in touch with this company who did a good job in a timely manner and we would be happy to use again. It would have been better to have had a choice of companies prepared to quote for a "small" job but we are pleased with the outcome anyway.

About UK

Energy Performance of Houses

Properties are given an energy score dependent on how efficient they are and ratings are shown in the information beneath. This ranges from A, by far the most energy efficient, to G, the least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have more affordable energy bills as more heat will probably be retained in your home. You are able to boost your home's efficiency with insulation including upvc double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
