Give Your Roof The Natural Look
Slate has been used on roofs in Britain since ancient times. The timeless look it offers is accompanied by the excellent durability of this natural material.
The modern construction industry takes environmental concerns very seriously and slate is an environmentally friendly, natural material since it can be re used, recycled and salvaged and is sustainable. A natural slate roof will last for the whole lifespan of a building if it is laid correctly. All of the slate used by Best Roofers is tested to BS EN 12326 Part 1, meets stringent current ratings and is able to stand up to normal extremes of temperature. Slate is also resistant to acids, alkalis and other chemicals.
The same cannot also be said about some man made goods which can suffer from the effects of acid rain in the form of discolouration although the process can be slowed through the application of a surface coating. A slate roof also gives character to a building through subtle differences in colour and texture which many people find pleasing. Slate is often the most appropriate material to use on period properties and is often insisted upon as a condition in conservation areas in order that neighbouring properties present a uniform aesthetic.
