Reclaimed Welsh Slate
Reclaimed Welsh Slate
Many of the oldest homes in the United Kingdom have slate roofs because slates are known to be one of the longest lasting materials available on the market. Welsh slates such as the ones on the website are well known in the industry for their beauty, durability and longevity. The classic appearance of the slate roof is one of its biggest draws. Welsh Slate roof tiles are made of natural stone meaning the tiles have a distinct surface and excellent colour variation that will range over the entire roof. The second main advantage of slate roof tiles is their amazing durability, often outlasting the buildings they have been installed on. When a slate roof has been installed properly and is cared for, it’s not unheard of that it will last up to 150 years. Welsh slate in particular is long lasting and is often seen as the best slate money can buy.
In addition to their visual appeal and unbeatable longevity, slate roof tiles are virtually fire proof and environmentally friendly which is increasingly important in our modern times. High quality Welsh slates like the ones we’re offering here at JJ Roofing will not give off pollution during manufacturing and can easily be recycled after they are used or end up outlasting the building they’ve been installed on. Slates are also beneficial because they will help with insulating the home below them; which means lower energy costs for the homeowner who chooses these excellent tiles. Welsh slates are also a water-resistant natural material that will match almost any aesthetic requirements. Natural reclaimed tiles and slates are able to withstand extreme weather conditions and temperature changes. Reclaimed slates are purchased when customers want to re-tile a whole roof, or to just match existing tiles. If you simply need to replace tiles to prevent your roof from being damaged, then reclaimed tiles are ideal as they not only fit the existing tiles, but they would act as an ideal match to your current roof tiles. Each slate has been individually sorted by our reclaim team to ensure customers only buy quality materials.
