A natural slate tiled roof is undoubtedly one of the most traditional and beautiful roof types available. Well maintained slate roofs have a long lifespan with an unrivalled elegance. Over the last few years, a number of slate products made from fibre cement and resin have been created which are more eco-friendly and often easier to install than the natural slate, whilst still creating the sought-after appearance of a natural slate roof.
Here at Roofstores, we are constantly enriching our range of natural and man made slates to enable you to finish your project to the highest specification.

According to BS 5534 [Code of Practice for Slating and Tiling the minimum pitch for double lap slating is 20 degrees in a moderate exposure area and 22.5 degrees in a severe exposure area. Please see your exposure area in SIGA Headlaps Addendum document.
