The Advantages of Slate Roofing

When you are re-vamping your roof, you’ll find that you have a lot of options to choose from. However, not all materials are the same, and not many will be able to match the advantages of slate.

At All Slates, we know what makes a good roof, and here we are going to show you just some of the many advantages you could be getting if you choose slate tiles for your home.


One of the best features of slate is its absolutely beautiful design. These distinctive tiles come in a wide range of colours, shapes and sizes, and are sure to suit any home. There simply isn’t another material that can match the natural beauty of slate, making it one of the most popular roofing materials in the world.


Slate is one of the most durable materials out there, and if you use quality materials and a professional roofing service, your roof could last you a lifetime. Slate can withstand extreme weather, and you can save money on repairs by purchasing a roof that is built to last.

Environmentally Friendly

Roofing waste accounts for a large percentage of waste materials sent to landfill, and this is mainly caused by the need to frequently re-shingle asphalt roofing. However, the durability and longevity of slate roofs means that there is less waste produced by your roof, which in turn means less waste sent to landfill.

Fire Resistant

Although it’s something you hope you’re never going to need, it is important to make sure that your home is as safe as possible in case of fire. Slate is one of the most fire resistant materials in existence. This will protect your home from overhead causes of fire, such as sparks, fireworks, wildfires and fires spreading from neighbouring houses.

As you can see, slate roofing has many advantages, and is one of the best materials you can use in your home. At All Slates, we provide quality reclaimed Chinese and Welsh slates that will create the perfect roof for any home.
