Manmade slate products, installed across Devon, Somerset, Cornwall, Jersey and Guernsey
The choice between manmade slates and natural slates can be a difficult one. Some manmade slates can be very cost effective and faster to install when compared to natural slate. The right material for the job depends on the individual house and where it is situated. As we have completed countless roofing jobs across Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Jersey and Guernsey, we are able to provide you with the correct information as to which material is most suitable.
Manmade slates are generally cheaper and lighter in weight than natural slates. With our excellent range of manmade slates (which are all produced to BS EN 492), we can achieve the look of natural roofing slates without spending as much money. We install many types of manmade slates from Marley Eternit, Cembrit and Redland.
Manmade slates are made from a variety of materials, such as fibre cement and slate dust mixed with resin. We install many fibre cement slates from manufacturers such as Marley Eternit and Cembrit, who provide a great choice of styles and colours. We can of course provide you with the help and information you need to make the right choice.
Resin-based manmade slates are generally a more expensive option that can cost as much as natural slate, but can last for up to 60 years. As these slates are designed to interlock we can produce some great visual effects with them, and they are suitable for roof pitches as low as 15 degrees.
As you can see, there are many options, and we are well placed to advise you the customer on which material is best for the job that we will be undertaking for you.
