The timeless charm and beauty of slate means it continues to be a popular choice for old and new properties. It is a common site on houses and pubs as well as various other domestic and commercial structures. At KA Roofing, we meet the needs of all building types.
The visual appeal of slate is not the only reason it has remained a go-to roofing material for centuries.
Of course, one of the benefits of slate is that it comes in a wide range of textures, thicknesses and colours. As such, KA Roofing can build new slate roofs to perfectly complement your property and suit your tastes.
Welsh slate is regarded as the finest slate in the world, but quality slate is also available from regions of England, notably Devon and Cornwall. Slate can also be sourced from overseas but different mineral content to UK slate can affect the performance of imported slate. For example, we do not recommend Chinese or Brazilian slate for properties in coastal regions because these slates are not suitable for the severe weather conditions.
The colour of slate roofing ranges from blues and greys to reds, browns, greens and purples. When carrying out repairs, we source matching materials to ensure a seamless finish. We can also source matching materials for roof replacements. For new roofs, our team will create your desired look, which can mean mimicking slate roofs of nearby properties.
KA Roofing always uses high-standard slate for jobs in York, Tadcaster and the surrounding areas. This includes ensuring slates meet BS EN 12326 and have a CE mark. Slate is categorised and graded in numerous ways and we ensure products have the correct attributes to provide superior performance and longevity.
Factors which affect quality and which slate is tested for include water absorption, carbonate content and pyrite content.
