Slate options

Recommended Posts

Part of my refurb will require a Re-roof.

Most of the properties in the area (Lake District) appear to be natural slate, however all of these roofs look very stained and I would like to maintain a clean uniform look.

Can this be achieved with slate or any of the artificial options?

I often work in the Lake District 

Local councils are pretty keen 

So more than likely they will tell you to use a Westmorland slate 

Whilst there not cheap They are superior quality to the majority of imported slate 

and should give you little or no trouble

Planning haven’t specified our roof type so this isn’t a problem.

even the Westmorland slate roofs I have looked at appear dirty / stained, it probably the amount of rain and associated moss and stuff.

if you have no planning restrictions A dark grey Spanish slate will show environmental staining less 

and come in at half the price of Westmoreland
