Slate is one of the most common roofing materials and we regularly install various types of slate including:

  • Natural Slate
  • Artificial Slate
  • Reclaimed Slate

French Roofing are able to offer very competitive solutions in all slate products, we only purchase and use materials that meet our very high standards while our team of exceptionally skilled and experienced professionals work to enhance your building project and create a timeless, natural appearance.

Natural Slate is particularly suited as a roofing material as it has an extremely low water absorption index of less than 0.4%. Its low tendency to absorb water also makes it very resistant to frost damage and breakage due to freezing.

It has a capability to withstand the most extreme environmental and weather conditions. The durability and unique natural beauty of Slate has lead to the specification of the material in a broad range of roofing applications.

The durability of this aesthetically pleasing material means that it can contribute considerably to a building’s whole life costs. A slate roof will last the lifetime of the building, if laid correctly. As a natural product it also features in a variety of colours, sizes and textures to enhance the overall visual effect and complement anything it is used on.
