Slate has been used as a roofing material for over 1000 years. Created by the forces of nature over 500 million years ago, this historic product continues to be the material of choice for the world's most prestigious and treasured buildings. As it is a natural product, no two pieces are exactly alike. Slight variations will occur in texture, thickness, and shading. The subtle textures and distinctive colours of slate will provide the crowning touch to any architectural design.

A natural slate roof will not only add value to your home, but also protect it for over a century from the most demanding climate conditions. The longevity and beauty of a slate roof makes it a wise investment for the homeowner.
