Welsh Roof Slates
Here at B&M Henderson roofing company, we believe the lifetime of a building begins with the choice of materials and for hundreds of years, architects and designers have been inspired by the natural beauty of slate. Through its aesthetic potential and practical qualities this material's unique character enhances the architectural vision.
Welsh slate roofing is extracted from some of the world's finest deposits. Formed up to 590 million years ago, each piece of slate has its own unique fingerprint that reflects the power and presence of the landscapes from which it was hewn.
Welsh slate roofing is available in eight colours that reflect the true nature of beauty.These subtle and elegant colours are further complemented by the distinctive natural texture of slate, creating an added dimension to any roof whilst the variety of colours can be used to create a pattern or subtle contrast in a design. These aesthetic qualities are combined with the material's natural durability and resistance to weather and temperature, making slate superbly adaptable and ideal for all envionments. Take it from our roofing company, Welsh slates are capable of complementing any given roof.
As Welsh roof slate produces only natural products from the finest raw material each slate has its own unique visual characteristics. Heather blue and Heather red slate often feature naturally occuring markings which are usually green. In addition to the aesthetic qualities of slate, the material also benefits from a number of highly pratical properties. It is a roof slate that is exceptionally durable, unaffected by normal extremes of temperature and is highly resistant to acids, alkalis and other chemicals. It retains its colour, even in UV light and is impermeable to water. In addition, it's non-combustible and compatible with all other building materials. This roof slate is easily maintained, making it an economical choice for all building purposes and is readily available in a variety of sizes, colours and textures.
