NATURAL SLATES & CLAY TILES
The slates that you choose for your roof are critical for the way your home will look and perform. At Haldane Fisher, we offer a specialist roofing advice service and can supply you with details of all the products currently available. When you have narrowed down your selection, we can also tell you of build projects where your chosen product has been used, preferably a number of years ago - to enable you to see its impact in situ.
Accessories can be used to make your roof individual, such as finials, ornamentals and hanging tiles. When selecting your slates, it is important to check the availability of suitable accessories as well as ridges, hips and ventilating tiles.
Sample slates can be supplied - we can arrange for them to be delivered directly to you or your local planning department. Guttering channels rainwater from the roof and is available in a choice of materials, shapes, colours and finishes from leading brands such as Tegral Slates.
Important considerations when choosing your roofing material are:
• Size of slate/tile
• Future availability of replacement tiles/slates for minor repairs
• Colour and colour fastness
• Weathering characteristics
• Predominant roofing material in the area
• Compliance with British Standards
• Manufacturer’s Guarantee
• Appropriateness for the architectural style of house
