Slate Roof Construction
Slate is a beautiful, natural material for a new roof – it looks great and can last a long time, so can often be a very cost-effective choice long-term.
In order to get the most out of a slate roof however, it’s critically important that it is installed properly at the outset, and that’s where our experience and expertise can make a lot of difference.
Slating is an artform – cutting the slate, placing it, installing the flashing and ensuring that it will be watertight is no job for an amateur. As a fully qualified member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen, Martin from Shepherd Roofing & Slating is one of Fife’s best qualified and experienced slaters.
At any stage of your project, we’ll be happy to discuss the options available to you. As slate is a natural material, it is available is a lot of different shades and colours – we can advise on the different options and related costs.
It’s important to get us involved in your building plan as early as possible, as natural slate can be a relatively heavy roofing material, and we would want to ensure that the plans for your new building or extension reflect that.
Give us a call now, or fill out our contact form and we’ll get in touch to arrange a meeting to discuss your project and the slating options available.
