Traditional Slating

Naturally attractive, quality pitched roofing

Roofing slates are manufactured from natural stone that is formed under intense heat and pressure underground. They are therefore very hard, inherently fire-proof and will not saturate with water. Since slate is stone, it is also impervious to weather, sunlight and changes in temperature, and can therefore be expected to last a very long time.

Because of its longevity, slate is very cost effective over the lifespan of the roof. It is also resistant to mould, mildew and other sources of contamination, and maintenance costs are therefore very low. Slate roofs are very highly regarded, not only because of their naturally stunning aesthetics, but also because of their ability to add value to a property

Slate roofing can be considered as an art-form and installation should always be carried out by skilled contractors. MAC Roofing employs a number of fully trained slating craftsmen and has a wealth of experience in this area, making it the perfect choice for projects of this type.
