Frequently Asked Questions

Slate Roofing Bath

How long will a slate roof last?

With proper fitting and maintenance, a natural slate roof can last over 100 years. Quality and thickness impact longevity. We use slate rated for 75-200 year lifespans, offering the best in quality slate roofing for your Bath property.

 Is slate roofing expensive?

While slate is more expensive upfront than asphalt or metal roofing, it lasts much longer, offering excellent value for money. We also provide transparent price breakdowns and flexible financing options available to offset initial costs.

How often does a slate roof need repairs?

Slate roofs are very low maintenance. In most cases, they may just need minor repairs like replacing a few damaged slates every decade or so if properly installed and maintained. Our expert team can assess your roof during an inspection.

Does my existing roof need to be torn off to install slate?

Usually not. Slate is lightweight so it can often be put over your existing roof, saving both time and money. However, we will properly assess the condition of your existing roof and advise if a tear-off is required.

How long does it take to set up a slate roof?

Installation time depends on factors like roof size, pitch, accessibility, and weather, but most projects take 2-6 weeks from start to finish. Our highly skilled team, including Lee and his team, schedules efficiently to minimise disruption.

Will you match my existing slate?

Absolutely. We source a variety of slate tiles available to closely match your existing roof for seamless repairs and replacements. We want your new roof to look uniform and complement the natural beauty of your Bath home.
