Slates & Tiling

Slates and tiles are two popular materials used for roofing. Both are durable and long-lasting, but they have some distinct differences.

Roof repairs

Roof repairs refer to the process of fixing or maintaining a roof to prevent leaks, damage, or other issues.

New Roofs

Whether you need roof repairs, maintenance or a new roof, Complete Roofing is who you need to call.

Flat Roof Repairs

Flat roof repairs refer to the process of fixing or maintaining a flat roof to prevent leaks, damage, or other issues.

Leaking gutter repairs

A leaking gutter is a common issue that can cause significant damage to a home or building if not addressed promptly.

Slate is a natural rock that is quarried and cut into thin, flat pieces. It is a durable and long-lasting roofing material that can last for more than a century.

It is also resistant to fire and rot, and it requires little maintenance. However, slate is a heavy material and requires a strong roof structure to support it. It is also more expensive than other roofing materials.

Tiles are produced from either concrete or clay and are available in a wide range of designs and colours, which makes them more suited to modern houses than slates. Whether you choose concrete or clay tiles, the tiles will have a life expectancy of 50 years and will be of equal durability and resistance.

The best way to protect your slate or tile roof is to know what you are dealing with and conduct regular inspections that are essential to spot and tackle problems before they get worse, and your repair cost escalates. If the issue requires professional help then you can trust the roof repair or re-slate to a reputable roofer such as Complete Roofing Southeast. Whether we will need to repair or re-slate a roof really depends on the extent of the deterioration.

Both slates and tiles are great options for roofing, but it will depend on the area’s weather conditions, the cost, and the aesthetic of the building.
