What are the benefits of blue slate roofs?




Timeless, low-maintenance and long-lasting aesthetics

Blue slate roofing is an all-natural roofing option, made from quarried metamorphic rock.

A time-tested and reliable roofing option, blue slate roofing is known for its exceptional longevity, durability and elegant finish in a range of blues, greys and blacks. This makes it an ideal option for those who want to have a roof that'll last the rest of their lives, without having to worry about frequent maintenance or an eventual reroofing.

What are the benefits of blue slate roofs?

 Incredibly long-lasting

When properly installed by experienced contractors, like our team of roofers in Glossop, you can expect a new blue slate roof to last for over 100 years and perhaps up to 200 years.

 Requires only basic maintenance

While many roofing options require frequent maintenance if they are to keep your home leak-free, blue slate roofs demand only basic inspection once a year and the occasional removal of built-up plant matter.

 Resilient against the elements

Blue slate roofing is inherently fire-resistant and durable, able to withstand anything from gale-force winds to heavy snow.

 Wonderful curb appeal

A newly-installed blue slate roof adds more than a touch of sophistication and elegance to your property, and naturally complements a wide range of architectural styles. This can often translate into a higher resale value for your home.
