When re-roofing buildings it is often difficult to reproduce the sizes, colours and patterns of previous slates because of closure of many traditional quarries and the high cost of using non-standard slate sizes. This can make it difficult to obtain planning consent or grant aid for repair work.
Here at SlateScape, we can reproduce the size, shape, thickness and textural features of the original material at a very competitive cost, helping you to combine high quality conservation with technically sound and economical construction.
We can supply large non-standard slates – known as ‘rag or ‘ton’ slates – as well as diminishing courses, fixed widths and also fully random size slates. The non-intrusive colours of Slatescape slate makes a perfect blend with most traditional materials, from Cornish granite to Cotswold stone. At the same time, the variegated colour of our slate displays all the liveliness and charm of natural slate, and the lightness of shade enables individual slate patterns to be displayed at their best advantage.
With SlateScape you can combine historical accuracy with technical performance, beauty, economy and speed. Whatever your project, from Grade 1 buildings downwards, simply ask us and we will do our utmost to oblige.
