Fibre Cement Slates
Fibre cement slates are an economical solution to basic roof slates. They are an attractive alternative for those specifying slate or cladding. Original slates can sometimes break easily due to bad types of weather. When it comes to fibre cement slates, each slate is riveted down to prevent wind entering the underneath and making the slate weak.

If you're in need of a new roof, you should also consider the rest of your roofline, which is typically the fascias, soffits, cladding, bargeboards and guttering. Soffits are the boards underneath the fascias that 'plug' the gap between the wall of your property and your fascia boards. It's advisable to replace your fascias, soffits and guttering at the same time as having your new roof replaced as this will save you the cost of putting up separate scaffolding to and access equiptment to replace them at a later date. If your current UPVC Fascias, Soffits, Cladding, Bargeboards and Guttering are in adequate condition at the moment, this will not be necessary.
If you have an existing chimney stack that is not in use, this can be removed. If we do this at the same time we are building your new roof, this can be typically be done fairly inexpensively. However, if it is in need of repair, chimney stacks may need repointing with new materials to retain their stability.
Roof lights and Velux Windows
If you've considered installing a roof light or Velux windows to bring natural light into your loft space or even through your loft into another room, it's also a good idea economically to get these done while the access equipment is already in place and we are currently working on your new roof.
