Standard slates

 

We can provide slates in a box with up to approx 1 ton quantity per box.

A 1 ton box covers approx 15 - 16 m2 laid with a 3" head lap.

The slates come without holes.

 

Holed slates

 

These slates arrive at your project the same as the standard slates but they are single head holed in the slates ready for sizing on site with your competent slater who has the knowledge to calculate the gauging and setting out of the roof

Holed slates sorted to length

 

All slates holed and sorted to approximate lengths (for instants 125mm - 250, 251 - 400 and 401 - 525) and boxed delivered to site. This allows for slightly quicker sorting times prior to the slater setting out the marking rod for each elevation.

Holed slates sorted to length and the roof set out for lathing

 

All slates holed and sorted to lengths and boxed delivered to site in size order. The roof is set out to suit the slate lengths made using a marking rod. All measurements are sent to site prior to the slates so your slater can lath the roof prior to the slates arriving. 

This speeds the process up on site as the holing and sorting into lengths has been achieved. 

We would need some basic information to be able to carry out this service. This is our most popular requested service due to ease of setting out the initial work.

Slates specially made to order for your project

 We can produce slates to closely match those on your original project. We would need detailed information for this service and most clients have our consultant to record the roof prior to starting the manufacturing.

 

 

Consultancy  

 

We can carry out a complete survey of your project working direct with the client or with the surveyor or architect. We can then give advice  on how to re-slate and the type of slate required for the project.
