Slate Roofing Products
Welsh Penrhyn (Heather blue)
Welsh slate has been the superior roofing material for Australian building since the early 1800’s. It benefits from a number of highly practical properties: it is exceptionally durable and is unaffected by normal extremes of temperatures, as well as being highly resistant to acids, alkalis and other chemicals. It retains its natural colour in UV light and is impermeable to water.
Welsh slate from Penrhyn, Ffestiniog in the Welsh highlands, and CWT y bugail quarries are known to produce the finest roofing slates in the world.
- Durability – 100 years plus useful productive life
