Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

However MLR Slate Roofing strives to ensure all our projects are complete by the estimated completion dates, weather permitting.

The duration of your roofing project depends on a number of factors. Firstly, the scale of your roofing project. The larger the roofing area the longer it takes to tile. Depending upon what type of slate you prefer there may be the need to factor in supply chain. The arrangement of materials, heritage reports, etc can also delay the start of your roofing project.

Actual roofing time on site could be anywhere from 2 weeks for a relatively small repair job, to several months on a larger roof.
The average is a few weeks on a new slate roof. Complex and/or heritage roofing projects typically take much longer.
