MLR Slate Roofing specialises in all slate roofing repairs, new slate roofs, slate roof restorations including heritage slate roof restorations for heritage-listed buildings.

Our selection of high quality materials is the basis upon which our reputation for quality is built. Products that are renowned for quality and durability to truly stand the test of time.

Welsh Perhyn (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
Colour-fast, non-fading
Aesthetically pleasing

Glendyne

Glendyne slate originates in Quebec, Canada. It has become one of the world’s most impressively used roofing material. It is dark grey in colour with tones of blue, it adds a touch of elegance and notability to buildings and increase their beauty and market value. Using such natural slate for roofing purposes offers numerous advantages. This material requires no special maintenance and can last well over 75 years.

SSQ Del Carmen

SSQ Del Carmen roofing slate, with its distinctive faintly-rippled riven texture, deep blue-black colour and characteristic longitudinal grain, will crown your building in truly spectacular style.

An exclusive slate from the Del Carmen quarry in the Cabrera Mountains of North-West Spain, it is consistently hand picked by architects around the world for its unrivalled beauty and exceptional high quality. The unique colour is totally natural and will not fade, even in the strongest sunlight.

Unlike other slate brands, every Del Carmen slate comes from the same uninterrupted seam of high quality stone. Other brands may substitute slates from different quarries and different seams – when it comes to Del Carmen, there are no substitutes.

We know that you need to be able to rely on the roofing slate you select to be consistent in terms of quality, effectiveness and sheer beauty… and with Del Carmen, that’s exactly what you get.

Trusted At The Highest Level
Del Carmen is proven to be of such consistently high quality that it is one of the few imported slates that has, in the past, been accepted for use as an alternative to indigenous material by English Heritage and Historic Scotland, the leading authorities charged with preserving Britain’s landmark structures, such as Buckingham Palace and the British Museum.

Often thought, globally, to be more desirable than Welsh slate because of its darker colour, Del Carmen is also certified for use in the Snowdonia National Park area of North Wales as well as by the French authorities (and the French know a thing or two about slate given that over 80% of global slate production goes there!).

Guaranteed To Outlive The Building
When it comes to choosing what to put on your roof, there should be no risks involved. That’s why we bear all the risk and guarantee your Del Carmen roof for up to 100 years. With the average lifetime of a building being considerably less than that – your roof is guaranteed by SSQ to outlive the building.
