From Historic Slate Roofs To Modern Tiled Roofs

Edinburgh’s roofscape is truly unique, combining as it does, modern buildings, refurbished buildings, historic buildings and listed buildings. In a City with a mix of old and new architecture, the skyline contributes to its look and feel and is an integral part of its unique character. It’s essential your roofing contractor can work on all these different roof types. We do just that. With vast experience installing and repairing roofs in the city, we have worked on every type of roof on the Edinburgh skyline, while ensuring our work and the materials we use fit the unique character of the surrounding area.

We provide roofing services to fit the ‘look & feel’ of Edinburgh’s roofscape. When it comes to re-roofing your property, we will not only be able to do the job with ease, but also guide you in the important decision on what type of roofing material to use on your roof. We have 30+ years’ experience in roofing with traditional natural slate tiles and lead in the older parts of Edinburgh and in roofing with modern clay and concrete tiles in Edinburgh’s newer suburban housing areas. Depending on requirements, we also work with modern roof tiles made to look like traditional slate tiles.

We can work at a height with rope & harness, cherry pickers and / or scaffolding. All our work is guaranteed. Choosing to re-roof can involve refreshing what you already have or choosing something different. If you want to go with the latter, finding materials that fit in with the roofscape of your area is crucial to your property, continuing to contribute look & feel of the neighbourhood. You don’t want your house to be the odd one out! We can also advise about any regulations that may apply to a change of roofing material to avoid any problems with the local authority down the line.

The Difference Between Natural Slate and Modern Roofing Tiles

Slate is a natural stone, whereas tiles are manufactured, either from clay or concrete. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. If you want a natural, authentic look to suit an older property – choose slate. While initially more expensive than tile, longevity is increased and repair costs tend to be lower. Unless your property is listed and must be roofed in slate, or is part of a slate roofed tenement where new roofing must match the existing roofing material, the choice between slate and tile comes down to personal preference and budget. We can help you make an informed decision on what best meets your individual needs.
