Collyweston Slate


When it comes to roofing, there are plenty of choices of materials for you to use. One popular option is Collyweston Slate. Collyweston stone slates are named thanks to the village of Collyweston in Northamptonshire.
Heavier than traditional slates, installing this particular material means that it gets smaller with every course. It is a popular choice and is definitely an approach that we love to offer, press here to get an instant quote.
But why do we think it makes for a great choice, and what should you know about
Collyweston Slate Roofing?


There are several reasons why you may want to pick Collyweston Slates for your roof. The first is the length of time that is going to last. It is thought that this particular roofing material will only need repairing once every one hundred and fifty years. If they are well-maintained, then you can expect your roof to last not only your lifetime but generations to come too.
Another reason to install these slates is that they look gorgeous, too; they give any home a real sense of country style, which is incredibly eye-catching.
Collyweston slates are also resistant to fire and can withstand high temperatures; they make for the ideal safe covering for your home, protecting your family inside. They reduce the amount of waste produced too, which means that you are protecting your planet as best you can.


Are you thinking about installing Collyweston Slating in your home? If you are, then the chances are that you will want to know more about how we do this.
The first thing that we do is strip down the roof, we want to make sure that we have the perfect base for your property, and at this time, we may also replace the battons. Once we have everything stripped back, we will start to place felt on the exposed structure. This will ensure that your roof remains watertight.
To attach the slates to your roof, we will drill a hole into each tile. The slates will also be ordered into different size groups, matching them up ready to be installed. Once they are ready, we will measure the depth of the roof using a rod and then start to apply the wooden strips that are going to hold the slates to the roof correctly.
Then, we attach the slates. To do this, first, we lay a mortar bed down before attaching every slate one by one. We will do this to create a lip, which allows any heavy rainfall to run off the roof and protect your home against damp and leaks.
