Slate and tiled roofs are two of the most common types of roof used on houses Newcastle upon Tyne. Tiled and slate roofs use a layered effect with an undersheet to keep out any water and to provide dedicated, effective insulation for the top of your building. They are also pleasing to look at, as a well-built tiled roof can add a classic finish to a new build or renovation.
While they are quite similar in some ways, slate roofing is competitively priced but offers a greater degree of quality roofing. Paying slightly more for slate or tiled roofing can also significantly extended the lifespan of both the interior and exterior of your property.
Slate roofing comes in a variety of types and colours, from Welsh to Spanish. It uses natural stone nailed onto a set backboard to create a unique layered effect. While it can take longer to install, slate roofing is usually easy to maintain and repair as it is durable. It is also naturally resistant to water, which can add a good degree of insulation to your building.
Tiling is similar, but typically uses terracotta, concrete, or a synthetic material for tiles. It is extremely common across the world as a roofing material due to its versatility. Much like slate, a tiled roof is fully waterproof, has a high degree of integrity, and will take a long time to decay and break if it is properly maintained. It is also slightly easier and cheaper to install, due to the tiles being set rather than hammered.
