Roof Slating and Tiling

 

We take pride in being able to re-roof any type of slate or tiled roof. Our roofers are used to working with diminishing courses, random widths, in stone tiles, clay tiles and natural slates. Having carpenters, masons, leadworkers and a metal fabricators in house means if we find problems below or around the roof covering, we can take remedial action quickly and easily without delay.
