ELC Roofing is specialists in Slate Roofing works to new builds, listed and heritage properties.
With many different types of slates to choose from, we will endeavour to find the right slate for your property.
Laying slates to a roof isn’t as simple as just putting them on, first of all, we must ensure the roof has the correct amount of pitch to it.
Like all roofing products, slates can only be laid on roofs with a certain amount of degrees. If there is not enough pitch to a roof, there are many other products available to overcome this issue.
Slates vary in price depending on whether you would like natural slate or fibre cement slate, which is a man-made product.
Natural Slates have rougher edges to them, whereas man-made slates have very straight edges.
We also use Welsh slates which benefit from a number of highly practical properties that make it an exceptional roofing slate.
It is the most durable slate in the world with a useful and productive life.
They are waterproof and unaffected by normal extremes of temperature, highly resistant to acids, alkalis and other chemicals and is non-fading, even in UV light.
Travelling across the whole of East Anglia, we have noticed that certain counties tend to gravitate towards certain slates.
At ELC Roofing our highly experienced roofers have many years of combined experience in laying slate roofs, and we believe we are second to none when it comes to slate roofing.
It’s difficult for us to give direct quotes and prices for slipped or cracked roof tiles. This is because we need to discover the root of the problem!
A slipped tile can happen because of several things, for example, individual failures, the nibs that hold the tile might have broken off, or the nails holes have broken.
High winds are often a common reason for tiles being dislodged from the wooden batten they sit on and even corrosion of the nails.
Invite us to your property to carry out an inspection (free of charge), which will tell us the reason. From here, we’ll be able to give you an accurate, affordable quote.

Like slate roofs, tiles best work on roofs with certain degrees.
Often leaks occur when the tile is on a roof with a pitch that is too low. It is so important that the tile suits your roof.
