What is the difference between a slate roof and a tile roof?

Choosing between a slate and a tile roof depends on several factors, including budget, aesthetic preferences, and climate considerations. Slate roofs are made from natural stone, offering a luxurious and timeless appeal. They are highly durable, resistant to harsh weather conditions, and can last over a century with minimal maintenance. However, slate is heavier and requires a robust structural support system, which may increase installation costs.

Tile roofs, on the other hand, are made from concrete or clay and present a versatile and eco-friendly roofing solution. They come in a variety of shapes, colours, and styles, allowing homeowners to customise the look of their roof. Tiles are lighter than slate, making them suitable for a wide range of structures. They offer excellent durability and insulation properties, though they may not last as long as slate.

How much do they cost?

The cost of slate and tile roofs can vary widely based on the materials used, the complexity of the roof design, and regional labour costs. On average, tile roofs are more budget-friendly than slate, with concrete tiles being the most economical option. Clay tiles offer a middle ground, providing a balance of cost and aesthetic appeal.

Slate roofs, while more expensive upfront, are an investment in your home’s future. The longevity and timeless elegance of slate can enhance your home’s value and curb appeal. While the price difference of £1-2 more for a slate tile compared to a clay tile might seem minimal, however, this can significantly impact the overall cost of roofing.

How do I know if the job has been done well?

A properly installed slate or tile roof should protect your home from the elements without any signs of leaks, dampness, or damaged tiles. Here are a few indicators of quality workmanship:

  • Uniform appearance: The tiles or slates should be evenly distributed, with consistent colour and texture throughout.
  • Secure installation: There should be no loose or shifting tiles or slates, indicating that they have been properly affixed to the roof.
  • Effective water management: Look for well-integrated flashing around chimneys, vents, and valleys to prevent water infiltration.
  • No visible damage: There should be no cracks, chips, or broken tiles immediately after installation.

At Rated People, you can rely on reviews from other homeowners to choose tradespeople who consistently deliver quality work. Our guide on local roofers also offers insights into the questions you should ask before and after the project to ensure your satisfaction.

Other slate and tile roof FAQs

How long do slate roofs last?

With proper installation and maintenance, slate roofs can last over 100 years, making them one of the most durable roofing materials available.

How can you tell if a slate roof needs fixing?

Signs that your slate roof may need repairs include missing, broken, or sliding slates; visible cracks; and evidence of water leaks in your attic or upper floors.

Are slate roofs worth fixing?

Absolutely. The durability and aesthetic appeal of slate roofs often outweigh the cost of repairs, especially considering their potential to last for generations.

We made a grave error in hiring him to replace our polycarbonate conservatory roof with an insulated felt roof and 2 skylights. He is completely incompetent and has delivered substandard work. The new roof started leaking within weeks of installation due to his negligence. Furthermore, he installed oversized glass panels as skylights without securely fastening them, resulting in leaks and condensation. My strong recommendation is to steer clear of Roofline under all circumstances. His rating is dubious.
