New Natural Slate Roof – Pros and Cons

As a homeowner that is in the process of building a new slate roof, you may be facing the same question as thousands before you. Why should you use natural slate instead of man-made roof slate?

When it comes to natural slate, there are a number of factors that you should consider, including aesthetics, durability, and life expectancy.

Today, we will be taking an in-depth look at the pros and cons of a new natural slate roof, as well as some of the different types of natural and man-made slate that you can use in the construction of your roof.


Natural slate has a natural beauty and offers exceptional aesthetic appeal to a house, especially in comparison to man-made slate and commercial roofing materials.

It is also completely durable. This is important when taking the house’s entire life cost into account as natural slate can stay on your roof for the lifetime of your house. It is the perfect building material for a roof as it is resistant to fire, extreme temperatures, and discoloration due to acids and chemicals.


A natural slate roof repair can be costly in terms of materials and labour. At Roofers Dublin, we also offer fibre cement slate, an economical and high-quality alternative to natural slate. More on this later.

Natural Slate

As a roofing material, natural slate is widely regarded as the best option there is. Apart from its durability and longevity, natural slate is also reusable and is the most ecological option for roofs. Natural slate also allows for versatility and works well with any architectural type and design.

Fibre Cement Slate

If you require the benefits that a natural slate roof has to offer but don’t have the budget, consider using fibre cement slate. It is a highly-developed substitute to natural slate that offers a uniform finish, cost-effective installation, as well as solid durability. You can also choose from a wide variety of colours and textures, which allows for optimal aesthetics.

Reclaimed Natural Slate

It is well-known that natural slate has a long lifetime. Since the durability and aesthetic appeal of natural slate don’t depreciate over time, homeowners with a sense of environmental awareness may find reclaimed natural slate to be a valid alternative. Reclaimed natural slate is also an affordable option to restore an existing natural slate roof.

We suffered some damage to our roof during the recent windy weather. Within a few hours Sean and his team had arrived to sort it out for us. Wonderful service.

I only had a small job to do. Just one broken tile. But it was no problem, they came out and fixed it in a very short time. I’d recommend Roofers Dublin to anyone.
