Fibre Cement Slates
Modern fibre cement slates offer an attractive, easy-to-fit alternative to traditional, quarried slate. The big attraction for most buyers is the lower cost, but there are other important advantages to consider.
We stock fibre cement slate from two of the biggest names in the business: Cembrit and Marley. Our fibre cement slate is all pre-drilled – if you’ve ever had to drill a few hundred slates you’ll know what a time-saver this is. Man-made slate has a uniform depth and size, without the chips and flaking edges – the finish is superb! Finally there’s the weight – FC slates are simply easier to lug around the site.
So you’re thinking, which is best, Cembrit or Marley? Technically, both products have a similar (top-class) specification in both performance and BRE ‘Green Guide’ potential. While Cembrit may have a tiny price advantage, Marley have tiles suitable for a low-pitch, 15º roof.
We even stock our own brand of FC tiles with 15º pitch specification, directly equivalent to Marley Thrutone!
In addition to stocking a wide range of artificial slate tiles, Ashbrook Roofing supplies all fixtures and fittings including copper nails and copper disc rivets. Along with a fantastic choice of breather membranes, you can buy your complete roof in one easy step.
