What is the difference between Tile and Slate roofs?

It’s best to know what you’re wanting, before choosing one of our services. That’s why we’ve put together some helpful information on the difference between tiles for roofing and slates for roofing to help give you a better understanding.

Slate and Tile Roofing

Natural slate roofing is known for being durable and often used on traditional homes to maintain the character of the period it was built. It comes in 3 main materials

  • Natural Slate
  • Artificial Slate
  • Zinc Slate

The slate being incredibly durable means the longevity of this material will be sure to last you a long time. Problems only occur through adverse weather, slates are fixed to a roof most commonly with nails, and are built up in layers. This does mean that they can ‘catch’ in high winds and become damaged but they can easily be fixed by a roofing professional. Natural slate for roofing is made of a fine-grained metamorphic rock. It’s resistant to the general wear and tears you would expect of a roof slate. With a good lifespan, natural slate provides a fantastic, low-maintenance roofing solution.

Tiles are a more cost-effective roofing solution and are found on a lot of newer homes, bungalows, and communal tenement blocks. Roofing tiles are made from either concrete or clay which means that they come in a wide range of designs and colours. These tiles are less durable than slate but are still thought to last around 50 years or so.

Tiles are generally larger than slates and can ‘interlock’ which makes them easier to install. However, for roofing that features chimney points or a skylight, smaller tiles may be needed to better fit the roofing structure. With tiles, there are more options to fit the sizes of different styles of the building.


We even provide Flat Roofs, which is another demanding option.
