Slate Roofing & Tiling


When it comes to slate roofing, the team at Young & Co. are well experienced in providing tailored solutions to your roofing needs. Our modern and holistic approach to providing a safe and durable roof is the reason why we have become leaders in the roofing industry in Manchester.

A Roof is more exposed to the effects of rain, snow, solar radiation and atmospheric pollution, than any other part of a building. Traditional pitched roof coverings such as tiles and slates are serviceable for many years whilst some flat roof coverings have a shorter life.

Pitched roofing has a high rate of runoff, provided that the detailing of laps and jointing is adequate, the materials on pitched roofs can have a long life.

Slates and tiles provide a semi-permeable barrier to rain, snow and wind and used in conjunction with an internal layer of impervious felt or sheet material are completely weather-proof.
