Slates and Tiles | What’s the Difference?

Unless you’re a roofer, builder or architect, you may not know the difference between slates and tiles. This is because, in many ways, they are quite similar. There’s not a huge difference in their appearance, and our roofing contractors lay them in comparable ways. Once installed, they also perform the same job.

However, if you’re planning a roof replacement in the coming months, or even the installation of a brand-new roof, it’s important that you’re aware of the differences before making a final decision.

The biggest distinction between slate and tile roofing is that the former is a natural material while the latter undergoes manufacture. However, you can still purchase artificial slate roofing which mimics the look of the natural option, but at a cheaper price.

As a naturally occurring material, suppliers quarry slate directly from the ground. Of course, there’s only a finite amount of this material, so slate roofing requires a larger budget than human-made options. However, the authentic aesthetic delivers unmatched charm and character, especially on period and rustic properties.

In comparison, the manufacture of clay or concrete tiles involves firing in a kiln. This process creates a wider variety of colour and style options. As such, tiles may hold more appeal if you have a specific design effect or colour scheme in mind.

As a manufactured product, roof tiles tend to have a lower cost per square metre when compared with slate, making them more appealing for tighter budgets.

Of equal importance, both slate and tile roofing options have outstanding durability. While natural slate has more longevity, both materials will provide resilient protection against the elements for many years to come.
