Slating and Tiling
in Bishops Stortford, Saffron Walden and Across Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk

High-Quality Modern Replacements

Aside from thatch, the most common heritage roofing materials are tiles and slates. These materials were built to last, and many vintage properties still have the original Welsh slate or clay tiles that were installed at the time of construction.

While the slates are hard-wearing enough to survive for centuries, the bonding materials can deteriorate or suffer from storm and impact damage and may need replacing. At Heritage UK, we provide our valued customers with high-quality modern replacements for their vintage slates and tiles – each produced to meet the same robust standards as the originals.

Slating Specialists in Bishops Stortford and Saffron Walden

Most heritage roofs use Welsh slate, as this was a popular roofing material throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. We can provide high-quality Welsh slates to replace broken or missing tiles, using traditional roofing techniques that produce results in keeping with the rest of your vintage roof.

Tiling Services in Bishops Stortford and Saffron Walden

While clay tiles are still in use as roofing materials across the UK, they differ somewhat from their vintage counterparts. As experienced heritage roofers, we are able to source clay tiles of the highest quality from trusted suppliers. These tiles are produced to a similar standard and composition as traditional roofing tiles, resulting in a better fit with your existing roof.

Quality Materials

All our roofing work is performed using the very best in vintage materials and techniques, and our slating and tiling services are no different. We source all new slates and tiles from trusted suppliers who specialise in heritage roofing components. Made from the highest-grade slate and clay, respectively, they are fitted with skill and precision by our talented crew of roofers.

Full Slate and Tile Replacements

Sometimes it’s not a question of removing or replacing a few missing slates or tiles. Sometimes, you want the entire roof replaced with a new one while retaining the same quality and aesthetic appeal of your vintage roof. As Heritage UK, we can install a brand new roof for you, using the same high standard of slates and tiles. Visit our New Roofs page for more details.
