Natural Slate Tile for your Heritage Building Roof

Natural Slate Tile

Of all the heritage building roofing materials, natural slate tile is one the most versatile and aesthetically pleasing. You will find natural slate tile on many grand historic buildings, especially government buildings and churches. You’ll also find natural slate tile on many historic homes. Natural slate tile can be expensive, but the investment pays off in the end. Slate is low-maintenance, and is both fire and frost resistant. Natural slate tile is also extremely energy efficient.

If you need a roofing repair for your heritage building roof, Roof Tile Management expertly restores and repairs natural slate tile. We select material to match your original roofing, and hand-craft slate shingles to fit the area that needs repair.

Roofing Repair or Restoration: Metal Roofing

Like natural slate tile, metal roofing is long-lasting and durable. When you think of metal roofing, you might imagine soaring copper roofing on churches and heritage government buildings. At RTM roofing, we work with a lot more metal roofing materials than just copper. Experts work in our dedicated fabrication shop with everything from copper, sheet metal, lead, stainless steel, pre-finished steel, lead-coated copper and aluminum. They create custom metal roofing shapes to replicate original pieces that need repair.

Metal roofing, like natural slate tile, is attractive and easy to maintain. They’re also fire-resistant and energy efficient and easily shed rain and snow.

Ceramic Roof Tiles

Clay or ceramic roof tiles come in a variety of shapes, textures, and colours. Ceramic roof tiles make beautifully distinctive and decorative roofs. When a roofing repair is needed on buildings with ceramic roof tiles, rtm roofing experts take extra care to match the colour and unique shaping of the tiles. Ceramic roof tiles can be fragile. When performing a tile restoration, special care needs to be taken to ensure the material both matches the original colour and that existing tiles are cracked during the restoration process.

Although durable, ceramic roof tiles do not last as long as natural slate tile. The life expectancy of ceramic roof tiles is about 50 to 80 years, as opposed to over a hundred years for natural slate tile.
