Mr & Mrs Ratcliffe – Eccles
I met with Mr & Mrs Ratcliffe back in January to have a look at a number of jobs including a new conservatory, new roof and new kitchen. We are currently finishing up on the roof and the kitchen is also underway, photos will be up soon. When i spoke to John and his family it was put to me that they wanted a composite roof tile that looks just like natural slate but is in fact a man made composite. They shown me a sample of something similar and it was left with me to source the tiles they were after. A few weeks later we returned armed with samples we had aquired from one of our roofing suppliers. Having shown the family the sample (which they liked) it was agreed that this was the tile that would be fitted. New fascias and gutters were also wanted to the front and rear of the main roof. We are re-roofing the rear extension also but the fascia and gutter on the extension are virtually new so will remain intact. We have took a few close ups of the tile so you can see the detail on the composite slates. Very impressive in my opinion. Not the cheapest option (by far) but a very impressive option all the same. They are fixed top and bottom which also prevents any blowback from high winds blowing up the roof.
