Fibre Cement Slate - Kent




A specialist supplier of both natural and fibre cement slates, has supplied fibre cement slates for the re-roofing of a property in the heart of Folkestone, Kent. This refurbishment required a new roof to complement the existing exterior design and fibre cement slates provided the perfect combination of a traditional yet fresh appearance.

The 2,500 fibre-cement slates were installed on this large five storey property by local contractor, John Williams & Company. With the roof featuring slopes at different pitches with a number of hips, the new slates needed to be easy to cut to sit securely on these various details. The fibre cement slates perfectly fitted the bill. Available in 3 standard sizes with 60x60cm and 50x50cm, fibre cement slates allow even the most complex of roofs to be installed in compliance with British Standard Codes of Practise and Building Regulations. 

Shaun Howland, Estimator at John Williams & Company says “this project was originally specified with a different company; however we specifically requested the company who manufactures these particular slates as we are familiar with the range and knew that the lightweight slates would be perfect for this job.

Fibre cement slates are compatible with the most common building materials and are finished with a high quality, semi-matt acrylic coating which is applied to both faces and all edges. They are made in accordance with a quality assurance system to ISO 9001 and to the requirements of BS EN 492 product specification for fibre cement slates and their fittings.
