European slate has been used in Australia since the early 19th century. In 1840, slate was discovered in South Australia and was soon exported to Victoria and NSW, where it was also later discovered. Welsh Penrhyn slate arrived in Sydney almost 200 years ago and has since been widely accepted as a superior roofing material in NSW and across Australia, mostly due to its suitability to Australia’s hot and dry weather.
Welsh slate, which has been used for centuries around the world, is renowned for its durability and quality. It is well known that Welsh slate roofs last over 100 years, long after the roof timbers supporting them have failed. Slate is waterproof and unaffected by normal extremes of temperature. This combination of quality and aesthetics makes Welsh slate roofing a sought-after roofing material for heritage and prestigious projects in Sydney and throughout NSW.

Slate is a fine-grained rock that formed some 400-600 million years ago from compacted sedimentary clay deposits in ancient seas. Slate is composed of two lines of breakability: cleavage and grain. These lines of breakability make it possible to split slate into the thin sheets used in slate roofing.
Slate has long been a favourite of Builders and Architects because of its aesthetic and natural properties and durability. It is highly resistant to acids, chemicals and temperature extremes. It does not fade and is non-porous. Slate has been used worldwide for thousands of years.
Welsh Penrhyn roofing slate sets the benchmark for all natural roofing slates, and we are proud to offer this option amongst our range of quality roofing options. For more information or an obligation free quote, call our friendly team today!
