A Guide To Brazilian Slate

submitted on 27 July 2021 by yateslate.co.uk
Brazilian slate is a roofing material that has been used in the UK for over 100 years. It can be found on properties across the country, and with it's unique combination of different colors, textures and shades, it provides homeowners with an attractive option to modern day roofing materials. This blog post will highlight some features of Brazilian slate, including benefits such as being fire resistant and lightweight - perfect for sloped roofs!

Brazilian Slate Benefits
The benefits of Brazilian slate are that it is fire resistant, lightweight and easy to work with. This material is perfect for sloped roofs because it can be cut to any size.

The major difference between Brazilian slate and other roofing materials in the UK, such as Welsh slates or clay tiles, is that they are more heavy duty than this one but with no significant differences in price! Brazilian slate has a different texture too - worlds apart from your traditional roofing materials like terracotta which provides homeowners with more variety when deciding on their property's exterior appearance.

For those looking to purchase a new shed or summerhouse, Brazilian Slate could also make an excellent choice of building material thanks to its durability and natural beauty. It requires very little maintenance work compared to some surfaces so would probably be worth considering if you're not too confident about maintaining your property in the long-term.

Another benefit of Brazilian Slate is that it's not too expensive - which means you can fit a new roof on to any budget! A lot of people are surprised when they hear how low the price actually is for something with such high quality, but there again, you're getting what you pay for and Brazilian Slate always delivers.

On top of this, there are plenty more qualities worth considering: It has natural colour variations due to its mineral content so no two slates will ever be exactly alike; The material itself comes from quarries mined deep within Brazil meaning that transportation isn't an issue; and it's incredibly durable - meaning you'll be able to keep your roof for a long time!

If that hasn't convinced you yet, there are also more features worth looking into: It can resist hail damage because of the natural minerals used in its composition; it is resistant to fire due to being made from natural materials so no toxic by-products will pollute your environment if something were ever to happen.

Brazilian slate is a great choice for roofing projects all over the world, so if you're in need of some new slates to replace your old ones or are planning on building up from scratch then Brazilian slates are definitely the way to go!
