We understand that everyone building a house wants to be sure they are getting a quality durable roof for the best price possible. With this in mind SIG Roofing offer a free estimation service which will quantify not only your slate or tile requirements but also your membrane, ventilation, roof windows, ridge tiles, fixings, etc. so you will get a price for your total roofing requirements, not just your slates or tiles. This not only gives you an idea of overall costs, but also gives you the best value possible because you are buying your complete roofing requirements from a single source.
All good builder’s merchants deal with SIG Roofing and carry part of our range. However, it has always been our belief that ‘people do business with people’ and to that end SIG Roofing are always willing to meet with architects, quantity surveyors, roofers, builders and home owners to discuss and advise on the individual requirements of each project.
No, natural slates vary greatly in terms of quality and durability. There are a few guidelines you should follow when sourcing natural slates. You should only source natural slates from reputable suppliers who have a track record in this field and who will be around in the future to deal with any issues which may arise. You should also ensure that the slate you are buying conforms to the standards laid down for natural slate, if necessary you should ask for a copy of this certification. You should know exactly what slate you are buying, what is the country and quarry of origin, how long has it been used in Ireland, where can you see it on a roof. In general, you will find that you will get what you pay for, so if you buy a cheap natural slate be advised that there is a reason it is cheap, you may be buying a problem in the years to come.
SIG Roofing have a wealth of experience built up over nearly 30 years of supplying roofing materials. Our technical department and professional sales team will be able to advise you on your project from planning right through to completion and can deal with any queries that you may have. We only supply materials from leading manufacturers which conform to the relevant standards. All our products carry a manufacturer backed guarantee, and as part of the SIG group we can offer you the peace that we will be around to deal with any issues that may arise with your roof for many years to come.
 There are a number of issues which may arise but the most common ones we have encountered are:

(1) Insufficient or no ventilation in your roof can lead to condensation which has the potential to lead to serious problems if left unchecked. The best way to avoid this is to use a top quality breather membrane such as DuPont™ Tyvek®.

(2) Natural slates discolouring, ‘spalling’ (flaking) on a roof, holes appearing etc. There are just some of the issues which can occur if poor quality natural slates are used. To avoid these problems, always follow manufacturers guidelines.

(3) Guarantees are always an issue. To protect yourself from problems with guarantees in the future you should only deal with reputable suppliers who can prove that the products they supply carry a manufacturer backed guarantee. All manufacturer backed guarantees should be available in writing to you from the manufacturer.

(4) Only use products on your roof which conform to the relevant standards laid down for the product. Remember there is a reason for these standards, and that all products on your roof are going to be exposed to the best and worst that the Irish weather has to throw at them over many years
