For centuries, slate roofing has been desired for its durability and beauty. British Board of Agrément (BBA)-certified TapcoSlate combines this with practicality and enhanced performance for a beautiful roof that won’t break or delaminate. It is the ideal product for a conservatories, new build, self-build and refurbishment, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
Lightweight, TapcoSlate can be used on pitches upwards of 14 degrees, is easy to install with a nail gun or hammer, and can be cut with a fine-toothed saw or sharp utility knife. Overall roof costing is very competitive; experienced roofers claim at least a 20% time saving on installation.
TapcoSlate has pre-marked nailing areas, pitch exposure guides, and horizontal spacers to ensure an accurate, fast and even installation – no time-consuming sorting, clipping, drilling, and very little wastage. Total dry-fix roof accessories include mechanically-fixed ridge caps, the RidgeMaster roof ventilating system, slate vents, and dry verge.
TapcoShake is a maintenance-free synthetic roof shake/shingle, with none of the notorious rotting that natural cedar often regularly shows. Instead, the roof is extremely durable and fire risk is minimised with our top-level Class A fire resistance, especially noteworthy for communities prohibiting cedar roofs or requiring Class A roofing systems.
TapcoShake’s proprietary finishing delivers delicate shade variations with authenticity that is harmonious and natural to the eye. Our shakes’ sublime, unified colour is factory-collated along with the correct proportions of our 10” (254mm), 7.5” (190mm) and 5” (127mm) shake widths to give you the ideal shake roof.
