Description

Made from a combination of pure polypropylene and virgin limestone, this pack of twenty-five Brick Red coloured TapcoSlate Synthetic Slate Roof Tiles delivers a robust, lightweight and affordable synthetic roofing solution, perfect for modern and heritage homes. Also suitable for conservatory and garage roofs, these tiles boast an authentic slate-like texture with a rich and warm Brick Red finish, giving your project a bold and vibrant appearance.

Each slate features a production-induced camber to help protect your slates from wind uplift and also help them to follow your roof's contours when installing. They are easy to handle and can be fixed using a traditional hammer and nail method or a nail gun. Thanks to their synthetic, recyclable construction, they ensure no breakages, wastage, drilling or sorting is required.
