SIGA slate offers true Welsh alternative

SIGA Slate was selected for the renovation of Hounds Road, a private residential property in Chipping Sodbury, Bristol.

In total, around 4,200 500×250 slates were laid over a 210mý area on an old stone farmhouse and storage building by Cains Building Services of Kingswood, Bristol.

Hounds Road is in an area where roofing materials require Welsh Park Conservation Officer approval, and SIGA 32 was chosen as an approved alternative to the Welsh slate originally used in the area.

Due to the type of building being renovated, longevity of the slate was also an essential prerequisite in the decision making process. SIGA 32 provided this due to its 75-year warranty, which is backed by SIG.

The company says its SIGA 32 is one of the strongest, hardest slates available from Spain and combines excellent durability with a rugged, natural texture. The product is available in two different thicknesses and is suitable for all parts of the UK.

Carl Butcher, who was the client on the project, said: “The slate perfectly complements not only the local area but also the timber windows on the building, which were supplied by SIG.”

With warranties of up to 75 years on selected ranges, SIGA slate says it offers the widest range of true A1T1S1 slates, carefully tailored for each part of the UK, and available nationwide. A popular choice with homeowners, self-builders and developers, the SIGA Specification range of slates meet NHBC requirements and provide a selection of high-quality first-selection slates, covering a broad range of colours and textures to fulfil almost any specification desired.
