Advantages of Cedral roofs


Advantages of Cedral roofs

  • Size and quality uniformity; fibre cement slates are uniform in both size and quality; unlike natural slates which can suffer from inconsistent grading, size and thickness.

  • Strong and practical;  Fibre cement is lighter than clay, concrete and natural slates and has the advantage of being thinner whilst holding the same strength properties.

  • Lightweight; due to their lightweight, fibre cement slates do not require a heavy load bearing roof construction, which means less timber is required for the structure.

  • Efficient installation; Cedral slates are pre holed which supports efficient installation, less breakages and easy to work with.
