With a lifespan of around 80-100 years, natural slate is a premium product that increases the value of the properties that it adorns.
In addition to its beauty, strength and durability, natural slate can also save contractors time, from purchasing the material to post installation – SIG explains how here:
1. Save Time Finding the Correct Natural Slate
When searching for a reliable supply of quality roof coverings, SIGA can provide test certificates and full traceability about where each natural slate was sourced and how best to work with the different ranges. This will allow you to make an informed decision on which covering you choose, thereby speeding up the ‘shopping around’ process and allowing you to start your project as soon as possible.
2. Save Time Sorting and Grading on Site
The next step is buying the materials. When you invest in SIGA Natural Slate, you are investing in high quality slates selected by experts, meaning you’ll spend less time sorting and grading on site. Not only does this save you project time and reduce labour costs, you can complete your project knowing that the slates are consistent in quality and wastage rates will be low. SIGA slates come in three ranges, with the Excellence Range requiring the least sorting and grading.
3. Save Time on Spares, Additions and Alterations
Once the project is complete, if the unexpected does occur, SIGA will still be there to help and save you time. Every SIGA slate can be tracked back every step of the production journey, from the quarry to the roof – and any spares required to complete the job can be sourced quickly too. If the quarry has stopped producing slate, SIGA can source similar slates to blend in with your existing slates.
4. Save Time on the Warranty Process
In addition, SIGA offers robust warranties of up to 75 years backed by SIG – a FTSE 250 organisation. With rapid and efficient logistics, you can be assured that any warranty or post-installation service required will be completed proficiently.
5. Peace of Mind
Thanks to SIGA’s procurement and quality control operation, situated in the heart of the quarry region in Spain, SIGA fully understand the quarries and the stone, and ensures longevity of supply into the UK. SIGA is available in over 110 SIG Roofing branches nationwide.
