Slate is a natural choice for roofing given its unique properties and aesthetic looks. This material is durable and can have an expected lifespan of around 75 years. Compared to its artificial counterparts such as concrete tiles slate will stand the test of time.
Tiles are manufactured as a replacement to slate and were created as a cheaper alternative to using slate on your roof. The range is expansive including clay and concrete as an option with tiles and fittings readily available to purchase. You will find a complete range of tile types including interlocking and double lap tiles available from several suppliers the cost varies from tile to tile and brand to brand.
Some of our preferred suppliers are Marley Russel, Sandtotft, and Reland to name a few. Furthermore, these tiles are mainly machine made and concrete tile manufacturers have developed over the years to include various colours and finishes which can imitate the appearance of slate and other traditional roof coverings.
Available from reclamation yards are traditional reclaimed tiles these tend to be handcrafted like pantiles or french gaeilics. These are popular around the York area and we have direct access to a wide range of reclaimed tiles from The Reclaimed Company.
Looking after a roof is big responsibility you can expect a tiled roof to lastup too 50 years and require little regular maintenance if installed correctly. If you have a slate roof you can expect it to last you around 70-75 years on average and like tiled roofs require little to no maintenance if correctly installed.
GNR Roofing specialise in Lead work to roof structures. Our team of highly skilled lead workers have a fine eye for detail and can provide a unique finish.
Working on a variety of jobs our lead work is second to none. We pride ourselves on offering a bespoke service which is designed to impress and last for years to come.
Did you know? That the lead work is as equally as important as the roof covering itself! You may notice a leak in your house and assume you have a broken tile on your roof? But most people fail to realise it could actually be your lead flashing that is at fault.
Over the 30 years of trading, it is more common than not that a leaky roof is down to the lead work and not a broken tile. From lead roofs, step flashing, cover flashing or decorative bays we make sure your lead is correctly installed, dressed and pointed potentially saving you unnecessary worry and expense in the future.
Having worked with lead for many years we are well versed in what the best lead will be for your job there are many factors when dealing with lead work and roofing British and European Standards (BS EN 12588:2006) specifies thickness tolerances and chemical composition required to produce a consistent micro-structure. The minimal variance in thickness means when you fit lead sheet to a roof, the extent of thermal movement can be accurately predicted and the correct fixing method adopted. This is particularly relevant when considering thermal movement and appropriate design and fixing methods, and gives you peace of mind that the job will be weathertight and not subject to cracking due.
After receiving your quoteation you may notice a lead code this represents the thickness and content of the lead below is a guide to each lead code and what they would be used for;

A recent survey found that 93 percent of the nation are more likely to attend a viewing if the house’s exterior is well maintained.
Nearly a third of Brits would pay more 25 percent more for a freshly painted home.
‘In recent years we have seen homebuyers and renters move from unconsciously to consciously judge the appearance of home exterior,’ said property expert Kate Faulkner, ‘So it is becoming increasingly important to refine aesthetics even before the agent takes their photos to secure viewings and the best price.’
The top 5 exterior must haves are:
1. Well-kept garden
2. Well-kept windows and frames
3. Fresh paintwork in neutral colours
4. Front porch
5. Stylish lighting
I chose GNR because they listened to what I wanted done, and gave me a detailed, fair quote which explained all the aspects of the proposed job (re-roof, bay window and attic space utilisation to a Victorian Terrace). When the work started they were thoroughly professional, courteous and kept me updated with the work (especially useful as I was not present for much of the work was being completed) and accommodated a couple of other requests that came up as the job progressed. The quality of the work was superb, especially the lead work, and all certificates and guarantees followed quickly upon completion of the job (plus work-in-progress photos of the work done as I had missed much of it) Really pleased with the result and I would not hesitate to recommend Geoff Neal Roofing – and a big Thank You to the team who carried out the work!

GNR replaced the little lead roof on our bay window. they were utterly professional and efficient from start to finish. The level of craftsmanship is really impressive and the team was a pleasure to deal with..
Jonathan Tummons / York
Fantastic team, clean and efficient service, what could have been a great intrusion on our lives turned out to be a minor inconvenience . We had a full re roof and a modification to our dormer, full scaffold for 4 weeks and extensive lead repairs. When I say re roof this was a Victorian double fronted slate roof on one of the busiest roads in York so not a small job!
As extras cropped up (which were minor in nature) and additional works which we requested to be done during the project, these were communicated efficiently, promptly addressed and costs agreed up front so we had no surprises when it came to money. As an experienced Construction surveyor, having worked in the industry for over 35 years the customer service and attention to detail was fantastic, and the quality of the lead work was some of the best I have seen. A quality job.
Trusted advisor on health & safety compliance, we are an authority. We set industry benchmarks, provide assurance and reassurance, and offer best-in- class services that are easy to use and cost effective.
