Eco Slates

100% recycled & backed by a 50 year warranty

Norman Piette is the only stockist of Eco Slate in Guernsey, which uses a state-of-the-art formulation that provides a strong, pliable and attractive roofing option for a wide range of building applications down to a pitch of just 10 degrees. This self-bonding roof shingle has a unique flexibility for use on ridges and hips. There is no need for custom-made accessories because every slate can be cut and set to any angle or size you need.

The installation process is very simple as the slates are fitted straight onto plyboard or oriented strand board (OSB), no roof battens are required, a standard breathable underlay and then nailed down. Nails should be 16mm hot dip galvanised annular ring shank with a minimum 5mm head. Nailed by hand ONLY, do not use a nail gun. Nail position guides and spacers are pre-marked. It’s that easy!

The process gives a stronger, more pliable membrane and creates a roof that is wind and weather resistant, and provides better insulation even at low pitches.

Eco Slate installation is incredibly cost-effective – it takes less than half the time of traditional slate, all without any damage, breakages or waste associated with real slate.

Over a period of time, the slate will bond together forming a solid membrane on your roof. This process has no specific timescale as it relies on sunlight, and therefore bonds faster during the summer months than the winter months.

Backed by a 50 year Warranty
