Spanish slate makes up 90% of Europe's roofing slate. As you'll probably guess, it hasn’t become so widely used without being of exceptional quality. Because so much slate is quarried in Spain, it means you have a lot to choose from.

Using Spanish slate for your roofing project is a perfect match. Slate as a material absorbs very little rain water, so is ideal for keeping homes dry. As well as holding up well in the rain, it's also resistant to other adverse weather. Being unable to absorb a lot of water makes slate unlikely to break through freezing, so even harsh winters will leave it untroubled. Slate is also useful in more dangerous circumstances. If your house or your customer's were ever to catch fire, slate is non-combustible. This means it won't burn, and will remain intact protecting your roof and home.
Taking care of Spanish slate is a breeze. If you install it on your own roof, you'll save time and money in having to clean and maintain it. It's not susceptible to fungus or mould, so will stay looking good as new for a long time. If you fit a customer with a Spanish slate roof, they'll be grateful for the low maintenance option you provided. With all the time they save, they'll be more likely to recommend your services.
Properties fitted with slate roofs can be expected to increase in value. Spanish slate, as a natural material, has a distinctive look and will improve the appearance of any home you add it to. This enhancement in appearance will also serve to increase the value of a home. As slate is a highly-sought after roofing material, a house that already has it will surely attract more buyers.
Finally, Spanish slate can be expected to last many years. Most will last between 70-100 years. So opting for Spanish slate roof tiles, means you'll probably keep the same roof over your head for life.
