Westmorland Green Slate

The Burlington 'Westmorland Green' is quite possibly the most famous and best quality green slate found anywhere in the world.

It is a thick, textured beautiful green slate which covers many of the UK’s and Ireland’s most prestigious and landmark buildings. 

Available in random lengths and widths, the slates can be laid in diminishing courses with the larger slates used at the eaves and the smaller slates as you work up towards the ridge.  This tradition of laying slates in diminishing courses is very traditional and gives a pleasing perspective to the roof.

Slates can also be supplied in a sized format (fixed lengths with random widths) which helps to retain a traditional random element to the roof design, whilst speeding up the laying process and keeping installation costs down.

For a regular half-bond pattern to the roof, slates are available with a fixed length and fixed width.

Burlington green slates fully adhere to BS EN 12326 (W1, S1, T1), and have a life expectancy of 150+ years.
