Alternative to natural stone
Readily available, Cotswold roofing is a highly acceptable reconstructed stone alternative to natural stone slates. Suitable for roofs down to a minimum pitch of 30°.

Equal quantities from the full range of widths are supplied in each particular length. The length of rafter determines the number of courses in each slate length supplied.
