Finding a tile with the appearance of a slate
Galloway – A thinner leading edge flat interlocking roof tile which has the appearance of slate
St Mary’s Island, Chatham, Kent
This site was part of the unique island community project of St. Mary’s Island, Kent. Russell Roof Tiles supplied 27,000 slate grey Galloway tiles
Russell Roof Tiles worked closely with Eagle Roofing on the project. Countryside Properties were looking for a slate effect tile to cover their roofs. They ultimately chose Galloway roof tiles as they combine the traditional appearance of slate with the security of an interlocking design and the economy of concrete
