Slate Roof Extension in Canterbury

This first floor extension over the garage, built by Ballman Roofing Contractors and designed by Anthony Swaine Architecture, demonstrates the importance of detailing, in particular the slate roof and ironwork create a subtle decoration to a simple and subservient extension.

Slate roofs tend to be simple in form, due to the use of larger slates, meaning the surfaces are plain – the beauty is created in its arrangement and detail of the junctions with other roof surfaces or parts of the building.

Slates of different shape, size and colour (which can range from blue-grey to purple and green) can be used to provide additional detail and variation. The use of lead in this instance, clay ridge tiles and later ornamented terracotta tiles also creates interest and character.
