The prices for roofing slate depend on the cover

Roof slate has the reputation of being a particularly expensive covering material. This applies to the so-called wild cover, however, the old German coverage is already much cheaper. The cheapest are the rectangle and the arch coverage.

Shingle form and old German cover

More than any other roof covering, the price per square meter for roofing slates depends on the way in which the individual shingles are formed and the overlapping areas created by the corresponding arrangement.

With the old German covering the shingles from the lower roof part at the eaves upwards to the roof ridge will become smaller and smaller. In addition to the visually attractive effect, only slight overlaps of the shingles, which had previously been beaten evenly, occur here.

Bow, rectangle and wild cover

Even with the arched and rectangular cover, the shingles of the roof slate are already finished and laid in a uniform pattern over the entire roof area. These cover types are the least expensive, because the roof slate from relatively thin shingles with low overlaps is mounted.

In the so-called wild cover, the highest-quality roof slate is used, which is hand-hewn individually and piece by piece during the covering process. In addition to the high material price, enormous labor costs are added, as the individual hiding of the roof slate shingles is very time-consuming.
