New SIKA Liquid and slate domestic roof in County Durham


Spanish Slate Grade A and SIKA liquid

Project Duration

6 weeks

DVC Commercial Roofing recently completed the roof install on an executive new build development property. The solution included natural slate and clay ridge dry fixed for the main roof and SIKA Liquid for the flat roofing. The 240m2 project took six weeks for our experienced, new build roofing team to finish from brief to completion.

The client’ chose the Estillo Blue Black slate provided by Slate UK. A natural Spanish grade A slate, the Elstillo has a timeless appearance and is of high quality.


Slate’s low water absorption will make the roof resistant to frost damage. With the natural ability to be fire and mould resistant, slate roofing is an extremely durable and reliable solution. Good quality slate is unlikely to deteriorate over time.

The installation is as necessary as the product quality. As slate can fail due to poor workmanship, it is crucial that the DVC team are experienced in slate roofing to ensure a consistently high-quality of installation.

The new build also required flat roofs to the rear of the development; we supplied and installed SIKA Liquid Plastics. DVC Roofing are Quality Assured contractors for SIKA Liquid Plastics.

The SIKA Solution provides the ideal waterproofing, protecting the building from the unpredicted UK weather. SIKA will eliminate the risk of leaks from the roof, providing a robust all-round solution. Importantly the waterproofing comes with a 20-year guarantee and gives our client peace of mind against future water ingress.
