What is anyone's experience of using this system with natural rather than ceramic slates, and does anyone think it will last as long as a traditiona system, that is 100 - 150 + years plus in Ireland?

Hi Joe

Thanks for your prompt response. I read previous correspondence with interest. It seems odd that this international product appears to have only an Irish Agrement Certificate. Why not Australian or US equivalents? The Irish Cert does not appear to apply to natural slate - just ceramic ones. Also I contacted one of the big importers of natural slate here, and while they didn't condemn the system, they weren't happy to stand over their products if that method was used. They did say that the suggested saving of 50% slates was somewhat offset by the wastage produced by cutting down standard slates to 400mmx400mm (16", particularly if the slates weren't easily cut. I also see that the guarantee relates to the physical properties of the components but that you should get another one from your roofing conractor.

Regards
