With over 100,000 individual pieces of Canadian Heather roofing slate, the roof on Equiset’s Goods Shed, in Melbourne’s Batman Hill precinct, is now the largest refurbished heritage roof of its kind in Australia.
Roofing Slate Worx, the Australian and New Zealand agents and stockists for the Newfoundland producers of Canadian Heather roofing slate, were commissioned to complete the project with a roof that replicated the original roof colour and original imperial sizes, which Canadian Heather was able to do easily.
The benefits of Canadian Heather Slate derive from a number of highly practical properties. It is exceptionally durable, unaffected by extremes of temperature and resistant to acids, alkalis and all airborne and waterborne pollutants, with a 150-year life expectancy.
Canadian Heather is a maintenance-free natural stone material unaffected by climate or environment. At a time of global warming, Canadian Heather is a premium green building material suitable for use on heritage or new home or building projects.
