NFRC Roof Slating CPD for Glasgow City Council

Traditional Roof Slating CPD to Glasgow City CouncilThrough the Glasgow Traditional Building Forum, Glasgow City Council and the National Federation of Roofing Contractors joined together and organised a Continuous Professional Development course for staff at Glasgow City Council.


Danny Graham from Graham Roofing (Scotland) Ltd volunteered to present at the CPD. Danny is a time-served slater with a wealth of knowledge on traditional slating practices and gave those attending the benefit of his knowledge on:

  • Scotch Slate – Properties of – colour, size (random, thickness) and Supplies of Scotch Slate
  • Alternative Slates available
  • When to reslate and when to repair
  • When to redress and reuse slate introducing minimum new slates
  • When to totally strip and reslate
  • When reroofing gives you an opportunity to retrofit insulation to roof voids


The CPD was very well attended and there was a lengthy question and answers session afterwards.


Thank you to Glasgow City Council and NFRC for working together to promote best practice in traditional roof slating.
