Reclaimed Bangor Blue Slates
Bangor Blue slates are no longer made. Instead most people who want to achieve a traditional looking roof in Ireland use reclaimed Bangor Blue slates. We are the biggest supplier of reclaimed slates in the island of Ireland. Reclaimed roof slates are slates that have been used before, usually salvaged from another roof. Although technically they can be classed as second hand, they are usually of very high quality. In fact, reclaimed slates often have an incredibly long lifespan, lasting hundreds of years.

There are some major benefits to using reclaimed slates. They generally look better, especially on buildings that are very old. We believe that they add to the beauty of a property, often retaining its traditional look. Reclaimed slates can be used to provide character, giving it a unique style.

Reclaimed & New Chimney pots
Designed to improve fireplace draw and limit draughts, reclaimed terracotta chimney pots sit on top of a brick or stone stack and come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colours. Believed to derive from the Latin word Caminus (meaning furnace / forge / stove), chimneys became common in houses in the 16th– 17th Centuries and were originally first built of wood (oddly!) and mud or plaster. Later they became a simple brick construction with an internal flue.

A large selection of reclaimed chimney pots are now available throughout our yards. They come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Perfect to compliment your roofing slates, a reclaimed chimney pot is the ideal way to set your individual stamp on your building, particularly on a domestic project. It is now popular to use chimney pots as decorative garden items as well, and we believe that our diverse range of chimney pots is sure to inspire most.

Reclaimed & New Ridge & Roof tiles
It is well known that reclaimed clay and concrete ridge tiles can have an incredibly long life. So long, in fact, that the tiles will outlast the other components of the average pitched roof. Typical clay ridge tiles could last well in excess of 100 years. However, the average tiled pitched roof lasts around 40, 50 to 100 years, due to eventual deterioration of other components in the roof system such as the underlay, timber battens and fixings, as well as the ravages of the UK weather.

This means that during a demolition or a re-roof, the ridge tiles can be salvaged and re-used, either on the same property or, more commonly on another project. It is more common for clay tiles, particularly traditional clay pantiles, to be re-used for full roofs, rather than concrete tiles. Concrete tiles tend to be stocked by reclaim yards for use as spot replacements to colour match existing roof tiles which have faded over time.

Reclaimed ridge tiles can be ideal for old buildings, particularly heritage projects in sensitive planning locations, where the roof must blend in perfectly with the surrounding buildings. Clay ridge tiles that are in good condition after 50 years have perfectly demonstrated their durability and will almost certainly survive for the next 50 years and beyond.

Reclaimed Flooring Tiles
We stock floor tiles of many different varieties. Our most popular floor tile is a traditional island of Ireland Quarry tile, as seen above and taken from our 7 yards. Quarry tiles have been hand-made since Georgian times. However, the majority of the tiles that are salvaged nowadays are Victorian or later.

They make a great outdoor feature on patio areas but they can be useful for in door projects also. What makes reclaimed Quarry tiles so desirable is there natural differences in size, colour and pattern. This is created through the formation processes that each tile goes through.

Reclaimed Wooden Flooring
If you compare old wooden flooring built at the turn of the century such as those in Victorian and Edwardian homes with modern timber flooring you’ll notice that the planks in the latter are far narrower. That’s because the trees haven’t been allowed to grow and reach their full size – as a result, the planks in newer flooring aren’t as wide as those in reclaimed flooring.

The reason reclaimed wooden flooring is stronger and will last longer than flooring produced from newer timber, is because the older wood is less likely to split. The reason for this is that it’s been exposed to hot and cold atmosphere’s for so long that it’s already done all the expanding and contracting it’s ever going to do. In other words it’s already dried out and won’t do so any further. It’s stood the test of time, if you like.

Offered this company roof tiles to purchase. Sent pics as requested via Whatsap. Got a message next morning at 08.30 suggesting tiles wouldnt be picked up as vehicle was going back to yard. No message or call despite being told someone would call me. Phoned mobile number to query what was going on only to be told by person who answered that he had spoke to his boss and was told that "dont worry about them tiles, thats probably some boy who is on the dole and cant be bothered to get out of his bed"
Unbelieveable! No phone call, no price agreed, no contact whatsoever.
Customer service is zero despite self praising website. Take my advice, go to Danny O Kane, Castlerock. At least they have manners and respect for their customers. And for the record, I have never been on the dole!
