There are many things that can be said about slate, its durable, versatile and above all else looks fantastic!
With an array of different shades and colours, along with its fine grain, slate has been used for centuries as a roofing tile. Today it is used on lawns, floors and walls.
Slate is popping up everywhere with more and more homeowners discovering different uses for the attractive stone.
Slate became a roofing material when it was discovered that it broke cleanly in to thin sheets, and was also very easy to stack. Slate is heavy but it is fire resistant, waterproof and durable enough to withstand Mother Nature herself.
Soon slate was used inside houses; especially in much used areas like hallways etc.
Black, grey and multi-coloured are the most common but slate today is available in a wide variety of colours and hues.
