How can you bring your outdoor patio, driveway, walkway, or indoor floor to life? Well, there are several ways including renovating with natural stones or adding fresh elements to accentuate them. Generally, you'd consider durable outdoor pavers in Granite, Limestone, Bluestone, or Travertine. Ever thought about Slatestone flooring or walling? Slate is a fine-grained metamorphic rock formed of clay and volcanic ash. The stone has found its use as a roofing material for ages!

This article aims at highlighting the advantages of Slatestone flooring and walling and how you can make the most of this underrated natural stone.

Benefits of Slatestone pavers and tiles for your property


Slate looks smooth and is often mistaken for a slippery stone. On the contrary, Slatestone pavers are non-slippery and safe to walk on, whether installed indoors or wet outdoors. The non-porous surface doesn't allow water absorption and the riven textured surface offers good traction, preventing slipping hazards. This is an advantage, especially around swimming pools or bathrooms.

We vouch for this safety feature. What about you?

Sturdy and long-lasting

Known for their extreme durability, Slatestone pavers can last several years. They have the strength of concrete and robustness of porcelain. Their toughness makes them the best choice for outdoor pavers. Slatestone tiles and pavers are fire resistant and a good electrical insulator. The stone's negligible water absorption makes it resistant to frost damage.

A tough nut to crack, yeah?


Slatestone is a combination of minerals that mostly comes from volcanic ash. This makes the stone anti-acidic and does not react to strong chemicals or liquid spills. Also, due to its low porosity, it has a minimal absorption rate. It only requires periodic sealing which helps prevent staining from liquid or moisture. This keeps your worries about maintenance at bay. Slate flooring in patio, alfresco, kitchen, or indoor flooring precisely remains stain-proof and clean.

If this doesn't sound amazing, what else will?

Low maintenance

Slatestone pavers never lose their colour or sheen even exposed to harsh sunlight. They are hard to stain and do not react with acid-based chemicals. You would not have to worry about their upkeep with a solid nonfading property, weather resistance, durability, and stain and acid resistance.

Who doesn't want a no-fuss, low-maintenance space?

Naturally beautiful

Natural beauty and unique textures on stones come by the virtue of their origin. Since it is a volcanic rock, it has natural colours and patterns that make it stand out from the crowd. The metamorphic rock with its natural, elegant look is hence a visual treat. Adding eye-catching Slate flooring and wall tiles can add value to your property.

What are you waiting for?

Eco friendly

Slatestone is an eco-friendly material which means it can be reused and recycled at the end of its life. Its efficient and simple production process has a low environmental impact. Slate is extracted and worked upon which doesn't require artificial products or chemical processing. Building a roof or creating pavers with Slate instead of concrete can avoid tons of carbon emissions. The stone's durability spans over 100 years, making it one of the most resilient materials for paving or roofing.

Ever known anything as sustainable as this?

In conclusion

Slatestone is not just a durable and elegant-looking stone but serves numerous advantages like impermeability, resilience, and fade resistance. Not to forget its sustainability with zero carbon emissions. It is an ultimate paving stone that will add value and aesthetic appeal to your property.
