Slatestone’s striking appearance with a strong and hard-wearing nature makes it a natural choice for indoor and outdoor use. This metamorphic rock contains micas and clay minerals that resist chipping, fire, and moisture. Together these factors contribute to Slatestone’s dependability as a tough outdoor paving material.
Slatestone’s durable surface stands the test of time even in the harshest of weather conditions! Its fire resistance and waterproof feature mean it can be used in areas prone to fire breakouts, places that receive ample sunshine, or rainfall. They are excellent for several outdoor applications, especially roofing. For indoors, slate is used in flooring or wall cladding applications. Slate paving is impervious to cracking, breaking, or chipping, which speak volumes about their toughness. Natural slate tiles can even be used as decorative accents or backsplashes, given their availability in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Slatestone pavers have naturally riven texture and black & grey hues which give surfaces a modern finish while infusing life even into the most docile looking ones. You also get to choose floor tiles from black, multi-colored gold, and corroded tones that lend a unique sense of style to the flooring.
