Slate has been used as a building stone for centuries. Its laminar nature makes it easy to cleave and work, rendering it a popular choice for roofing and walling, as well as paving.
Combining slate with other materials emphasises the qualities and attractiveness of both. Slate can be used effectively to form a break band in larger areas of natural stone. The dark, neutral tones of the slate accentuate the warmer colours of the feldspars and quartzes in the granite.
Slate is available in a range of colours, finishes and sizes and can look equally effective when used as paving, banding or even as part of a water feature with a unique effect.
