Slate roof tile is a fine grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from an original shale type sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash through low-grade regional metamorphism. As a natural resource, it offers many environmental benefits.
The low tendency to absorb water by slate roof tile also makes it very resistant to frost damage and breakage due to freezing. Natural slate tiles is also waterproof and fireproof resistant and energy efficient. It requires little or no maintenance.
Chemical sealants are often used on tiles to improve durability and appearance, increase stain resistance, reduce efflorescence, and increase or reduce surface smoothness. The Beauty of slate is both unique and Timeless. Feel free to contact us for information on prices and specials!
