Slate

Rustic Stone

Slate offers results that are simply incomparable, evoking tradition, authenticity and distinction.  Its intrinsic beauty is derived from its composition as well as the method by which it is quarried. Slate blocks are extracted from mountains by hand, allowing it to separate naturally into uneven sheets.  The stone’s predisposition to break on parallel planes gives it a rustic and unfinished look.

Quarries in India, Africa, China, and South America produce some of the most exotic and vivid colors imaginable; vibrant shades of gold, copper, rust, violet, and amber.  This stone bares a warmth and texture unmatched by any other with no two pieces ever exactly alike.

Its durability and low maintenance make it an ideal material for a wide range of interior and exterior uses, from flooring and wall cladding to pool surrounds and driveways.  Regular care and maintenance is recommended to protect the natural patina of the stone.

Our craftsmen understand the importance of coordinating the flow of your stone, keeping in mind the traffic and sight patterns of each application.  Extra care is taken in the process of laying out the stone, coordinating color variations and textures.
