Slate

Slate is a natural quarried stone that was first used as a roofing tile. Lately, it has become more widely used as a paving material, thanks to its beauty, durability and longevity. Slate is a common exterior paving material, especially in areas with nearby slate quarries. Slate offers a large range of rich color choices that are not usually seen in other stone types: from the deepest charcoal to jade greens, with undertones that contribute to the stone's uniqueness. For example, Welsh slate, which has been used in building since Roman times, has a distinctive plum-purple shade.

When it comes to deciding which surface is the most worthy investment for your home, slate can convince you to include it in your patio or walkway paving for the following reasons:
  • it's extremely durable and strong, which makes it ideal for high-traffic areas
  • it's richly colored and has unique shades
  • it has excellent frost resistance, so it's suitable for cold climates
  • it has a natural cleft surface which provides a nonslip finish
  • it can be more affordable that other paving choices
