What is a natural slate tile?
The difference between slates and tiles is the material — slate is natural, while tiles are artificial. However, natural slate can be referred to as a natural slate tile. The slate in our collection is completely natural. Natural slate is a tectonic rock, formed over millions of years from a shale-type sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash. It has been used as a construction material for thousands of years. Its colour depends on the mineral structure and size of the mineral grains within its composition.
Benefits of natural slate tiles
Can add value to the home
Is a natural slate roof expensive?
Slate does tend to be more expensive than tiles, but after the initial cost, you will have fewer expenses in replacing or maintaining it as it is such a durable and long-lasting product.
What colour is natural slate tile?
Natural slate is most often a grey colour, though the exact hue does vary depending on where the slate was found and the minerals it contains. The grey colour can vary to be more black, dark green, or grey— and in rare cases can include blues, reds, purples, and even gold. The natural slate we source here at Roofstores has a unique green tint to it that can’t be matched elsewhere.
