Background information

Slate is one of the oldest materials used for cladding facades and making them weatherproof. Today, natural stone is mined mechanically, but otherwise in exactly the same way as it used to be. As a true natural material, slate is today usually slightly more expensive than industrially produced building materials.

Slate tiles in different sizes and shapes can be used to cover the roof and façade, which can be laid in different ways, but 20 x 20 cm is very common. But also slate floor and wall tiles are possible, especially large slate tiles are used for laying floors.

Slate is particularly economical due to its durability

Slate does not last for decades, but practically for centuries - numerous old buildings prove this time and time again. Often renewal of a slate paneling on the façade only has to be done because the nails are rusted - the slates are still intact. From this point of view, the higher price of slate is also very economical.
