Scottish Slate as old as the Earth itselfRoof Slate has been formed by a process which is almost as old as the earth itself. it began when surface rocks were worn away by wind and water and deposited on the floor of the ocean that covered this area of Wales.
The deposits, through the Ordovician period, some 500 million years ago, became buried beneath the earth and were subjected to intense pressure and heat, forming them into sedimentary rocks.
Later movements in the earth's crust exerted immense forces upon these rocks, forcing them up into colossal strata's on the mountain sides as the waters receded.
For centuries Welsh slate has been used for the roofing, cladding and flooring of buildings world-wide, from cottages to palaces.Due to slates natural qualities, and characteristics it is ideally suited for prestigious projects.
Its uses are not only limited to roofing, but can be used for steps, pool surround, kitchen tops windowsill's etc.
Its uses are only limited by one's imagination. Roofing slates are produced from a natural material, each individual hand made slate will have its own unique visual characteristics.
