Product Description

Our slate is a premium range product available in either a beautiful black/blue shade or a charming grey shade. Both of these option contain very subtle riven markings which appear throughout. These riven markings on the slate only add to the charm.

This listing contains various options, here is a brief guideline to help with your selection:

Slate Type

Slate is a strong, metamorphic rock that consists of layers that have merged together under intense pressure over 1000's of years. As a result the surface of this slate can be riven on the surface where some of the layers have broken away inconsistently, but this only adds to it's charm. Slate is one of the best quality paving stones you can buy, so it is well worth in investment.

Our express service is only available in Brazilian Slate.

Brazilian Slate - This is our best selling slate, imported from Brazil due to its exceptional quality. The material is extremely dense and has a very natural looking riven marking.

Express Hearth Service

We stock a variety of sizes & styles ready for a quick dispatch. These are for those looking for a quick solution, or with a very flexible requirements such as a wood burner that is going to be placed in an open room rather than a fireplace. 

The pieces comes as they are off the shelf without any bespoke amendments being made before being sent out. So if you are working to specifications, you will have to take a look at our bespoke service.

The sizes available and their respective prices can be found in the dropdown at the top of the page.

Edge Types

Our express services have no alterations done to them - they are dispatched exactly as they are when they are picked off the shelf. The edges are clean cut sawn edges so are perfectly straight.

Whilst this means you can receive the piece very quickly, the edges will be unfinished and often imperfect as they wont be worked in to a style. 

The edges of your hearth can be massively improved by adding a bullnose or chamfer - our masons will then finish the edge and clear up any imperfections that may be there initially. They'll work the stone to give you a smooth and stylish finish.
