VERMONT UNFADING GREY/GREEN ROOF SLATE

 

SLATE RoofING TILES


 

As the name implies, these roof slates are quarried in Vermont, USA an area renowned for their beautiful grey to green slates. The colour of these slates is permanent which is why they are referred to as "unfading". Slates from other quarries in the region undergo a slight colour change with time; in other words they fade. The slates are rich in character and texture with colour not disimilar to the leaves of many Australian eucalypts.
