Can’t forget about SLATE

We Love Slate.

Slate is an incredible building material, known for its durability, natural beauty, and versatility. The natural colors, textures, and inherent qualities are in tune with today’s lifestyles with warmth, elegant charm, and easy maintenance. It’s a metamorphic stone with very distinctive properties and performance criteria. Countertops, tabletops, and sinks are just a few examples of how genuine slate may be used.

We offer slate countertops, table tops, and sinks in a variety of colors such as green, mottled purple, red, black, and grey to enhance any design. Depending on the slab, the grain type and pattern can vary. Some have a distinctive highly textural look while other slates exhibit very little graining whatsoever. Our countertops are a matte honed finish. As a result, one can enjoy the smooth satin texture that creates a warm aesthetic. Unlike other stones, our matte honed finish will enhance any design aesthetic, creating a space everyone can enjoy.

One of the best qualities of our slate is its extremely low absorption rate. Since it is non-porous, it is easy to sanitize and will not damage or stain from exposure to acids such as lemon juice or wine. Our natural products are not only anti-bacterial but also stain resistant, noncombustible and unmatched in strength and durability. It is easy to maintain and scratches can be simply removed with a sponge during normal cleaning. For deeper scratches, wet very fine steel wool can make them disappear.
Slate offers these necessary properties in a counter top, making it a perfect option for your kitchen design.
