All Slate Is Not Created Equal
Natural slate has a certain magic to it. Literally millions of years in the making, the rock is skilfully carved from the earth and each slate is hand-split, giving your roof a unique character and beauty that can’t be imitated. But it’s important to know that not all slate is created equal. When choosing slate for your home, be sure to select one that is unfading over time, tested to the highest standards in the industry, and from a single quarry source to ensure every slate has a consistent quality and appearance.
Whatever color and look you want, SSQ has a high quality, unfading slate for your project. All of our slates achieve a grade S1 rating on the ASTM C406 standard – the highest possible classification. In fact, we’re so confident in the quality of our slates that they come with a 100-year guarantee.
