Exterior Wall Stone


Slate is an excellent material for exterior stone, because of its low porosity it is impervious to freeze-thaw cycles, salt air and other environmental factors.  It will offer low maintenance and long-lasting elegance to your home.  Several forms of exterior wall slate are available.

  1. Panels – used for both interior and exterior, typically in larger sizes and mechanically fastened.
  2. Shingles – very similar to roofing shingles.
  3. Stacked – laid up masonry like bricks.  Four stacked slate options:
    1. Natural Cleft – textural, cleft appearance
    2. Sculpings – highly textural with unique grain edge appearance
    3. Natural Edge – textural with natural edges
    4. Sawn Edge – mildly textural sawn face with visible saw marks
