Unfading Green Slate

Unfading Green Slate, quarried in Vermont from our green slate quarry that has been in operation for over 150 years, is an excellent choice for interior and exterior applications. Because of its superior properties and performance, depth of color and rich texture, architects repeatedly specify this natural Vermont slate for interior slate flooring, exterior paving stone, stair treads, fireplace surrounds, slate wall cladding including slate wall shingles and slate sculpings, countertops and roofing. Unfading Green Slate is available in natural cleft, honed, cascade and textured finishes.
