Vermont Slate is one of the most highly regarded products world-wide. Within the slate world, this is at the top of the ladder. It has been used in the USA and the UK for centuries on many projects- from prestigious buildings to simple cottages – and is utilised by all sorts of people, from designers to builders. Details of projects in the UK date back all the way to the 1890s where the slate is still on the roof today, doing what it was made to do: protect the building.
Not only can Vermont slate protect your building and do so for years and years, it can be a mesmerising style statement. So, what exactly makes this slate so special? And can it enhance your building’s exterior? UK Slate investigates!
A Clean and Stylish Approach
When it comes to home design, your roof can be the difference between a clean and modern aesthetic and a finish which lacks attention to detail. The versatility of Vermont slate means it can fit within any design approach. For a more contemporary approach to your project, consider the Eureka Vein roof tiles accompanied with a modern polymer render, and more glass entrances around your property. This is sure to ooze a modern, clean, and elegant air. An open brick aesthetic can also work well for a unique approach to an up-to-date design.
Vermont Green slate has been used many times within specific English Heritage projects including several National Parks and Crown Estates, and it’s not hard to see why! The simple yet elegant aesthetic presents a classic look which produces the perfect combination of a chic, ‘chateau’ feel whilst maintaining a remarkable fuss-free exterior.
If you are looking for a design which reflects a true classic and timeless style, then Vermont Slate can help. Its back-story and origin also gives you the perfect slice of history, right there on your roof!
Think to the Future
Many interior designers, builders and even homeowners are designing and constructing houses now with the future in mind, and this comes to design too. With trends coming and going, keeping a slate style which will never go out of style and will last for a considerable amount of time is vital.
By utilising Vermont slate into your design, you can not only create a long-lasting and withstanding structure, but you can also ensure a lavish and sustainably styled visual.
How Our Vermont Slate is Unique
Here at UK Slate our Vermont range is totally unique, and when compared to other tile and slate specialists, our methods of extraction are completely distinctive. The majority of our competitors tend to source their stock of Vermont Slate from more corporate companies. This loses the traceability factor, as repeatedly their slate will be obtained from several varying quarries and mixed in the production process.
We differentiate from our competitors here as when we procure our Vermont Slate, the slate extracted is from a single family-owned (and run) quarry. The raw block is cut in the production sheds on site to ensure that the slates are made ‘on the grain’ which not only improves the strength of the slate, but also the longevity and workability of the finished product. This is when we supply it to our fantastic customers.
We are the only exclusive Vermont Structural Slate merchants in the UK and the only suppliers of the unique Mottled Vermont Slate too! Get in touch with our team today to find out more about our Vermont Slate – our friendly team are more than happy to assist.
