High-Quality Vermont Green Slate
Vermont Structural Unfading Green is markedly different to other green slates from the North East of America in several important ways. First, it is all produced from a block extracted from a single family-owned & run quarry, and the raw block is then cut in the production sheds to ensure that the slates are made “on the grain”. This dramatically improves the finished roofing slate’s strength, longevity and workability.
