Used in the UK for centuries, from roads to roofing, writing materials to fancy dinner plates in modern restaurants- slate paving proves itself to be infinitely useful.
But is it a good choice for your new patio?
Will it be safe and slip-proof for years to come?
Benefits of slate paving
Slate paving is favoured due to its non-porous qualities, meaning it does allow water to permeate through. This is excellent for areas, like roofs, that need to be waterproof.
This non-porosity is also useful for patios and pathways as it inhibits the growth of moss and algae. Slate paving is also slip-proof, making it a much safer option for areas outside the house.
Slate paving is also incredibly low maintenance, making it perfect for busy families who do not want to spend hours on maintenance. A brush every once and a while to remove debris is all slate needs to look great for over 100 years.
Slate is better for the environment
Slate is mined from much closer to the surface of the earth and is a completely natural product. This means that only a simple, efficient process is needed to recover it, resulting in less CO2 being spent during recovery.
Similarly, it does not need any additional treatments and is very simply processed, which can result in extra sources of CO2, for example, factories and processing plants, also being removed.
Slate can also be recycled or reused at the end of its lifecycle, reducing its environmental impact further.
