Slate: A Versatile Rock
Have you considered using slate for your next renovation project? The material comes in a variety of shades of gray, which is a very popular color right now. The stone also occurs in shades of green, red, black, purple, and brown. The stone is not only versatile and durable, but also elegant and timeless. Slate is used in the construction industry to make roofing shingles. It is also a popular material for external and internal flooring. You will find floors in outdoor porches, basements, bathrooms and kitchens made from the material. Landscapers like to use it because of its weather-resistant and pollution-resistant properties.
