Why Choose Brazilian Roofing Slate?
Below are reasons that make the slate a good choice:
- Aesthetics – The slates have an attractive look. While it is smoother than most, it does have a slight texture. The slates have heavily dressed edges and no visible pirate, these characteristics make for an aesthetically pleasing roof.
- Value – Brazilian roof slate can be a very cost effective way of having a slate roof, especially in the Grey Green colour. The slate undercuts most other slates on the market. It is inherently more brittle than a lot of other slates. However, when installed with care, this issue can be mitigated. We recommend that you should never walk on a slated roof but if this is something that cannot be avoided then we would highly recommend choosing an alternative option.
- Colour – Unlike other slates that have a single colour, this graphite green slate is available in two distinct colours; graphite grey and grey-green. Depending on your inclination, they both make a roof stand out.
Grey & Green Natural Brazilian Roofing Slate
The jury’s out on this one as to the true classification of Brazilian slate. However, there is a demand for this natural roofing slate. It is available in two distinct colours, graphite grey and greyed green slate.
We recommend that only the thicker 7/9mm thickness is considered due to its inherent brittleness. When laid with care, a very uniform appearance can be achieved.
This natural graphite slate product is very competitively priced, especially in the greyed-green colour.
Graphite Grey Slate
The graphite grey slate is a certified roofing slate, it is also available in green colour. There is a high demand for this natural slate due to its graphite grey and green colours. It will give an excellent finish if laid properly.
High-grade natural slate is strong and long-lasting. When installed correctly, it will outlast the building. This is because it doesn’t have weak minerals like graphite or carbon.
Graphite slate gives any roof a great look and is popular in Brazil and South America because of its grey colour.
We stock two main sizes in both colours of our Brazilian roof slate of graphite grey and green slate which are 600x300mm and 500x250mm.
These are both in the 7-9mm thickness. We can supply other sizes and the 5-7mm thickness. However, we do recommend the 7-9mm slate as it has more durability.
