Slate has many uses besides roofing material.
The ‘slaty cleavage’ characteristic of slate allows large slabs to be quarried with a relatively flat surface, especially in Vermont Green. This is left as ‘Natural Cleft’ or ground and honed to a smooth surface. As such it provides exquisite counter-tops, table-tops and vanities.
Billiard tables are a well-known use for the product. For centuries slate has found use as treads and risers for stairways, window sills, thresholds and of course flooring tile.
All these products are available through the Gummer Slate Co.
