Riverstone Roofing Slate
Riverstone is mined from the San Luis quarry in the La Florida region of central Argentina, and is one of the highest quality roofing slates and is suitable for a wide range of applications. Beautiful, cost-effective and guaranteed to perform to the most demanding international standards, Riverstone is in demand throughout Europe and the US and its popularity is growing rapidly within the UK.
The slate dates back 560 million years to the Cambrian era and has been quarried by the people of La
Florida for hundreds of years.
Riverstone is a distinctive grey/green colour. The colouring is completely natural and will not fade even when exposed to the harshest of environments. Riverstone is available with a dressed edge finish.
The slate comes in a choice of two thicknesses (Ultra and Ultra Heavy) and in a variety of sizes to suit most traditional and historical listed buildings.
