Roofing Slate Colors

colorsIn the slate industry, varieties of slate are distinguished by their color. Since slate is a 100% natural product there are no dye lots or exact mixes of pigments to be controlled, only the unique beauty created by Mother Nature. Colors are not discrete, separate items, but ranges on a continuum and like snowflakes, no two pieces of slate are identical. Pieces extracted from the same section of the quarry may have subtle differences in color, inclusions or markings. With tens of thousands of years of sediment required to form 1" of slate, these subtle differences in color and texture are to be expected.

We've categorized the breadth of our roofing slate offerings into 13 colors. Click on the links to see a description and photo. Subtle variations of many of these colors are available, so if you are working to match an existing slate roof please contact us so we can provide the best assistance possible.
