House Signs made from Slate

woodsland slate sign

Slate stone is an excellent choice when purchasing a house sign. This stone is a type of metamorphic rock that has been subjected to extreme heat and immense pressure over thousands of years.

Slate has been quarried all over the world from as early as the 16th century and has been used through construction, roofing, flooring and even blackboards in school.

This type of stone can be found mostly grey, but it can vary with shades of different greys from light to dark throughout the UK where it is quarried from. The colour of Slate is determined with the number of minerals that sit within the rock.

Slate is still highly used nowadays for house signs, memorials, roofing and flooring as well as other products due to its durability and elegant look but affordable.
