Can Slate Can be used as an alternative to wood Window Cills
Brazilian Black slate Window cills can be used instead of wood for Windows both for internal and external uses. There are many advantages in using slate and you may find out its not as expensive as you think. as we cut a lot of Hearth and coping stones from Premium Brazilian slate we do have a lot of good length pieces left over that convert ideally to sills and if we have the sizes you may require we can discount them.
One major benefit of slate over wood is that you will never have to worry about them rotting and there is no need to paint them on a regular but our view is they also look far better. Available with a smooth riven surface or a honed polished top. we can also cut ones with horns or toggles on with 3 different edge finishes such as 1/2 bullnosed, bevel or clean sawn.
Thin Bricks with Slate hearth being Installed worcester
This Fireplace is being constructed using a eazyclad Brazilian slate for the hearth which we cut for this customer at our stone yard in Hereford they were very happy in the fact that they could also get the brick slips to line the chimney insert at the same time as pick up the Slab. They visited us before purchasing to work out what would look best in our show room. This was cut and delivered within 3 days which helped them in securing the services of a local wood burner installer at short notice..
The size of the fireplace stone was quite a large on and measured 1500 x 1200 before we cut it into a single T shape which is most probably one of our biggest selling products that we are asked to supply. The brick slips are lining there existing chimney breast and are made in our Newcastle Production unit they are very easy to use and are non combustable so are great for use with log burning stoves.

What is best Real stone or Manufactured cast stone cladding
We are often asked what is the difference between natural stone cladding and manufactured veneers. There is no true answer but generally real random stone cut to a 20mm or 30mm thickness will cost a lot more money in most cases this will be 2 or 3 times the cost of cast stone. This is because it is very time consuming and costly to cut random walling into a veneer. Whilst manmade reconstituted stone is generally made in moulds which can be used again and again and many companies who produce it will have developed systems that they can turn around a set around in a 24 hour period. we have a range of real and cast products that are suitable for covering walls internally or externally and are non combustable so are great for the self builder who wants to create a fireplace for a log burner.
So i suppose the questions comes down to three major points
