They are also used as a base for putting railings on as they are quite easy to drill through and fix securely, sometimes it is to match in with the surrounding area or buildings that have slate or a similar types of finish and you need it to be pleasing to the eye but the main reason is personal choice as there are many other products available that will do the same job.
