Slate is one of the most durable materials that you can use in a project, there are hundreds of buildings that have been around for literally thousands of years that have been constructed from slate. These structures tend to be in areas where there is little to no freezing cycle however. It is recommended that if you’re using it anywhere where there is snow or frost, even occasionally, you had better make sure you use a waterproofing agent on your slate paving slabs as often as recommended, or you risk the frost breaking the stone apart over the next few season.
Slate is a material that needs to be cut and chipped into size either by hand, or by machinery, and sometimes there is a significant amount of waste involved in the process. One of the biggest perpetrators seems to be large paving slabs – due to their large size, and particular shapes, there are a lot of large cuts involved in their manufacturing. There are many ways that the slate waste is used, but I’m only going to list three, as I don’t want this post to get too long.
These paving slabs can be made as per ones liking and choice. The flowerbeds can be made while retaining space for the walk ways and sidewalks. These paving-slabs are of importance since they act not just as borders but also functional areas.
One may ask, what is a patio slab? A slab is a block consisting of a thick piece of a material. This block shape makes it easier to be installed. One can install block by block the patio, as a gradual process, which makes the installation cheaper. Traditionally patio slabs used to be considered the ones which were made out of concrete to form a less expensive and yet functional patio space. This type of patio was cheaper because concrete is less expansive than other materials like the ostentatious stones used for paving a patio.
