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.
The most common use of slate waste, that has been around for a long time is to use the waste for sub-base material. When people are putting in a shed, or a patio, or anything that needs a good, solid base for stability of the project, they can pick up slate waste to put in under the base material (sand, pea gravel, etc).
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 paved areas do not just serve as walk ways but also act as borders as well as functional areas. Today everyone wants to get things made instantly and so one may also opt for pre- made garden slabs. These are priced as per the variety and the ease of installation.
