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.
One of the best choices will be concrete paving slabs as they are extremely affordable and very popular. Another good choice is brick paving which has the advantage of not fading for a long time. But both these materials can crack easily and are prone to stains. Anyway, there are numerous companies who manufacture and get them such materials installed and so make sure that you opt for a reputed company to get this done. Always choose a company that has been in the field for quite a long time and have excellent testimonials to be on the safe side.
The only problem with slate waste being used in these ways is that there just isn’t enough of it to go around in a lot of cases. This is great for the industry, as it means they actually have demand for their waste products, but it could also mean a price hike for it in the future. For now however, if you can get your hands on it, it makes a good cheap alternative to many other materials, a lot of which aren’t a waste product.
Paving slabs come in an unbelievable variety of sizes, designs and textures today that you will have a tough time choosing what you want if you finally decide to get them installed. Most of them are known for their long lasting quality and do not require any special kind of maintenance. So actually they are really worth the price that you finally pay for them. Majority of these stones come with a life time guarantee which is another great benefit.
