Diminishing Random Green Slate

Diminishing Random Green Slate

Our Hull Depot has recently supplied Barcamp Natural Slates to a build in East Yorkshire where Project Manager James Green (Ashcourt Ltd) has undertaken quite a unique project .

The build is using Barcamp ‘Diminishing Random Green Slate’. This particular slate has high deposits of Chlorite which gives it a unique green hue.

Burton Roofing Merchants Sales Representative Mike Hall explains why they chose this highly regarded product; 

“Ashcourt Ltd wanted to use a slate that wasn't a harsh contrast to the surrounding environment. The beauty of the Barcamp slate is its greenish hue that simply helps blend the roof into the surrounding backdrop and is sympathetic to the existing attached roof.”

Working with diminishing slate is a very skilled task that very few roofers would undertake. James Green explains some of the difficulties they faced; 

“Using Diminishing Slate can be quite tricky, it requires a lot more thought as you are using four different slate sizes. The positioning of each slate can take some time as you need to ascertain which slate will fit best and how it works within the layout, there are no short cuts ” 

The end result though is staggering. Both the skilled craftsmanship & natural beauty of the Barcamp Slate really compliment the setting. This product has really lent itself to the scene, the chamfered edge and natural earthy characteristics are second to none.
