Canadian Slate Roof Tiles
Glendyne Natural Canadian slate tiles have a fast growing reputation for quality Due to there blue/grey colour and excellent physical characteristics.
Glendyne slate is produced in the town of Saint Marc du Lac Long, Quebec, Canada.
The slate has a fast growing reputation for quality due to the exceptional slate deposit and the combination of modern extraction technology with traditional finishing skills. Produced from deposits laid down in the Ordovician era some 500 million years ago this quarry was first opened by British slate quarrymen in the early part of the 20th century. Roofs with Glendyne slate can still be seen today around the area of the quarries, some 90 years later.
Re-opened by a local family, Glendyne is manufactured to the highest standards in two thicknesses, Glendyne Fours which are 4 to 5mm thick and Glendyne Fives which are 5 to 6 mm thick.
Glendyne slate tiles will withstand the most severe weather conditions: they are unaffected by sunlight, ultraviolet light and even acid rain. Laid correctly, Glendyne slate tiles will last the lifetime of the building and are ideal for use on any major project including supermarkets, schools, city offices,prestige homes, re-roofs and new builds.
Since 2007 Glendyne slate has been approved by the Snowdonia National Park Authority as acceptable for use within the boundaries of the national park as it is equivalent in colour, texture and weathering characteristics to slates from the Blaenau Ffestiniog area.
Throughout the process, the requirements of the quality control system are meticulously applied to ensure the production of quality slates and thus meet the high expectations of customers worldwide. Each crate can be identified to allow traceability to the source.
