We get our slate from local sources including slate roofers and quarries. We try as much as possible to use reclaimed slate, but sometimes the supply just isn't enough to create all our orders.
The short answer is... no. The roofing slates we use last through rain, snow, hail, wind, and all of mother nature's fury for up to 100 years. It is a tough material that will stand up to anything you put it through.
There will be a significant amount of variation in the veining, we can't promise any two will look the same. Each piece of marble has it's own unique veining pattern, colors, and contrast.
There are all sorts of Roman marble statues missing arms or legs, is my cheese board going to fall apart too?!? No, the difference between our marble and the Roman's is 2000 years, give or take a century. Time does a number on marble and we take great care to pick only the highest quality stone.
