Vermont Slate cladding

Real Slate

Our real slate cladding is classified as Unfading. It maintains consistent color and performance for decades. Exposure to the elements can fade, or draw out a chalky calcium from slate. “Fading” slate loses color and weakens over time. Our Unfading slate is low in calcium and maintains color and strength.

We offer slate selected from the least weathering colors available in the entire world.

Standard Colors

Sea Island Green

Sea Island Green presents a consistent range of “sea foam” green with some natural variation from light to dark.
Like most natural slate, Sea Island Green can appear to change color with the quality of light. It is unfading and weathers very little over time.

Rocky Gray Blend

Rocky Gray Blend is unique in color and texture. Its smooth to heavy texture exhibits a natural blend of tones from gray to black. Some light may bring out a slight green hue. Add contrast and character to your facade with this subtle yet distinctive blend.

Vermont Gray/Green

This subtle green slate is marked with the presence of gray. Officially named “Vermont Unfading Gray/Green,” it weathers very little and keeps color consistency for decades. It is a beautiful color for an entire facade or when used as an accent in a blend.
