  • The ease with which the slate is worked allows the tiles to be adapted to very varied sizes and commercial formats, which allows an unlimited number of final arrangements to be adapted to the last customer's needs.
  • The physical-mechanical qualities of the board and its special formats allow it to adapt to all types of surfaces, whether flat or curved and regardless of the degree of inclination; this ease of changing to all characters and its incomparable physical qualities make this material the best option as a covering material.
  • Although the primary use of slate is as a roofing material, it is also used, to a lesser extent, as a material for flooring, cladding, and masonry.

Main Characteristics Of Marbles:
  • Durability is one of the most outstanding elements of marble since it manages to retain its brightness and original beauty for extended periods; for this, it only needs very affordable maintenance and almost extreme simplicity.
  • Marble has excellent thermal properties due to the natural features that make it easy to have a unique thermal conductivity index and a remarkable temperature retention capacity. This allows the marble to be a raw material more than recommended for creating facades since it absorbs the sun's rays and keeps the interior temperature constant.
  • It has a wide range of hues allows it to be used in various situations and places. Depending on the marble's percentage of 'impure' elements, a particular color or another can be found. Marble is obtained directly from the earth itself and only needs a minor treatment for polishing and cleaning to enhance all its characteristics.
  • All this allows it to be established as one of the most used materials for the realization of designs in the home, either for the construction of countertops, for the use of marble on the facade, or for the completion of stairs with this material.
