Real slate is a rock crafted only by nature, with its finest expression found in Spain, where we operate 20 quarries. No synthetic material can replicate the unique combination of temperature and pressure that nature applied, taking over 400 million years to create.

In the US, the roofing market is dominated by alternatives such as asphalt shingles and metal roofing. These materials are popular for their affordability, ease of installation, and lighter weight. However, none of these artificial options can match the unique characteristics of natural slate.

Unlike many other roofing products in the American market, which rely on man-made compounds, Readyslate is sourced directly from the earth. This ensures a sustainable and eco-friendly option for homeowners looking to blend functionality with the organic charm of natural slate.

Each slate is meticulously split by hand, a testament to the expertise and dedication of our artisans. It is this artisanal touch that imbues every piece with a unique character, making each roof a masterpiece of natural artistry.

Readyslate has been developed and patented by a company which has been synonymous with the finest real slate solutions since 1892. It redefines the possibilities of real slate roofing, marrying time-honored craftsmanship with modern technology.

The product has been created to target homes built to standard residential framing codes, usually not meeting the weight requirements of roofing products such as concrete or clay tile. Because of it’s lightweight, Readyslate eliminates many roadblocks associated with heavier roofing products.
