Slate Hearths and Fire Surrounds

Ardosia Slate Company stocks a huge selection of Brazilian slate fire hearth slabs for fireplaces in a variety of sizes, thicknesses and colours.

Our workshop in the south west of England is fully equipped to cut, shape and finish any bespoke or custom made slate hearth to your specific requirements, e.g. Circles (part circles), squares, rectangles, triangles. The standard finish of the fire hearths in slate is a fine riven surface; although more textured surfaces can be achieved by selection and polished surfaces are also possible. Our slate hearths for woodburners or solid fuel burners can be designed to match any type of fireplace so that you get a fireplace hearth and surround that work together both in terms of looks and in practice.

Slate Hearths Custom Made in the UK

Fire hearth slab edges are diamond cut to achieve square and can be worked to provide a specific profile, or chipped to give an aged effect. Please see our bespoke page for details of edging. See our Fire Hearths Gallery for images of further examples.

Whatever design of fire hearth you require, please contact us and one of our team will be pleased to discuss your requirements, provide a cost estimate and take your order, we are then able to work from drawings or ‘templates’of your slate hearths. 

Once completed, the hearth will be cleaned and sealed to your requirements prior to shipping to any mainland UK address by a specified ‘pallet carrier’ service with cost starting at £45.00 plus VAT, whilst offshore and European addresses can be serviced by special arrangement; please contact us for details for shipping fireplace hearths in the UK and Europe.
