Our slate has a fine riven finish, this means you will see some natural texture across the surface as well as some variation in colour. We do not stock honed slate.

We can try to select slabs that either have more texture and riven marking or are fairly clean and smooth depending on your preference, however we cannot guarantee the exact finish due to the characteristics of the natural product.

We can hand polish the surface of the slate if you would prefer a smoother finish, this process often reveals the next layer in the slate which results in additional colour variation across the face of the slate.


Day to day maintenance couldn’t be simpler with regularly cleaning with a damp cloth and soapy water. 

It is recommended that at least once a year to reapply the oil sealer that is provided with every order. This is for appearance’s sake; reapplying sealer will maintain a dark satin finish.

From time-to-time small scratches may appear in the surface these can be removed using fine wire wool and buffing the affected area, once this is done the sealer can also be reapplied to the area.

Things to avoid:

  • Although slate table tops are hardwearing and resilient you should avoid cutting directly on the surface, use of a chopping board is always recommended this can be said for all types of stone tables and counter tops.
  • Day to day use with hot pans should not affect the slate however we recommend using heat bars or chopping boards when placing very hot objects on the tops rather than directly onto the surface.
  • The use of strong acid cleaners is to be avoided.
