A very hard, very uniform slate, Brazilian Charcoal Slate has a dark gray background with shades of pure black in individual slates. It creates a very pleasing effect when installed.
Brazil is a relative newcomer to the slate industry, yet one of the most technologically advanced, resulting in extremely high quality control and a slate that is one of the most consistent in the business.
The slate is very hard and, unlike most of the more traditional slates, requires power tools for installation. When installed, it makes a beautiful and durable roof.
Both standard and thicker, heavier tiles of this slate are available. The thicker tiles are at the higher end of the weight range.
