A California Slate Company exclusive. Truly non-fading and non-weathering, Del Castillo Gray is difficult to find – we are the only U.S. company to carry it. It is a medium gray slate, lightly textured with just a vague hue of silver or blue. Unparalleled durability puts this remarkable slate in a class of its own. It will maintain its original look for generations.
Coming from Spain’s oldest operating quarry, which dates back to the 16th century, Del Castillo Gray adorns many of the stately buildings throughout Europe. It is especially prevalent in Madrid, as the quarry is located nearby.
The test results for Del Castillo are unequalled even by the Vermont slates. This means it can be used in extreme or high alpine conditions. It is consistently easy to work (no power tools needed) and has a 100-year guarantee.
It comes in three thicknesses: lightweight: 3⁄16″ (5mm); standard: 1⁄4″ (7mm), and heavy: 1⁄2″ (12mm).
