When it came time to replace Ottawa’s Le Cordon Bleu roof, it was a no brainer that the best cooking school in the world should have the best roofing product available on the market…..natural slate! In May 2018, we supplied 34 squares of our North Country Unfading Mottled Purple and Green slate for the reroof.
Trinity Slate's unfading purple slate was discovered in 1497. In the mid 1800's, almost four hundred years later, excellent and extensive slate deposits were found - the oldest slate deposits in North America.
A Cambrian formation, similar to the famous slate deposits of Wales, which date back over 500 million years.

A slate cutter is needed when jobs require a piece of slate to be a shape other than its rectangular form from the quarry. This can include trimming a piece that is too large, curved cuts and diagonal cuts for hips and valleys.
