Slate roof tiles are ordered by size and thickness. In some cases, you may need to trim slate to smaller pieces or cut slate based on a roof pattern. The following steps along with the video will show you how easy it is to cut slate roof tiles.
Flip the slate roof tile over so that the back of the slate is facing up. This will be the smoothest side of the slate.
Using a nail or marker, draw the pattern’s shape or a line if you are resizing a piece.
When cutting slate roof tiles it will generate slate particles and dust, make sure you are working in a well-ventilated area.
