True slate is hard and compact and does not undergo appreciable weathering because of it being a dense, fine-grained rock, formed by the metamorphism of shale or clay. Slate is used for floors, electrical panels, window and door sills, baseboards, stair treads, paving stones, laboratory table tops and sinks. Polished slate is used in home's interior designs. It is also widely used for structural and industrial purposes.

Due to the durability of Slate, it is often quarried for roofing material. It is practically non-absorptive, absolutely fire and waterproof, and resistant to climatic changes. Slate roofs have lasted a century, giving a minimum cost per year, in contrast to other types of manufactured roofing which must be re-roofed three or four times within this period. Natural Slate colors, sizes and texture afford many architectural effects, contributing to the appearance and beauty of any building.
