SSQ RIVERSTONE Unfading Grey Phyllite was used to preserve the integrity of the First Presbyterian Church in Red Bank, NJ, United States.
Located two miles from the Atlantic Ocean, on the highest elevation in the area, the church roofs and steeples take abuse from salt-laden high winds, the scorching summer sun and pelting freezing rain, ice and snow. The selection process considered various materials to replace the existing Pennsylvania slate, that had been in service for 50 years. The replacement material had to be natural as well as a strong, durable and dependable covering that provided safety and inspired confidence. A material with longevity, which would serve future generations.
Carrying up to 100-year guarantee Riverstone Phyllite was the logical choice. With one of the lowest water absorptions available, unfading grey colour and exceptional test results, Riverstone is guaranteed against the harshest weather conditions.
