SSQ Riverstone is a high-quality roofing material. It is a premium choice for domestic and commercial roofing projects across the world. Although Riverstone is similar to natural slate in many ways, it is in fact a Phyllite. Phyllite is harder, denser, and stronger than slate making it the perfect material for roofing. If you’re an architect, builders merchant, or roofing specialist who wants to offer your customers the best slate alternative roofing material, here are some essential facts about Riverstone.
As a natural roofing material, Riverstone Phyllite truly won’t be beaten. Whether you’re planning to work on a roof renovation project or a brand-new roof installation, Riverstone is an excellent choice. With Riverstone Slate you can expect the following benefits.
Riverstone Phyllite is mined at the SSQ owned quarry in Argentina. It is one of the world’s most sought-after roofing materials and is extremely rare. For over 560 million years, Riverstone Phyllite has been subjected to extreme geological pressures creating a slate like material which is harder, denser, and stronger than any other roofing materials.
At SSQ, we have spent the last four decades building up our UK stock of Riverstone Phyllite. We have depots across the UK with thousands of pallets of Riverstone ready for supply. This foresight has enabled us to continue to offer our customers super-fast lead times on Riverstone slates to ensure that all building schedules are consistently met.
