PetraSlate Tile & Stone evolved out of the growing desire for quality slate products in Colorado. Since Colorado is far from the slate quarries that run along the border of New York and Vermont – and even farther from the quarries in Brazil, China, and India; slate was thought of as an “exotic” stone in the early 90’s. PetraSlate Tile & Stone recognized the growing demand for premium grade slate roofing, floor, and wall tile and aimed to provide for that demand by sourcing natural slate tiles from the best quarries around the world.
Over the last 30 years we have grown into the largest wholesale stocking distributor of premium slate products in Colorado. Over that time we have identified the properties that make good slate products, the slate that works best in certain conditions, and how to tell the difference before it’s too late. One thing for certain, all slate is not equal. Color consistency, hardness, tile gauging, and the material makeup of the stone can have a huge impact on what the finished product looks like, and equally important, how long it lasts. This is why we only buy slate from quarries with the highest quality standards.
With this infrastructure in place our obvious next step was to expand our product lines into other unique floor and wall covering items, such as mosaics, real stacked stone veneers, artistic etched tile; and hardscape products like concrete barn plank pavers.
We invite flooring companies, tile installers, architects, and other construction craftsmen to view the many product lines within our site and contact us with any requests for samples or literature.
