Honister slate walling is an important part of any project, providing you with a beautiful, luxurious finish for both traditional and modern styles.
It is important to prepare the area if it is a modern look with a smaller stone required or a more traditional finish which can be more lenient for a larger type of walling stone. All our walling types comes in a different ‘bed’ which is the depth of your wall.
For the more modern look, you will be looking at walling which has been half machined and finished by hand. This is a popular stone as it is easier to work and quicker to build. Great for exterior cladding or a chimney breast inside for that modern farmhouse look.
The more rustic walling has not been touched my machine and are the more natural picked rustic stone which require a larger bed. The other term for this is weathered walling and it’s enjoying a surge in popularity in period properties or projects where aged authenticity matters. It is very popular with local buildings under strict building regulations. It oozes character.
