and case histories, who have invested in their suppliers and supply chain, and who are in it for the long term. More importantly, consider invest- ing in premium branded slate, where all warranties will be honoured, even if the slate quarry that supplies the slate ceases to produce. Never be fooled by “lifetime” warranties.

So, protect yourself and your busi- ness by considering the reputation and integrity of your supplier the next time you are specifying natural slate.
