The Traditional architecture in
the Cevennes is purely based on natural materials extracted on the spot namely
chestnut-wood and slatestone.
That's why the cévenole architecture in her total design forms a perfect harmony
with nature and even makes really part of it...
The slatestone-quarry Galta is a unic vein in it's genre. The faint gradient and the
good constitution of it's strata makes it possible to extract stones of very big
These slatestones are particular appreciated as roof-borders (égoutiers), lintels, monumental tables, bancs for
outside and even gravestones.
Since the National Parc is created the
respect for traditional roofing has gained popularity, eversince you can
see more and more beautiful shiny slate-stone roofs.
|A repared or remade roof with this
quality of slatestone is durable and harmonizes pefectly with the surroundings; even
after a very long time it keeps its original aspect.
Galta's schiste is a particular because it's without pyrite and
the risk to rust.
Slatestones also are very suitable floor-tiles;
for inside and outside, for a good-looking floor, stairs, terraces etc.
In compliance with your taste you can choose irregular natural forms or symmetric
grinded forms like square rectangular or hexagonal.
This noble nice material honours in every respect the
patrimony, used since centuries. Slatestone never disappoints, it is a very robust
material, easy to upkeep and satisfying to live on ! Contact us for information, welcome to visit the exposition of
our products at the quarry.
