Blue Grey Slate - Random Rubble
Our Blue Grey Slate walling stone originates from Co. Donegal. It can be purchased in two forms; random rubble or garden walling. This material is also known as Donegal Slate, which is hugely popular with homeowners and can be seen in homes across Ireland and the UK.
Predominately Blue Grey in colour this material can vary and also contain brownish colour tones. Sometimes homeowners may experience rusting which is due to the natural oxidation of iron deposits within this material. Should iron staining occur it is recommended to avoid using general cleaners that contain acid as this will damage your stonework. We recommend contacting our sales team to source a rust remover designed specifically for natural stone.
We would recommend discussing Blue Grey Slate aka Donegal Slate with your stonemason prior to purchase. This material will often require additional work onsite by your stonemason to further shape / split individual pieces to suit your desired build style. It is important to remember that quarries can change over time and certain build styles that have been achieved years ago may no longer be easily replicated. A stonemason will have their own individual build style and therefore to avoid disappointment its worth discussing material and build style preferences in advance.
Blue Grey Slate random rubble can be supplied in two ways; by bag or loose lorry load offering the following average coverage allowances;
Per Bag : 2.8 - 3.4 m2
Per Loose Lorry Load: 40 - 45 m2
It is recommended to check all material estimations with a professional contractor prior to order or purchase. McMonagle Stone can not be held responsible for inaccurate estimations the above allowances are for guidance purposes only.
