Slate roof are natural stone formations that splits very easily into thin sheets, which provide superior protection against rain and snow. They are also very resistant to wind. However, they are occasionally damaged by large hail stones.
Slate is easily split into a uniform thickness, is impermeable to water, easy to shape and durable!
Slate is a good building material because it is hard and strong and isin't affected by weather or chemical pollution
Because it is good at blocking out rain, can stick good, not very costly, and it is tough.
Slate is hard and waterproof, and can be split into thin layers, making it especially suitable for roofing tiles.
It is impermeable and cleaves into thin sheets. The cleaved sheets of slate are also easily shapeable with common hand tools.
It can be split into thin, flat layers.
whell i guess a soild mixed with it
To clean slate, mix a bit of lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda and make a paste. Rub the mixture on the slate and then rinse off.
A material or an object that does not easily allow heat, electricity, light, or sound to pass through it. Air, cloth and rubber are good electrical insulators; feathers and wool make good thermal insulators.
Density is the amount of material which will make up something. Density can be varied accordingly to make items of the same material, but for different uses.
The easiest way to identify slate is to break a sample. Slate will cleave very easily in one direction and form large sheets. It can often be popped off in thin layers with a chisel or a screwdriver. Shale is a similar stone, but will tend to break somewhat irregularly with ripples that cross between layers and it will be more fragile and prone to crumbling. Both have no significant grain to them, unlike other stones that break in sheets like sandstone. If you see mica or other minerals spread homogenously throughout the stone then it's not slate. Slate can be a variety of colors, most common a blueish gray, but also be greenish gray, rust brown, tan, or a purpley-brown. It may have impurities that leave colored spatters within it. Slate is very soft, and can readily be scored and polished with another stone. If mixed with a little water, the resulting slate dust will turn into clay, the sediment from which shale and slate are made.
The answer is Slate. It is similar to Shale. It is still used but much less than 80 years ago. Slate is used in upscale roofing applications.
Slate is naturally flaky, and easily splits into plates that can be used for roofing. Gneiss doesn't.
Slate has been quarried and split to make roofing slates for centuries. It splits easily (after a bit of practise) and is very durable.
Marble and slate are both used by humans in buildings. Marble is used to make a number of items such as flooring and countertops. Slate is used primarily for roofing shingles.
Shale is used as filler in paint, plastic, roofing cement; as raw material for bricks; as landscaping and driveway material, and in some cases as a source of oil.
Neither. Their popular tables are built with a composite surface that is claimed to be nearly as good as slate. They also do make at least 1 model that uses slate.
Metamorphic rocks are used for so many different things. They are commonly used to make slate which is used for roofing and marble which is used t make counter tops among other uses.
The material used to make the shingles on a roof determines how often a roof needs to be replaced. For example, barring damage from extreme circumstances, slate shingles will probably last the entire lifetime of a house, where as asphalt shingles will probably need to be replaced every 15 to 30 years.
Slate is highly durable, so damage from a doberman should not be an issue, however, slate can also be slippery and make it more difficult for any dog to walk on.
all im gonna say is " you dont "but you can make things out of slate.
Almost any rock can be used for buildings, but one of the most common is limestone, which can be used directly, but is more often made into cement or concrete. Slate is used for roofing.
Slate rock is normally used for roof tiles etc.
