Exterior Wall Slate ?'s


What are your experiences with this stuff. The pieces come in 10H x 16w. Depth but is about 1 1/2". Flippin heavy too, bout three times that of a comparable cultured stone. What would you expect to pay for this?

Maybe it's just me. but the wet look in the northwest is hot, and at 80$ a gallon for the sealer it isn't cheap either. Guess you could just leave it dull/natural if that's your fancy. Are there real slate products that are " lick and stick"? like I described?

FYI, front door is covered. Regardless, its well waterproofed.

Those asking for prices are judged quickly. There are so many variables, besides that's one thing you should know as a G.C.
