Rivendale Fibre Cement Slate

Finely detailed surface and dressed edge


Rivendale fibre cement roof slate features a riven surface and dressed edge, combining the benefit of modern slate technology with the look of natural slate.

Ideal for use on projects where a natural look is sought, the Rivendale has been used on a number of projects, where sustainability is high priority, including Hawkshaw Lodge by Cambrian Homes, in a green belt conservation area near Bury and the Altrieswood Development by Churchill Homes in Scotland.
