Stunning Italian Slate Hearths for Hertford Homes

Your hearth is an essential part of your fire, and that’s why we provide high-quality installations at all times. Our slate hearths have a matte surface, unlike marble and granite which are often polished. This is softer than marble and granite too, making it ideal as a hearth. Get the hearth your home deserves from M A Granite & Marble Works in Hertford, Hertfordshire.

What Type of Fire Do You Have?

When choosing your new slate hearth, you first need to choose the type of fire you want. A log or multi-fuel burner will be encased above it, while an open fire will be on the slate and expose the slate to more extreme heat.

For an enclosed fire, such as a log or multi-fuel burner, a single piece of slate will suffice, providing it has room to expand. An open fire needs to have a sectioned slate hearth, which comes in three or four pieces allowing for rapid expansion as the slate heats up. 

Honed and Riven Slate

There are two major varieties of slate. Honed slate has a semi-smooth matte surface with a uniform texture, while riven slate has a texture surface a little like wood grain. Riven slate is ideal for heavy use as scratches will barely be noticeable.
