Slate Hearths by Custom Slate

High quality slate hearths made to measure & delivered throughout the UK

At Custom Slate we are specialists in supplying made-to-measure fireplace hearths. We are able to produce slate hearths to almost any size or shape to meet your requirements. Whilst quality is very important to us, we feel that it important to offer this top level service at a competitive price. Being a small specialist business we are able to keep our costs relatively low, and this benefits our customers.

The first step is to contact us to discuss your hearth requirements. From the details / dimensions you provide to us, we will be able to calculate prices and options by return email. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have.

The prices we quote are “all inclusive”, without any hidden extras. Therefore as well as cutting the slate to your required size, the price will also include all edgework, finishing, sealing and packing of the slate. Edgework options are: chamfered and pencil round.

Edge detail

The perfect finish to your bespoke slate hearth

At Custom Slate we offer the choice of 2 edge detail options: the chamfered edge, and the pencil round edge. This gives the perfect finish to the exposed sides of your made-to-measure slate hearth. Both options will complement your slate, giving that truly ‘finished’ look. Your quoted price will be ‘all inclusive’, which means there is no extra charge for either of these edgework options.

Our hearth making process

From the slate selection right through to delivery

Once the design and dimensions of the hearth have been decided, the procedure for making the hearth follows this sequence:

1. Selection

A slab is selected and carefully checked for suitability. If any defects or unsightly inclusions are found then the slab is not used.

2. Cut to Shape

The hearth is cut to size and shape. We have modern high-tech equipment & machinery here at Custom Slate for precision work.

3. Honing Process

The top surface of the slate undergoes a 5 stage honing process,giving the slate its perfect matt smooth finish (Italian honed finish slate only).

4. Edge Detailing

The customer’s choice of edge detail is put on the exposed sides. Edgework options are: chamfered and pencil round.

5. Cleaning

After all the above has been done the slate is ready to be washed clean and then coated with a sealant.

6. Delivery

And finally there is the final check and the slate is packed ready for collection or delivery.
