A great place to see a slate-sided downtown area is the little port of Honfleur in Calvados-Normandy. Lots of black slate can be seen on the town's website at:

I would like to thank Martin for comeing to the 2007 SRCA conference and his demo on slate art. He used a hammer as a slaters stake to do all of his work. That inspired my self to hand craft my own slater stake. And would not have been able to make this pc of the goose with out it. You can always learn new/but old tricks. On the second goose, I broke only two pcs after changeing to the stake.

Be careful with the slate walk up to the mural... It looks convincing enough that people might walk into it and you could be left with a silhouette of a person instead of a duck! :)

Yes, I am useing a vanishing point or its really a vanishing line. When the second half is done it will really come out. I was inspired by the pictures in Joe's book, two links from the resource guide in the book, and a Fine Homebuilding back cover. I am also think of doing a slate walk up to it, out of the same colors? Well we will see!

Hello Thomas, there isn't alot to say. Its really just like doing it on the roof, but your head lap can be less. It gives you a better look at the characteristic of the slate. Also you will have no painting to do after. On all the sideing I have done I use used slate so the colors are going to stay what they are for the most part. For most of the projects I did flash in the inside and outside corners. I use lead because it soft and forms to the slate and wall better. Keeping your slate flatter. I just buy rolls of lead from the local hardware store and cut it to size. I have never done any sideing with battens. The house with the black slate has a mix of plywood and 1" boards. The other was a older house, so it was all board. In your case I would do one of two things. One install a layer of boards or two use copper ringshank nails, with a sealant to install to the sides of your dormers. On one part of the my house and garage (the garage has green on it, see picture) the one with the black slate, there is apart that is only 1/2" plywood. I have had no problem yet, but it was a little bouncy.

This is reclaimed slate from a building on Long Island NY, bought from Steve Taren @ Taren Bros Slate Company Vermont.

This slate siding looks awesome. These pictures are eye opening really - for someone like myself who hasn't seen siding like this. (Joe has a tempting picture of siding in his slate book too.) I went to the Slate Affair web site, and the copper work you have done is very nice too. The treehouse is over-the-top. :)

I would like to slate the sides of two small (dog-house-style) dormers. Do you have any tips/advice? (Or things to avoid?) It looks like you use a copper flashing detail at the tops of the windows - that makes sense. Do you think it is necessary to flash inside the corners where the walls form a 90, or not? Are there battens underneath? I'm doubtful whether my nails would hold in the OSB. (my walls are SIPs - those foam panels with OSB on two sides)

I made all the copper detail on a shear and 8 foot brake in Slate Affair Inc. shop. Useing the wood trim as some what of a pattern. If you have every seen the way vinyl is installed, it is about the same. Some soldering on the top of the windows and I use silicone under the copper in areas as extra protection for water travel.
You can see the sun burst has parts that drain in to the windows and needed extra work to make it water resistant.

Just wait till the rich copper patina develops, which is going to last with the lifetime longevity of the slate siding.

Please send a CD to Joseph Jenkins, Inc. at 143 Forest Lane, Grove City, PA 16127. High resolution photos are best. I would prefer all of them so I can select what I need.

The basic info I need is how you did the installation. Battens? Solid boards underneath? Plywood siding? Air spaces? Etc., Plus info about your business. I can get that over the phone, although a sketch of the substrate might be helpful (e.g. batten system).
