I have a ton of that stuff, weathered too.
Get at me, I'll send you a sample.

I sent you a message yesterday, did you receive it? It also included a photo of my stock as well as an option for new.

Thank you...

I took a picture of the slate inside the house on a white background, and obviously some of the slate on the roof. It is very hard and dense like Buckingham, but has a rougher texture. I am sure that 3/8" would do.

Old School:
I checked my stock to see what I might have along the lines of 1/2" thick Bucks and came up with only 3/8" at best.

I do have a Vermont Gray Black that is close in color and texture (fairly dark in color). I can send you pic if you might get use out of it.

Otherwise, I've put in a request to one of my suppliers to see if there's more options.

If you want to see a pic of what we have in stock, send me an email: epl@claytileroof.com.

Thanks...

Could be. It is black, but hinting to a bit of gray, and it has a bit of texture to it. I was thinking peach bottom. They are just 14's random, but a beautiful roof. It hasn't hit its' stride yet and it is 80 years old.

From first glance, I'd have to agree with John. This appears to be a Buckingham Slate.

Monson has the countersunk drilled holes. I think it's a course grained Buckingham, but it also might be Peach Bottom. I'd have to see a sample in my hands to be sure.

About 70 years old and in great shape. We have to do a few repairs and I need about 30-40 pieces. 14" x random, about 1/2" thick.
