Frequently Asked Questions

What is Schist Rock?

Schist is a crystalline rock that has a highly developed schistosity, or tendency to split into layers. Most schists are composed largely of platy minerals such as muscovite, chlorite, talc, sericite, biotite, and graphite. The mineralogy and high water content of the minerals indicate that they were formed under conditions of low temperature and high pressure.

How do I choose my stone?

There are many style options, making choosing your schist an exciting task. We are here to help you to narrow down what you need.

When should I order my stone?

It is best to order the schist early in your build process to avoid waiting, especially in the spring and summer. We try to keep stock of our most popular products so call to see what is available.

Can I place increment orders for a project done in stages?

We can supply in increments; however, we may not be able to colour match perfectly. It is advisable to order all your stone at the same time, even if you will complete the job in stages. 

How do I define the Stacking style?

Stacking style is determined by the amount of grout that remains visible. The stacking style has a dramatic effect on the finished appearance of the stone, it can completely change its character. Narrow joints can complement the look of the stone and provide a solid appearance, while wider gaps can emphasise the individual stone elements. A dry stacked wall, for example, is built using only stone, gravel & backfill material. No mortar or cement.

Do I need an engineering sign off for schist cladding on my building?

In most instances yes, schist is heavier than regular cladding and therefore foundations and bracing must be approved by an engineer.
