SVK slates can be installed in a variety of ways. There are various installation and covering methods that can be used. Each technique has a specific look which gives the material a wide appearance. Examples include: half stone, mesh covering, Swiss covering, Leuven covering, diamond pattern, etc. Depending on the installation method, the number of slates per m² is calculated, among other things. In addition, the slat spacing for the slates can also be calculated in this way. The ridge finishing of a slate roof depends on the roof slope and/or preference of the architect or client.
