Do slate pavers fade in the sun?

Slate pavers can be used in the sun or shade as the sun does not actually fade them.

  • Slate pavers come in a rainbow of natural colors and hues that delight anyone using them.
  • Slate pavers contain a high degree of the compound, iron. While the pavers don't actually fade like some materials do when in direct sunlight, as they age the iron will work to the surface and you may see lighter streaks of the same color or totally different colored streaks in the paver. Most people find this to be part of the charm of using slate.
