Why are these old white-washed glass slates so popular?
Slates are a common sight at hotels, apartments and homes across Australia.
They’re an integral part of modern furniture design, but they’ve been around for thousands of years.
While they can be an attractive and versatile surface, they can also have a long history of damage and neglect.
Some of the most common causes of slates’ poor performance include: a lack of ventilation and a lack in maintenance.
Slates can have a number of structural and cosmetic defects that can render them unusable, but these can also be repaired and can provide a cleaner look.
“It’s very common for a roof, or even a slab in a house, to be in good condition.
But if the roof is being maintained and the roof slats are getting worn, then the roof can fall down, or if there’s no maintenance there’s not much there to repair it,” Mr Saffioti said.
Some of these issues can be fixed by simply changing the angle of the slats. “
But if the slates are not in good shape, or there are structural defects that require repairs, it’s very easy for that roof to fall down.”

“If you’re going to do a modern kitchen, then you’ve got to do something about those slates.
You can’t just go and throw them away.
You’ve got got to fix them,” Mr Phelan said.
The problem can be even more serious in the case that the roofing system is not properly maintained, or the slating is not as sturdy as it should be.
“The glass can get bent in a few places.
And it’s not the fault of the roof.
It’s the fault with the roof, and if the system doesn’t work properly then there’s a lot of damage to the roof,” Mr Withers said.
Mr Sattani says the best solution is to get the slat into a specialised moulding, which can be created by using different materials and techniques.
“There are many different types of moulds.
And you can find moulds for a lot less than you think, which you can use for a few thousand dollars,” he said.
When the slated roof gets worn down, there’s often a chance of it becoming unsightly and potentially damaging the slabs.
But it’s important to remember that, even if the structural defects aren’t the fault for a slating’s failure, the damage is still there.
“They can become quite ugly.
But they’re still in good, good condition,” Mr Lacey said.
