A seamless stone texture with slate blocks arranged in a stretcher pattern


A seamless stone texture with slate arranged in a stretcher pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1363 x 958 mm (53.7 x 37.7 inches) in total, with each individual block measuring approximately 450 x 235mm. The joints are filled with mortar and are 5 mm (0.2 inches) in width.

Slate is a stone product widely adopted as a cladding material within architecture and construction. Slate is most commonly used as a roof shingle or tile, due to its durability, natural waterproofing, and flexibility when cut into individual shapes. Natural slate adopts a natural mid to dark earthy hue, and in addition to roofs, can be used in interior or exterior flooring, stairs, walkways, or wall façades.

This texture uses a running pattern also known as a stretcher bond. The stretcher bond is one of the most common bonds used in masonry construction and uses stretchers, bricks laid flat with their long edge parallel to the wall. Each alternating course is offset by a half stretcher.

This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
