Usage

Popular for both interiors and exteriors, slate tiles are commonly used for flooring and wall tiles as well as pool edges, barbecues, and chimneys.

In addition to its attractive appearance, slate is practical as well. It has an abrasion-resistant, anti-slippery structure on wet grounds. As an added benefit, it feels cool during the summer and warm during the winter. It’s fantastic for radiating warmth. You can even install heating systems beneath the tiles, making them excellent flooring for restrooms.

Like other natural stones, slate has an integral resilience that makes it immune to fractures, scratches, breaks, as well as chips. It is generally a great flooring product for heavy-traffic areas.

Slate is a relatively upscale floor covering material. Although its preliminary cost can be rather high, particularly for high-quality materials, it will increase the worth of your estate. Due to its high price, it’s usually reserved for the most visible rooms in residences.

Design

Slate has countless solid shades and shade combinations, a product of earth-born artistry.

The tiles have a variety of textures as well. While refined tiles are perfectly smooth, some forms of slate may have rough and cleft texture. The placement of cleft slate should be carefully considered, as it can sometimes feel awkward.

A disadvantage of slate is its irregularity. It can sometimes be challenging to obtain the accurate layout look you desire as a result. If you do not have an extra supply of tiles available, future repairs can be challenging. We recommend buying extra tiles to avoid any future problems.

Installation

Although the installation of slate tile is similar to that of ceramic, it is crucial to precisely install slate due to its fragile nature. Like other natural stones, slate is challenging to cut without special equipment. We recommend leaving it to the professionals

Slate is an extremely hefty material, and there are occasionally structural problems when installing it in upstairs areas. In some instances, you may even need to reinforce the flooring framework in order to sustain the floor covering.

Occasionally, a tile may be harmed by a fierce impact, natural damage, weather, or moulting. Unlike various other natural rocks, you can replace easily damaged slate tiles. However, since slate often tends to vary in shade and appearance, it can be hard to match new tiles to the old ones.

Maintenance

There is a certain amount of maintenance required to maintain the attractive appearance of a slate tile floor.

When installed, the floor tiles should be secured with a permeating sealer to close small pores in the rock. Depending on the area and the condition, you may have to reapply the sealant regularly.

The grout lines on slate tile are prone to damage. Any type of movement on the tiles can cause the cement lines to break. Also, they can be susceptible to stains, mould, and mildew, especially in moist areas.
