Slate Floor Tile
All natural Slate flooring is unique and quite dense. Its density allows it to also be very strong, have superior durability, be resistant against chipping, scratching, cracking and breaking. It doesn’t need to be sealed on a regular basis to protect it from staining, and it will look amazing for decades if it is cared for. Slate, much like Marble and Quartzite, is one of those timeless tiling options that never go out of style or become outdated. Slate comes in a variety of different shapes and colors.
Tile Installation Scottsdale seals all Slate upon installation with subsurface sealing agents, and we use a final surface barrier to protect against potential stains. We advise higher traffic areas to have a periodic application of surface tile sealant applied.
Grout areas are the most susceptible areas to mildew and stains. These Grout lines will need to be protected on a regular basis, and they can be replaced without having to have the entire floor system re-installed. Because of Slate’s weight, it can take us a bit longer to complete the installation process. Typically, we do not recommend installation of Slate on second floor (or higher) installations due to the weight load it imposes on the building or home. The characteristic of slate tile makes it difficult to plan a particular style around sample pieces that are provided. The easiest way to find the best Slate tile is to come shopping with us!
