Slate Tile


Slate is a fine-grained metamorphic rock with a subtle, natural beauty.

  • Resists fading, abrasion and chemicals
  • Impervious to freeze/thaw cycles
  • Highly durable; expect a beautiful appearance for many years
  • Extremely porous; requires regular sealing
  • Recommended for both interior and exterior floor, wall and specialty uses, such as stair treads, tabletops and cladding
  • Not recommended for exterior or interior floors that attract a lot of water or grease

Durability - Properly installed slate tile floors last virtually forever
Water Absorption - Varies by stone
Maintenance - Dust mop regularly; damp mop with mild, pH-neutral stone cleaner
Cost - Starts low, at $2 per square foot; custom orders can be expensive
