Can these stones be used to cover a brick hearth of a fireplace that we don't use. It would not be walked on or anything placed on it. Do we also need backerboard over the brick first? Can Home Depot install this for me?

Answer: 
Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. Anything replacing the hearth must be fireproof and would simply follow the same process as laying tile.
1.Spread an even layer of thinset mortar over the bricks with a trowel. Smooth out the mortar to create a flat, even surface over the bricks, filling in any indentations, grooves or bumps on the brick. This will provide the flat surface

Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. Anything replacing the hearth must be fireproof and would simply follow the same process as laying tile.
1.Spread an even layer of thinset mortar over the bricks with a trowel. Smooth out the mortar to create a flat, even surface over the bricks, filling in any indentations, grooves or bumps on the brick. This will provide the flat surface necessary to install the tile later. Let the mortar dry for at least 24 hours.
2. Lay out the tile directly on the hearth to help determine the pattern they will be installed in. Set the first tile in the center, front of the hearth and place the next tiles evenly around it. This will put the cut tiles at the back and sides of the installation and provide an even, balanced tile job.
3. Cut the tiles to fit the edges of the installation on a tile wet saw and double check their fit with the other loose tiles on the hearth. Remove all the tiles in the opposite order you will install them.
4. Spread a second, thin coat of thinset mortar over the hearth. Press each tile into the mortar firmly until the hearth has been covered. Let the mortar dry for 24 to 48 hours.
5. Grout the tiles by smearing the grout over the entire hearth with a grout float. Hold the float at a 45-degree angle to the hearth to pack the grout between the tiles. DO NOT DIG. Turn the float to 90-degrees to scrape the excess grout off the surface of the tiles and direct it toward the joints.
6.Let the grout dry for 10 minutes, then wash off the surface of the tiles with a damp grout sponge. Rinse out the sponge frequently until the tiles are clean. Let the grout dry for 24 hours. You can hire a contractor within store level to install from home depot if needed but this is a guide of what you should expect the installer to do during install.We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

It is recommended that the natural slate is sealed. We plan to use it in a bathroom. Is there a particular sealant you recommend for use on these tiles?

Answer: 
There are 2 types of sealers, please see below:
Penetrating/impregnating stone sealers are a no-sheen, natural look sealer that can be water-based or solvent-based, good for interior and exterior applications. Most quality sealers of this type are rated to protect the stone for several years.
Stone enhancer sealers are also a no-sheen, penetrating/impregnating sealer that is formulated to darken, enrich

Stone enhancer sealers are also a no-sheen, penetrating/impregnating sealer that is formulated to darken, enrich and highlight the natural color and beauty of stone products. They will rejuvenate and improve the appearance of worn and weathered stone. Always test loose pieces of stone to ensure desired effect with enhancing sealers. However, they will also darken the color of grout joints. They are, generally, suitable for interior and exterior use, and rated to protect the stone for several years.

Is the Daltile stone by the same name the same product as the American Olean?

I'm interested in the Sunset Glory slate and it seems to be sold elsewhere as American Olean Sunset Glory. Here it looks to be the same product listed as Daltile Sunset Glory. I know these two companies are linked so I wanted to know if there was any difference between the products before ordering (I checked out the American Olean but you don't have the Daltile version in stock to see in person).

Thanks1

Low quality chinese slate that fractures very easily. All three boxes had broken slate and poorly packaged by Dal. All in all I got one box out of three but won't waste my time laying it. The price is too high for the quality of slate this is.

It was 100lbs of broken cement. It is a disgrace that Home Depot sells this product. It should be discontinued forthwith. I called and complained. I was told that the product did not leave Home Depot in that condition. Any manufacturer looking at that product before packaging had to have known or should have known that it was junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed We have these tiles in our foyer and kitchen so when we decided to tile in front of our sliding glass door, we naturally chose this tile. We purchased two boxes to get the job done and when we opened the boxes were disappointed to find almost half were chipped or broken.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me So many broken and chipped pieces. Some were really pretty and I love the idea of stone but just too much work involved as all the pieces are different thicknesses too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The California Gold Slate is absolutely beautiful! We laid it next to Walnut dark hardwood flooring and it is perfect match. This slate was easy to install, it cut easy on a cheap tile saw. We were careful and able to cut one tile almost all the way through for a heat vent. Thought for sure it would break, but it didn't. We did use some dupont sealant that makes the final look almost wet. Very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Naturally wonderful slate! Issue is the not appearance or installation, but the broken pieces really make it hard to swallow the price. Love the natural stone and am actually ordering more, but fear the amount of breakage and having to go back to the store makes the overall experience less WONDERFUL! Home Depot has been great with ordering and assisting!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy Extra We had to buy almost double quantities because the quality of the slate was so poor. We did end up finding enough pieces to do the job, which turned out great, but it was pretty inconvenient to have to go back for more slate several times. I'd suggest opening the boxes at HD and picking out the good ones ahead of time, or be prepared to return the rejects. They did take everything we didn't use back, even the ones that were broken.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Irregular/inconsistent sizing, cracked easily Were going to install @10 sq ft fireplace hearth area on diagonal. Several tiles cracked/broke when we simply removed from box & set on carpeted area. Also, not all 12"x12"...some 12 1/8", some 11 7/8" etc...didn't discover until trying to dry fit. Home Depot store great w/online order return though, & we replaced w/a tile we bought in store.
