Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kenny size and finish issues
We ordered ten boxes of Imperial Black Tile to lay in a new kitchen mixed with Imperial Rust. The Black tile was nearly an eighth of an inch smaller than the Rust tiles and one box of Black was not properly glazed and had a dull finish. This was not obvious until the floor was laid and cleaned. I will need to remove the tiles and replace them. But prior to using more tiles, they will need to be inspected carefully to assure quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RuralAddict Beautiful, but not true slate
I thought this would be "true slate" but it was not. Very beautiful, but not what I wanted. I gave the 2 boxes I ordered to my daughter for whatever! Also, 2 tiles were broken when I opened the box. I went to the Gig Harbor store and found the real slate that I wanted. Love it. My contractor (selected from your Red Beacon website) & I designed a pattern for fireplace surround and hearth,, now on wall waiting to be grouted so he can install custom mantel made from a log. Red Beacon is an awesome site, & he has been working several projects for me for almost a year now

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SciTchr Inconsistent quality
This is a "slate look" ceramic tile. I ordered one box just to see if I liked it and did, so I ordered 10 more boxes to do 2 bathrooms. That went great so we decided to do the entryway also and ordered 4 more boxes to finish that area. This batch was completely different--so dull it looked like no glaze had been applied. I returned that batch and ordered again. This was marginally better but still not the same as the first. The new ones are obviously more dull than the first and even 1/8 inch smaller, which messed up the grout lines. You can feel the difference in the surfaces. Very disappointing because the 1st batch was so beautiful.

Once I found this item at HomeDepot.com, I spent 2+ weeks googling this product for a cheaper place to buy it; not because it wasn't a good price here, but simply because I like to find THE best deal. I loved these tiles, and would settle for no less, but had to try to find them cheaper. Come to find out, despite being cheaper at other places, you have to purchase so many of them (more than you need), and shipping is in the $200 range because of the weight of the product, that I went with the ones from here. I am very glad I did, because I could order how many I needed/wanted, and shipping was only $15! they are the most beautiful tile I have ever laid eyes on. They look like natural stone, with hints of gray, brown, and blue-green, without looking fake, or being too much for the black slate look I was going for. My new bathroom has been completely remodeled around these tiles, and I couldn't be happier! I would definitely recommend them to anyone. My husband had them set in one day, and grouted the next; he sealed the grout as soon as we woke up the next day too; installation was a breeze!

Tile looks beautiful! A bit pricey but needed a few additional tiles to complete the job so was glad to find them at HD. Shipping was quick and items were well packaged.

Liked both the Rust & Black tiles but because of the colorings, opted to just install the black. Delivery to the house was easy, tiles all intact and they look great with the fireplace mantle, carpets and paint.
