Customer Questions & Answers

One picture looks gray and the other looks black, what color is this tile?

Asked by: craykitchen
This darker shows the look if you use an enhancer sealer on it. It will have a more black appearance. If you use a regular sealer it will stay a lighter shade, more dark gray/medium gray.

Size Issue

I ordered the 6x24 tile, but the tile I received is 12x24 which will not work for my project. It could just be a mistake, but I want to make sure that the 6x24 actually exists before I wait for it to ship again. Has anyone sucessfully received that size?
Asked by: WR
I reordered this tile, and I still got the wrong size! It's still 12x24. Going to be looking for another place to buy.

Customer Reviews

Hampshire 16 in. x 16 in. Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile (8.9 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, looks great Beautiful looking tile - not one broken or damaged tile in all 18 cases - strongly recommend using a penetrating sealer like "Enrich and Seal" prior to laying to make cleanup easier. This is an expensive sealer but well worth it. Most of the tiles had a lighter gray color with some having a black look. Also, use a wet saw to cut. There were a few tiles with heavy clefting that I used under counters, stove, and fridge, but overall most were high quality. Make sure and order at least 10% extra to compensate for cuts and waste. I used black grout, modified thin set mortar and Hardie 1/4" backerboard. 1/4" x 1/4" trowel and 1/8" grout lines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gray Tile I didn't actually end up using this tile but it was exactly the color gray I was looking for. I opted for something less porous for my basement bathroom but was very impressed by this tile after looking for countless hours for a rich charcoal gray tile (not the black version). Great price and shipped and arrived quickly unlike some of my other purchased/sample tiles. Only concern was how the color and finish would have changed after sealing so i went with porcelain instead.

They were packed very well and arrived in perfect condition. Although this stone was the exact size I needed for a fireplace hearth, the color was too blue. And I thought that sealing it would make it too black. (I was looking for a medium to dark gray.) They didn't work for my application, but I would recommend this slate for quality if blue or black is what you're looking for.
