Customer Questions & Answers

I'm nervous about the true color of this tile since I'm ordering online. Is this slate deep charcoal to nearly black, as is shown in the picture?

Asked by: Puzzled
It is not as dark as the photo suggests. More of a dark/medium gray than deep charcoal. There may be a finish that makes it darker...

Is there a way to seal the slate to retain the earthy gray colors and not look "wet."

Asked by: eric
I dont like the glossy slate look so I just used a matte sealer. It brings out the richness but still looks very natural.

Exact size of 6" x 24" slate tile

Are the actual measurements equal to the nominal measurements or is the tile smaller --- say 5-3/4" x 23-3/4"?
Asked by: daroogle
The dimensions are 6 in. width x 24 in. length x 3/8 in. thick and the measurements are bigger.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from smashed cracked and broken well for those looking for this tile, its great look and style ....the problem I had is you cant get a I had to order a full arrived smashed broken and basically unusable. like it got thrown around for days.....I still bought this slate tile to use but from another store at a better price, so shop around, the slate tile is absolutely nice......ordering here you take your chances and pay more.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I ordered 2 16 sqft cases and both were severely damaged when I went to pick them up at the store... I ordered 2 16 sqft cases and both were severely damaged when I went to pick them up at the store. What wasn't broken looked beautiful, but being that was less than half of the tiles ordered I was forced to return them. I didn't bother ordering again as I needed to move forward on the job and had no reason to expect any different on a re-order, considering both packages had damage. I went with something carried in-store instead.

I used 1/4" spacers and several of the tiles needed to be cut to keep the spacing equal. Instructions may have specified a smaller grout spacing. Overall, it looks great and the pricing is good. Photo is before grout and sealer. It looks very dark but it does not come out as dark as Home Depot's or my photo suggests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Slate We purchased this online and unfortunately the manufacturer shipped "jade green" slate. However, home depot was excellent. We returned the "jade green" slate, and home depot called up the manufacturer and got it all straightened out, and we got the slate we wanted. This is a dark gray slate out of the box, and is almost black when sealed. We also installed radiant heating underneath as it gets cold in winter. So far I have opened 14 boxes and not one tile was cracked or even chipped. The slate cuts easily with a diamond blade, but makes a lot of dust with a dry cut, so a wet saw would be better for a large job. Overall, I would recommend this product. Very good quality slate!
