Customer Questions & Answers

Visible surface: honed or natural cleft?

I'm guessing that for these tiles "Gauged" is referring either to the overall uniform thickness or the scoring on the backside to assist in adhering with the thinset. Is the visible surface honed (completely smooth) or natural cleft (rough with the natural layers of the slate)? I ask because we'd like to use these for a countertop and are concerned about maintaining cleanliness if the surface is not honed smooth. Thanks!
Asked by: Maureen
Visible surface is cleft - back is honed. Not good for countertop

Outside use?

I want a natural stone look around my backyard pond. I'm cementing them down. Why can't I use this product and let it age?

Montauk Black 12 in. x 24 in. Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile (10 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 101.

Arrived promptly and packaged well. With the stone being natural, you do need to go through the boxes. Not one stone is the same, but that's the best part! Love the variation. Just go through the pieces to make sure there is no unwanted pattern. Some pieces are solid in color, either light or dark and some have ridges that give it character. Out of the 25 boxes I ordered, there was maybe 1 box that was unusable as a full tile, but that is to be expected as well. These tiles are HEAVY! Make sure your floor is prepared and supported correctly. Tile size was very consistent. I installed with tight 1/16" joints and looks great. Using a wetsaw, these tiles cut like butter. Everyone that comes over is very impressed with the finished product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, Durable Tile We used this tile in the mudroom from our garage. It has some variation in height due to the fact that it's a natural stone and has variation in color from gray to black. We tried to sort through the boxes to mix the colors throughout the room. It cut great with a wet saw, no cracking, even on all the corners I had with the herringbone pattern. We sealed it 2 times before grouting and had no problem with our sanded grout sticking to it, although we were diligent in keeping up with wiping the excess grout off. The condition of every tile was excellent as we opened each box. Overall, I think it will be a nice entrance that we'll enjoy for many years.

I purchased these tiles for the floor in our screened in porch in April 2017. After searching for many weeks for a floor tile for our new addition, I stumbled on these tiles in a search. I went to my local Home Depot and purchased one tile, brought it home, and thought the color and texture were exactly what I was looking for. The best part is the price! I was thrilled to pay about $3/sq ft for what looks like a luxury tile. I purchased approx. 160 sq ft and the installer mixed the pieces from the different boxes. If you look at the photos, you can see variations in the color. It looks natural spread out across the floor. I absolutely love the finished look of the floor. Because this is a natural tile, there are many variations in color, the surface texture is rough, and the color changed slightly when I sealed it. It's a dark, smoky, blue grey. It's such a warm, neutral color that blends with the furniture and the outside.

We installed about 300 sq.ft. of this tile in a kitchen and breakfast nook. The tile looks excellent. The tile dimensions are perfectly regular, which made it easier for the installer to get all of the grout lines perfectly lined up. There is a good amount of surface contour on the stone, so it looks like real slate instead of ceramic tile. The color is uniform grey and black, but no green or brown as in some other slate materials. The price from Home Depot was excellent - it was cheaper than other sources for the same stone. I ordered the product on-line and had it shipped to the store, which was painless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to look at This product had me from the moment I saw it online. When I opened the first box, I was a bit taken back, because it did not look quite the same as i thought it would. It was very dusty and dirty, and I was concerned it would not end up looking like I had hoped. It was very easy to cut and work with, and very strong (sometimes slate can be flakey until you get it glued and sealed, making it fragile while taking it out of the box and moving it around, not this stuff.) At the end of the project after plenty of sealing, it looks STUNNING. All in all a GREAT choice. Easy to clean AFTER sealed, but you must clean repeatedly prior to sealing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy!! We are very happy with this tile after installing in our master bathroom shower. Since this is slate, it was hard to get everything level during the installation due to the varying depths of the tile. I sealed the tile multiple times before grouting and it was still a struggle to get the grout off the tile. We used the Fusion grout which dries super quick and was easily absorbed by the slate. This resulted in doing just a few inches of grout, cleaning and taking a wire brush to the tile to remove the grout that was absorbed by the slate. It was very tedious but it was worth it in the end. We used platinum grout which provides a nice contrast against the dark gray. Highly recommend!!

It is beautiful and installation was a breeze. I had my order delivered and I am glad that I did, as each box is pretty heavy. The slate is perfect for almost any application, I used it in our master bathroom as we have a farmhouse, however, this slate could be used in a contemporary setting just as easily. I LOVE IT!

I don't believe the low price and the high quality. Working with it now, easy to cut to size and hole drilling turned out perfect. I can't wait to see my final results. (using it to make a special wall hanging for an extra special family member) Also I do not believe the low price of shipping....... It was very heavy and arrived in wonderful condition.
