The tile will be installed on a floor that is off the ground but still subjected freeze temperatures. Porch has footings below the frost line. Since the tile is not directly being installed to the ground, is there still concern about frost?

Rustique Earth 12 in. x 12 in. Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile (10 sq. ft. / case) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful when you are done Tricky to lay, thinner pieces are breakable. We've used this slate before. You must seal it with a stone sealer before grouting or you will be sorry. Lay the pieces out from several boxes to mix the colors before adhering to your floor. We used tiny, tiny, grout lines - we like the uneven lay of the floor. Looks awesome with a high gloss finish. At first we did matte, just doesn't bring the stone's beauty out enough. Once it's down and grouted, breakage is not an issue - except those occasional high corners due to size differences. They just wear down over time

Product is represented to be 8.9 sq' per case, only received 7.25 sq', 3 of the 5 tiles were broken and only one fell into the Rustic Earth Color tone, the other tiles were gray-black with an occasional splotch of Rustic Earth

Also easy to break, I opened many boxes with broken pieces. No, I will not recommend this material to anyone else.

It's a beautiful natural stone with coloring variations within and between squares. Used for a fireplace hearth and matches the Rustique stacked stone panels I used for the front of the fireplace well. It's a pain to install though and I was glad I ordered a lot of extra. First, many of the tiles in the box were cracked or split, especially corners. We laid out all the tiles we had and sorted them for color and thickness and to have the chipped parts in cut off sections. They also are tricky to cut, tend to break or shear layers off so lost a few more there. The huge thickness variation between squares (and sometimes from side to side on a square tile) made it impossible to get a totally level floor and there are uneven seams, but my tile guy did a decent job of matching and said the variation is part of the charm of natural stone floors. We went with no grout and that seemed to work well. I did some leveling of the seams by taking a small hammer and chisel and carefully shearing off layers of stone, so where the height varied the variations were moved to be within the tile along natural looking tile layers, rather than having differences at the edges where tiles meet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tile for a good price I almost didn't order this tile because of the negative reviews I read regarding tiles being broken on arrival, but I am glad I took the chance. I ordered online and had them delivered to the store. The boxes had a lot of foam padding and out of the two boxes I ordered not a single tile was broken. The tile itself looked very much like the picture, and despite the variations, they all felt like they fit the same theme. Some of the tiles flaked a bit on the top, and they weren't all the same thickness, but I was expecting that with real slate tiles. I would definitely buy them again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice tiles but... I purchased these tiles to add to some I already had from HD and Lowes. Did not really need whole tiles because I intend to cut them as subway tiles to mix in with my other ones, which is a good thing because 7 out of 10 were broken! I can't really blame Home Depot or the company these came from because these were shipped to my home and fault may be with the shipping. They were packed fairly well, but did not have a FRAGILE sticker on the box, which probably would have helped reduce the amount of broken tiles. I work for a package carrier, and I know first hand how heavy boxes are treated. If I needed whole tiles I would be very upset, but I will keep them and try to get as many cuts out of them as I can. There will definitely be more waste, but I need the color. My suggestion is to have them shipped to store for pickup, and also that the company start putting FRAGILE stickers on the boxes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice slate poor "factory" packaging The slate was and is beautiful, I always enjoy opening up the boxes and see the differences of each piece and it own individual features, as stated the factory packaging was less than desired, as there were cracked pieces internal in the boxes, we had enough to do the project and it turned out looking great, do to the fact it is natural materials, the thickness varies and setting it can be a challenge as one piece may be 3/8" thick on one edge and 1/4 on the other side, so one will have to adjust the bedding mortar accordingly. grouting is more challenging as well as it is unsealed, product and one needs to keep working on the washing of the tiles for a longer time than with the ceramic glazed products, if one does not, a grout haze could be left on the slate, this may take three or more hours of time, after grouting, (note: the counter tile is the slate on this order, the wall slate was slate from earlier purchase from HD, for wood stove backing)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with my purchase I knew they were not perfectly cut, since they are natural stone, but that is part of the look. I created a platform for a wood burning stove and I love it. Just take your time installing them and practice the layout first. None broke during shipping, but I gave it a 4 stars because I wish they were cut closer to the same thickness.
