Highly skid-resistant, it's an exceptional flooring choice and also performs splendidly as fireplace facade, backsplash, countertop, shower wall or accent surfacing.

how will this product do with the occasional dog urine

I have an 8 yr old rescued dog who will have accidents when she is scared by loud noises fireworks etc.
Asked by: brassring
Thankfully, no experience with that, as yet. However, i would seal-the-heck out of that slate, with that thought in mind, should you decide to put it down! Seal the tile, the grout and keep it up to par, always, resealing as the manufacturer suggests, at least.

Could this be used as a backsplash and sealed after it is installed?

Asked by: Lakelady
I'd say it's make a beautiful backsplash -- as you say, with UBER-sealer, however! You want to be able to clean this, not be a slave. Over time, the uneven layers, may accumulate "gunk", however ...something to consider.

I want to lay this outside as a walkway. How do I prepare the ground for laying this tile? It's currently dirt.

Asked by: kristin
Howdy Kristin, This is almost not possible , you have 2 choices. add cement slab and use slate over it, or you can dig down around it, put in about 2" of sand for a base, then use pavers or bricks, and create the extension out of that. Slate is good heavy and strong when it has proper backing. You cant use it on dirt because soil moves, sinks, gets soggy and mushy, and allows air to get in and under. Slate tiles are easy to break stepping on it in dirt, you can never dig it down enough to stop its slopping around and becoming fragile. A better alternative would be to use Envirotile over paver base. Happy paving, Coach Dave

Customer Reviews

Three Rivers Gold Pattern Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile (16 sq. ft. / case) is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slate tile I expected a higher percentage of breakage than with most tile when ordering and it was a good thing. Of 16 boxes there was breakage in more than 50%. One box had only two unbroken tiles. The good folks at Home Depot were very understanding and made it all good, but it can effect your schedule if not planned for in advance. Also it is important to understand these slate tiles are irregular in thickness that will result in a uneven surface unless you use a very thick thinset application. Some tiles are 1/4 inch, others 3/4. The uneven surface was ok for my application as it was being installed in a new construction wine room and we wanted an old world look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but not as pictured + breakage It's a good looking tile, although the colors are pretty far away from what's pictured. It's a lot darker with bluish grays and rusty reds. Installation was pretty easy except for the uneven thickness. Cuts well with a tile saw. I ordered 7 boxes and I had to mix & match them because of breakage. Ended up returning 3 boxes full of broken pieces. Had no problem returning these in-store, just make sure you keep your receipt. After sealing the colors really pop. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the results.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gorgeous -- BUT, 3/4 BROKEN! This is gorgeous tile -- love the gauged, "kit" aspect -- HOWEVER, we ordered 4 cases and 3 arrived broken -- or, rather, we could "assemble" equivalent of one case out of the four! We will be re-ordering more -- this time,7 cases to try to gain equivalent of 4-5 cases worth to put down. Fingers crossed! It should look wonderful in the studio for which it's planned, but, these are heavy boxes, not easily just taken back to HD...Working out some sort of delivery to store, this time, where we'll open boxex there, not have delivered to home. PAIN -- better look great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful tile I just picked up my tile today and haven't installed yet (for a small bathroom), but I am so impressed with the appearance of the tile, the beautiful variations in color, the speed of delivery and the customer service from Home Depot and the company that sources this tile. I had one delivery sent to my local store and that shipment had many broken tiles. Right away the staff called the tile supplier and had new tiles shipped out with a discount for my troubles. Less than one week later the tiles arrived all intact. They were nice enough to give me the spare tiles from the first shipment, plus an additional gift card for my troubles. Overall the staff was beyond accommodating, made sure the issues with broken tile were rectified, and went above and beyond to make sure I left happy. I'm really glad I ended up with all the extra tile because slate can be fragile and 'flake' off. Now I can pick the smoothest/strongest pieces and have more options in placing the different color tiles. Had I known, I would have ordered more to begin with. Overall, I'm a happy camper and cant wait to see the finished product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Looking Slate I bought this slate for a Fireplace surround and it worked well, looks good. The only issues I had were that the slate thickness was not consistent varying between 1/4 inch and 5/8ths. Also, of the 5 boxes I bought, an amount of slate equal to 1 box was broken when it arrived. 20% breakage seems a little high which is why the value is rated good. The stone itself has a nice look to it but be aware that there are a lot of black slate tiles included if you expect a more variegated look then you should buy more square footage just to make sure that the look is what you want.

We had it installed on covered porch and now a year later are having it install in our covered outdoor kitchen. It has held up well. and recommend the product. Beautiful when installed. We live in San Antonio, Texas area, so not subject to long deep freezes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handle like it's dynamite! This tile is absolutely gorgeous! There are all sorts of colors and patterns in it. I even found some with fossilized plants on them. Don't expect it all to be yellow and blue like the pics. There's red, green, white and purple too. And the box contains 4 different size tiles with all sorts of different thicknesses. They are extremely fragile! My buddy and i notched a large one for the door and when we set it in to make sure it was right, the opposite side crumbled into 4 pieces. That wasn't the only one. There were a few broken ones in the box. I had originally ordered 5 boxes. I went back and got 3 more and even some of those were broken. When you pick them up from the store, do NOT stack them on top of each other because each box weighs about 100 lbs! Even with all the negatives with this tile, the end result is unlike anything else! If you have the patience, i would suggest these!
