Answers

Thank you for your interest in a Montauk Black 12 in. x 24 in. Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile. It is recommended to Install over existing concrete or asphalt as long as it is in reasonably good shape. To ensure an adequate foundation for the brick, the existing concrete slab or asphalt should be inspected and repaired as necessary. Also, the capability of slate stone tiles to withstand heavy loads make them the first choice of all homeowners.

Once sealed, does it have to be resealed later? And does the seal work well to prevent stains etc.

Asked by Brandy September 16, 2020
1
Answer

Probably best to post that question on the sealer you want to use as sealers will be different. In my experience, sealers tend to suggest a 'redo' at regular intervals (like every few years). The sealer I used does a good job of preventing stains, but I did find out that it does not like rubbing alcohol, which will leave a white spot if left on the surface for very long.

I did not seal orior to grouting abd there is ALOT of haze on my tiles. I am going to seal after i get the haze off

Asked by Supriya September 8, 2020

Answers

It's fine to grout first. It's best to wipe the grout off the tile as soon as you have it in place (to get the bulk as it will start getting hard). With most gone, what's left should just wipe up with a damp cloth after the grout is dry. If you left a lot of grout on the tile it may take some work to wipe it down, but I wouldn't use anything more abrasive than a cloth towel. Just keep wiping/scrubbing until the excess is gone. Let the grout dry completely (like overnight) then apply the sealer as directed. The sealer I used went on in two coats and is a 'wet look' which produces a very nice finish on this tile.

I have this slate tile in my bathroom and love it! I’m not sure about the installation process but none of mine has chipped I would suggest putting a sealant over it as my bathroom chair has made some marks! Doesn’t get too cold in winter and it is not slippery

Is there a bullnose or slate corner piece that matches this? Thanks

I could not find anything close. I purchased a wet polisher/grinder with a round-over bit and a set of polishing pads. That allowed me to round it over and polish out the scratch marks.

Bathroom project just completed with this tile. Am very pleased with it. The color is beautiful and love the texture of real slate! Because it is natural slate it is not always perfectly even like ceramic tile, so takes some time and patience to put in and make sure is level. Had the tile shipped to my home and that worked great. Was packed well and no tiles were broken or damaged.

wrong color tile shipped

I purchased 4 pallets, 320 sqft, of the Montauk Blue Ashlar Pattern Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile kits and had them delivered to the store. I then brought one of the 80 sqft boxes home and although the tile appears to be of good quality, it is no where near the color or variation shown on the pictures online. It is a very consistent green/brown/gray slate with 0 variation between tiles. I tried wetting down the tile but that only brought out more of the warm green color in my opinion. The boxes the tile came in were also simple brown unbranded cardboard boxes so there was no way to tell if home depot accidentally shipped the wrong tile or the picture online is just wrong. Unfortunately i had to return the full lot, which is unfortunate because we really loved the tile shown in the images.

Beautiful slate tiles but they vary in size and thickness
Quality :

The tiles were a little more greenish blue that we were expecting and vary in thickness. We made sure that the subfloor was level...but still had to float some tiles to make the floor even. Also, not all tiles were perfectly rectangular so we ended up trimming some of them to keep the grout lines straight. But for the low cost of this tile, you should expect them to not be perfect. So, this is definitely not a beginner's tiling project. If you are willing to futz with it, you will have a beautiful (and fairly cheap!) floor. Otherwise, you may end up with an uneven floor/catching your feet on uneven tiles. For the record, the tiles were expertly delivered - not a single broken tile in the 13 boxes we ordered!

These slate tiles are absolutely stunning. If you are like me and appreciate natural beauty, these are a great choice at a great price point. A little more costly than the cheaper porcelain tiles but they are thick, solid, and probably can take a lot of abuse. What I love the most is each individual tile has a different textured pattern. If you’re lucky, some pieces have a gold glitter-like residue from a secondary stone (pyrite?). However, we were only gifted with 3 tiles with these special attributes. The tiles pictured below have a protective seal on top to give it a wet look. You can change the type of shine depending on preference. Easy to clean and supprisingly masks pet hair better than my previous flooring. Can’t wait to install these tiles in my bathrooms.

From the moment I saw photos of Montauk Blue Slate, I knew I had to have it in my bathroom and laundry room remodel. It really is more of a blue/grey/green depending on the light and the variation of each tile but I love that it is subtle and looks amazing with my other items. I ended up doing both a herringbone and a subway pattern with a lighter grey grout (called Dove Grey) and love the texture and character of this product. Even my contractor was impressed with it and said it was super easy to work with and cut like "butter" and didn't have a ton of waste. And he had to make A LOT of cuts with the herringbone pattern. He did seal the slate once before he grouted it and then again after grouting. He said that's because when grout gets on the unsealed slate, it's harder to get off if you haven't sealed it, so there's a little tip for you. He ended up using a product called Wet Look Sealer in glossy but it's really not over the top glossy. He applied it with a roller. Everything was complete a couple days ago so my photos are showing it brand spanking new. I ordered this product online because NO Home Depot in my region carried it in stock. They only ever had the black. It was so frustrating because I couldn't see this product before ordering and there was no option for a sample. I ended up ordering one box with the thought that I could return it if I didn't like it. Fortunately I did so I ordered the rest. I had it delivered to my local store and I picked it up myself. It is heavy! I would definitely recommend this product. I think it's beautiful and goes in virtually any style home.

This tile is absolutely beautiful in person and is more like a grayish blue than black. It’s easy to install. We used a charcoal grout from powertec and it looks really nice. I was a little concerned about the tiles coming off as a “commercial space” look but our tile guy did and excellent job. One thing to note is that you need to seal this tile!

Excellent floor product. Use specialized mortar for large stone tile. It is also recommended to pre-arrange the tile and sort them in the desired positions, mark and keep notes as they are a natural product where some areas may be uneven. Due to their size and weight, handling is not very easy and once they are carefully lowered in place, immediately slide and push until the grout distance is correct - use spacers (if possible), then set lightly with rubber mallet - that's it. Remove the haze per instructions after applying the grout material and use a sealer when everything is complete. The result is worth the effort!
