Product Overview

Add lasting elegance to your home with this MSI Natural Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile. Crafted from high-quality slate, its elegant shades of blue and gray complement a wide range of decors. Because it's made for indoor commercial and residential use, the tile is perfect for kitchen and bathroom walls and floors. It has water absorption of more than 0.5% but less than 3%. This tile is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified and GREENGUARD Children and Schools Certified. Note: Inspect all tiles before installation. Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade and finish. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes when installing. Natural stones may be characterized by dry seams and pits that are often filled. The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer.

Do I need to use a wet saw?

Asked by Juiceman March 26, 2021
5
Answers

yes use a wet saw. Be aware these have an uneven thickness and will require you to build up mortar in certain areas. Lay each tile on the surface before applying the mortar to find where it may be uneven. You may get some that set lower or higher than the adjacent piece if you are not careful.

Product pictures inaccurate
One star only because the product images are not representative of the actual color. The stone itself is nice just like all the reviews say. I was concerned about color so I ordered two pallets of the Montauk Blue Ashlar pattern, hoping the blue would look like the images provided. In reality, Montauk Blue is actually gray. I will be heading to a local MSI retailer to get Montauk Black Ashlar for my mud room. In the picture, the stone that looks blue is actually the "black" stone, the gray is the "blue" stone.

Tiles were gorgeous, no broken tiles in any of the boxes. Beautiful, natural variation in the coloring. We cut these tiles into 4x12 pieces to do a herringbone pattern in our entryway.

Monauk Blue color is WAY OFF
The color shown on the website (varied dark blue/green gray) is not the color of tile that I received. I ordered a sample and it is a flat gray with no color variation. If you are considering it, definitely get a $5 sample first.

We are installing this Montauk Blue in the lower level of our home.
So we decided to pull the trigger and order the montauk blue slate for our home in Alaska without ever seeing it in person and we were not disappointed. The color is a blue/green/grey and it is gorgeous with stone enhancer applied. These pictures are prior to grout being applied. Our contactor says the stone is easy to cut, but it is not perfectly square.

Love these floors. The black has a little more blue/grey/green tones swirled through some of the stones. I debated getting the blue colored ones and I am glad I didn’t these were perfect. We used delorian grey grout.

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. Install is a little tricky where edges are uneven (which also makes for trickier cleaning), but it looks beautiful.
