I love the tile. I live in San Diego and was planning to tile a large (500sf) second floor patio with this tile. Do you think it would be ok to use here? It is outside but there is no frost issue. Thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry on the MSI Multi Color Slate Tile. As long as the cutting is done correctly with a wet saw there should be no issue with cutting. Please refer to your contractor or installer for further information on the methods they will be using to do this. Good luck with your project!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but a little difficult to install. I've been working with this slate for the past 7 or 8 years. This is pretty good slate - especially considering the price. Most of the slate is 1/4" inch thick, but some of the pieces are thicker and some are thinner. This can make installation a challenge. When I'm installing a floor, I will go through all of the boxes that I've bought and separate the best pieces that are closest to the nominal 1/4" thickness. I will return any tiles that are crack or damaged. I either set aside the very thin and thick tiles for other projects (wall or ceiling installations) or I will return them to the store with the damaged pieces. Other people do this also because you will see tiles at the store wrapped in plastic straps. These were returned tiles. New tiles are always boxed. Also, each tile is not exactly 12" x 12". This can cause grout line variances. Not a huge issue, but sometimes I will cut the tiles down to 11.5" x 11.5" exactly so that the grout lines are perfect. It's easiest to do this with 10" tile saw to do this. That's going over the top but I thought I would pass on that tip. I like to apply a sealer when I'm done with the installation. This gives the tile a very nice sheen and also darkens the tiles just a bit. Also, try use a "dressing stone" to smooth the tops edges of the tile before you install the tiles. This makes it easier on the feet if your grout isn't flush with the top of the tile. Slate tile is a bit more difficult to install compared to ceramic, but I think that the effort is worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but tricky to install... I laid 400 sq. ft. of this tile in an older home. It really helps to mask the imperfections of older homes and uneven floors. However, the uneven surface and thickness makes it extremely difficult to grout and to lay. I am an amateur and this was my 2nd do-it-yourself tile project. If you are artistic and have a good eye for patterning, this tile is excellent and can provide a unique floor that will "wow" your guests... Since the first project using this tile, I have used it on 2 more occasions and will be using it to tile the kitchen in my 1895 farm house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice slate tile Installed 200 sf of slate on my outdoor front and back porch. Recommend using an 1/8th inch dark grout line since the tiles are not completely square. Plan to acid washing after grouting to get all the grout off of the layers on the surface of the slate. Sealed twice with a matte finish sealer.

We also used it as the backsplash for our Uba Tuba granite counter tops and the contrast and continuity that lends to our kitchen is very nice. So far it has held up well in all three installations. However, this low-priced grade of slate takes a lot of work and attention to purchase, select and install. If buying whole cartons (I think 10 per), buy 50% more than you need and just plan to return what you don't use. We found that at least 1/3 of the tiles in a carton were broken on delivery. If selecting individual tiles plan to spend a lot of time in the store picking through cartons to find enough unbroken tiles for your project. My local HD (Poulsbo, WA) was very good about helping me paw through the selection to find enough to do our entryway, and they were also very good about accepting the broken tiles delivered in whole cartons for the kitchen project. The tiles vary widely in depth, from 1/4" to 3/4" even on the same tile. You can see that from HD's photo of the nine-square mosaic - note the shadow between the upper- and center-right tiles. You will need to lay down the mastic thick under them and may need to tilt some tiles into the mastic to make them match their neighbors. Regardless, I have several tiles in our installation whose edges stick up 1/4" or more from their neighbors - it was unavoidable. Several tiles "flaked" - the top surface had a strata that easily popped away from the rest of the tile using a trowel. I found myself constantly looking for these as obviously I don't want a floor that gradually flakes away. I generally rejected these tiles but of the ones from which I simply popped off the flaky strata, the remaining surface has remained intact for the years we have had the tiles installed. I found myself gently tapping every tile with the handle of a screwdriver and listening for solid thuds. I quickly learned how to hear tiles with unstable top strata. The tiles are flattened on the bottom side but it is not always obvious which is which. I had a worker assist with installation and he didn't pay enough attention to this and installed some tiles upside down. After sealing, the whorl pattern from the machine used to surface them is now visible. Thankfully most of these are in places appearing under rugs or in corners. All of the above added more time to the installation and was frustrating - especially if I opened a carton only to find 7 or 8 of the 10 tiles broken. Being soft stone, the tiles cut very quickly using my $80 wet saw, much easier to cut than the porcelain tiles I have used in other projects. The hassle of the above now history, five years later our floor is still beautiful. My wife loves the variable colors and gradations and the look of the installation lends a very rustic look to our house in the country. There is no evidence of wear. My 3-star rating is due to the poor packaging that resulted in so many broken tiles and what I perceive as poor quality control resulting in the large variability in tile height plus the relatively large number of tiles with pop-off upper strata - not the quality and durability of the installed product. I used a solvent-based sealer on the floor. Slate is so porous it took three coats to get them sealed. If I had it to do over again I would probably use a water-based sealer instead, for the convenience if nothing else.
