Q:Does the color darken, after sealing it? It seems the12 x 12 tile I received, is very light in comparison. I understand natural stone and its slight variances, this is way beyond that.
by|Sep 7, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Sealing a gray marble tile should not significantly darken its color, although there may be slight variations due to the natural stone's characteristics. If you're experiencing a significant and unexpected color change, it could be due to specific marble characteristics, or the sealer used. However, we always recommend that it is a best practice to check with a professional installer when seeking personalized guidance on the sustainability of materials in a specific application.

          not square
          The stone looked nice, but the tiles weren't square in any direction (no right angles). Like one of the other reviewers, I found them to be frequently 1/8th of an inch off. Using spacers was impossible because they kept getting out of alignment. Manually aligning them made uneven grout lines (you can see that in LadyDoItYourselfer's photos). Unusable for less than 1/4 inch grout lines. My installer called it total garbage (I had him pull it up and then used a different tile).

            Beautiful natural stone, plan on slight variations
            Beautiful natural stone, plan on slight variations when installing. This was my first time working with natural stone as opposed to porcelain or ceramic tiles. I built a small custom hearth pad for my wood stove with it. On the positive side, there is unlimited pattern variation and different shading to work with. Tones range from dark grey to lighter grey with a subtle metallic sheen at different angles of view. It was fun (yet time consuming) to see which way each tile looked its best. The appearance is really as good as I had hoped for. Negative aspects are a result of the slicing and milling of the stone itself. Quite a few tiles were out of square, requiring some micro adjustments with the tile saw. I also went with a wider grout line (1/4") which I recommend to help hide some of the flaws. The top of the tile is very smooth and consistent, however a few tiles were not usable because you could see repeating circular saw marks from milling process. On the back side of the tile things get a little rougher, plan on addressing random high/low spots by lightly grinding the ridges or back buttering with mortar before you lay it down. Finally, I HIGHLY recommend sealing the tile beforehand. I used 2 coats of 511 Impregnator Sealer (only on the top side!) to avoid problems with staining that other reviewers noted. Mortar was easily wiped away, even the water from the wet saw would bead right off. I plan on sealing it one more time after I apply the grout.

              This floor tile was the best purchase I had ever made! I had a few minor problems with water stains before I got a chance to seal it with the 511 impregnator sealer. I put on four coats of the sealer and three coats of floor wax. What I have in return is pure beauty! Please look at the photos I have attached and I am sure you will agree!

                I am a Do It Yourselfer and I remodeled our master bathroom for the Mrs. last month. We ordered this Ostrich Gray Quartize tile for the floor. Installed tile with center mosaic and liked the natural variations that the stone tile shows off we decided to buy more of this same tile for another bathroom in our home. Received order delivery with no broken pieces (it was packaged well). The Mrs. posted finished pictures on her Facebook page and received 59 likes in a few hours. Would highly recommend to any contractor or homeowner, A-1+. Very happy customer.

                If you love grey and stone, you will love this tile. It cuts easily with very little chipping, and each tile has a unique pattern that still flows nicely with the others (although expect to play with the tile a bit to get best juxtaposition of patterns). Like the photo sample shows, every tile has a silver sheen to it in some area of the tile, and almost all have a range of greys that flow across the tile. The silver sheen brightens the tile and draws your eye without being overly dramatic or distracting. Expect that there will be a little variation in thickness of the tile as it is a natural stone. The only problem we had was when we needed to order a few additional cases (we miscalculated the quantity we needed). The tile that arrived was not at all like the original 10 cases we received (they were pock-marked and all had a lot of gold in them, unlike the original tile). We returned them and re-ordered another two cases, hoping that the previous cases were sent by mistake (instead of being some "acceptable" variation in the tile). We were relieved to see the new cases that came matched the original cases in color and texture. Whew!

                Warning. Will shows all stains....even when sealed. I was expecting a darker, more stain resistant surface, we’ll forget that. I think the only solution is to cover it, or removal, or lamination(joking).

                  This tile will STAIN over things like water.
                  I love the appearance of this tile, but water WILL STAIN this tile. Maybe it's not 100% pure water, but 90% pure water, will near immediately stain this tile, even if it's sealed with 3 coats of sealant. Those little drops you get on the floor when you're loading the dishwasher or washing your hands will be the cause of those ridiculous, hideous, and prominent stains. I spent a few thousand dollars on this tile, and it's worthless. See picture.

                    Not as dark as in the pictures
                    The tile itself is much lighter than pictured. That said it does have some really neat colors when wet. Enhancer takes it a little darker than I was hoping but it is an interesting tile. See pictures for before and after 511 enhancer sealer.

                    Gorgeous!
                    This tile is amazing. There are 3 or so distinct patterns and it is sparkly while remaining neutral. I had my order shipped for free to the nearest store and picked it up. Other than each box weighing 70lbs and being hard to carry, it was quick and easy. No tile was broken, but there were about 10 tiles out of 150 that were not usable. Mainly because they were not scored on one side or had a natural flaw. I used a charcoal grout and it was very tonal. I would recommend this tile to anybody looking for natural stone.
