Hi! Our Crag Hexagon Black is not hard to keep clean and like all of our products, is rather easy to maintain. To clean this tile, you can use a stone tile cleaner.

Hi! Our Crag Square Multi Grey features a mix of earth tone colors including slate grey/blue. We recommend purchasing a sample of this product to determine if it suits your design preferences. A sample can be purchased directly from the product page by choosing the “Add Sample To Cart” option. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

why are the individual tile heights so uneven?

Asked by Mark September 27, 2020

Answer

Hi! For our Crag Hexagon Black, the variation in surface height and texture are expected authentic features of the natural stone this item is made from. Our Liverpool Hex Dark Grey offers the look of natural stone and has less variation in thickness, in a durable and easy-to-maintain ceramic material which may be a good alternative for you. It can be found here, https://thd.co/36gkpL0. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Asked by Dale April 7, 2020

Hi, Dale! Finishing trim is not necessary for this product as the product is made from natural stone and has a natural appearance on the face and edges. If you prefer, you may use a Schluter trim to finish the edge. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Can a toilet be mounted on top this tile with the height variation between pieces?

Asked by Tony February 28, 2020
3
Answers

Hi, Tony! Our Crag Hexagon Black has been installed by many customers as a bathroom floor. The potential minor variations in chip height should not prevent you from mounting a toilet on top of this tile. We recommend dry laying your sheets and ensuring your surface is reasonably level prior to installation just to be safe. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

I installed this tile as a shower floor. The slate chips into thin full squares & small pieces. How do I stop the chips?

Asked by TonyNY February 27, 2020
1
Answer

Hi! Our Crag Quad Sunset Slate is made from natural stone and should be sealed prior to grouting, then again after installation in order to preserve the look and make the tile water resistant. Chipping may be an indication that your tile is absorbing water. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Really attractive tiles. Cut with an electric tile cutter - very little waste even with more intricate cuts. Definitely would recommend. Would also suggest using a “wet look” sealer (but not shiny) to really accentuate the colors.

Many tiles came broken and my installer had a really hard time cutting these tiles. They split very easily when cutting. Would not recommend and wish I would have picked a different tile. Our project took twice as long due to the bad quality of this tile.
by HomeDG
This tile is made from numerous small pieces of rectangle slate. It is real slate, so it has a beautiful texture, color and feel. Each tile is glued to the base, so it can be laid as one piece. This eases installation, well, it's suppose to ease installation. The problem arises from this being made of real slate. Real slate is a layered material, so it has a tendency to flake off. When this happens, the tile falls out of the base and then it must be placed back when set. This is why I put an average rating for ease of installation. This tile does look great - see my photos. Slate is also very durable when installed. I've laid slate tile in the hallway of one of my homes and the natural colors and texture give it a very earthy feel. I am a big fan of the look of slate and this herringbone slate tile is awesome. I highly recommend it.
by Autobroker
I like the idea and the looks of these tiles but I'm not to sure how easy they will be to work with. Each case contains five mesh backed tiles of small rectangular pieces in an herringbone configuration. Several of the small slate pieces have come off of the backing. The directions said the best thing to do is try to keep the grout level fairly even so putting all the pieces back where they came from might take some time. These tiles are recommended for indoor use. They would look stunning as a wall accent or backsplash.

Hi! We’re glad you loved the look of our Crag Herringbone Sunset Slate. We do want to clarify for your and future customers that if necessary, individual chips can easily be removed from the mesh backing and set to ensure spacing consistency. If you have any other questions or concerns please contact us at 1-800-963-7652.

The Merola Tile Crag Herringbone Sunset Slate Natural Stone Mosaic Tile is a beautiful blend of natural earth tones. I would suggest that the grey seems a little more dominant to my eye, but the brown stones also would tie in any creams, browns, or woods in the furnished area. The tile has a low sheen and is rather rustic in appearance. Notice in the close up pictures that the surface is not level, nor cut smooth. I think it adds to the natural look of the tile, though some may feel it's application would be limited. It would make a beautiful backsplash. However, I originally thought about tiling a basement laundry area. With the small size of the mosaics, I decided that the area was too large, even though it would make a lovely floor - perfect for an entryway! Instead, I am making tile top tables. The tables will have more visual interest than a metal top and I can enjoy a close look at the tiles. Due to the small size of the table top, the use of a mosaic tile will be an appropriate fit and will give me more practice at tiling before I take on a whole floor. ;-)

I wanted to love this tile. I do love the look of it, it actually looks much better in person than on the website. The colors are great and the sheen and variation are very nice also. The quality of the sheets of tile, however, are not nearly as good. First off, several of the tile sheets were adhered to each other causing damage when separating from each other. Also, the layout of the individual tiles on the sheets was far from uniform. The grout spacing between the individual pieces ranged from narrow to wide and the alignment was off also. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this tile unless you meticulously examine each sheet and sort out the bad stock. If you can sort through to get the good ones, the tile is very attractive.

Hi! We take great care to ensure our products arrive in perfect, brand-new condition and appreciate you sharing your feedback with us. We apologize for the issues you experienced with your order. Although we constantly strive to ensure our content represents our products accurately, the Crag collection is crafted from natural stone and the color may vary between production runs. We do want to note that if necessary, individual chips can easily be removed from the mesh backing and set to ensure spacing consistency. We stand by the quality of our tiles and we’d love the opportunity to address your issue, please give us a call at 1-800-963-7652 if you’d like to discuss this further.

This is a natural slate product and the color variations are beautiful but the size of each individual tile varies in height so grouting will be difficult. There is no sheen on these, but a good sealer will bring out more color. They will need a border tile to make a finished look as there is no way to make a straight edge. If natural rock in a herringbone pattern is what you are looking for, then these are a nice choice.

We used this tile for our shower floor. We love the texture and color of the slate. As DIYers, we did have a little trouble getting all the grout cleaned up from the textured surface of the tiles, but the huge bonus of the texture is the added grip in the shower. We love it! We're very happy we went with this for our shower. The hex size is perfect - it was much easier to install than a one inch hex we'd done in a previous house. And the color, texture, and shape are so classy. We've been using this shower for several months now and are still very happy with it.

Our installer had no trouble installing this tile in our shower floor. We're thrilled with how it turned out and love how the irregular surface looks and the anti-slip properties it provides. Slate is a natural stone; expecting it to be perfectly smooth and identical defeats the purpose of using natural stone! We've had this installed for just over a year now and have had zero issues with any chipping or flaking of the slate. We used "511 Impregnator Sealer" on all the slate and grout, which seals it, deepens the color of the slate, and makes both easier to clean. We already have plans to use this same tile on another project.
