Slate Style Options

Slate is made from sand and other sediments that are compressed over time to form an elegant metamorphic rock. Higher quality slate contains more silica, which makes the tile less porous and more resistant to scratches. Lower quality slate has less silica, which makes it softer and less durable. Slate is available in a wide range of colors, from the more commonly seen grays to beautiful greens and purples. You can also choose a wide variety of sizes, different finishes, and grout pairings to further customize the appearance of your slate floor or backsplash.

Care & Maintenance

Quality slate is an extremely durable material that will provide value and beauty to your space for years with proper care. To maintain slate, regularly sweep or vacuum to remove abrasives, occasionally damp mop with an approved cleaner to remove grime, and make sure to reseal the tiles every few years to ensure they are protected against potential stains.
