Slate is a fine-grained, foliated metamorphic rock that is created by the alteration of shale or mudstone by low-grade regional metamorphism. Slate is very popular for a wide variety of uses such as roofing and flooring because of its durability and attractive appearance. Slate Tiles are often used for interior and exterior flooring, stairs, walkways and wall cladding. Specialized sealants are required on Slate Tiles to improve durability and appearance, increase stain resistance, reduce efflorescence, and increase or reduce surface smoothness of your Slate floors.
