Avente Tile Talk: Installing a slate tile floor

Tile Talk

For the present project that we are working on Vermont slate tile was chosen for the mudroom entry way as well as the half bathroom that is attached to it. Because slate is a natural stone product it is not as strong as certain other tiles, Schluter said that we needed to add another layer of plywood before we proceeded and so a new layer of 3/8" plywood was added to the 3/4" layer. Slate is a natural stone and you have to seal it before you grout. Tuesday, August 28, 2012.

I live on a hill farm, I’m surrounded by stone, copious rocky amounts of it, and a little splotch of discolour here or there really isn’t going to ruin my life! As an investigative stone scientist I have to look into these issues on a near-daily basis.
