Installing Black Slate Tile
Black slate tile has a style that is unique. It can give a room an elegant style and lasts a long time. Black slate tiles are installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms. It comes in porcelain, ceramic, or natural tile stones.
Measuring the Room and Arranging the Tiles
Measure the room and find its center point. Mark the center and snap a chalk line to keep the measurements. Next, arrange the tiles in the desired pattern. Then, cut the tiles using a wet saw.
Installing the Tiles
Black slate tiles are easy to install. Set the tiles in the thin-set using a notched trowel. The trowel creates lines in the thin-set that allow the tiles to be pushed into it with no oozing. As the black slate tiles are laid, make sure a steady spacing pattern is maintained. Allow the surface to cure for 24 hours. A grout released liquid can be applied over the tiles. Keep the grout off of the slate’s edges.
