The Question

Do your slate tiles require sealing and are they suitable for indoor AND outdoor use?
 

The Answer

Hello Steph

It is recommended to seal all natural stone installed both indoors and out to protect it from staining and to aid the maintenance of the stone, this topic is discussed further in our Natural Stone Aftercare: Sealing and Maintaining post on our blog.

Brazilian natural riven slate is great for use outdoors due to its natural anti-slip properties, which is great for creating a seamless tiling surface spanning both in and outdoors. Depending on the base you are installing onto outside, you will either use the 10mm thick (min onto a solid concrete base) or the external pavers (20-30mm thick onto a type 1 mot base).

I hope this as well as the information in the link to the blog help you Steph but should you have any further questions, please feel free to give us a call on 01283 730388, we'll be happy to go through things with you.
