Adhering slate tiles on a slanted ceiling
Asked by... Bob Bold from Leeds

The Question

Is it possible to use real slate tiles on a slanted ceiling. If so what adhesive would you recommend. thanks

 

The Answer

We would not advise fixing tiles to a slanted ceiling with a tile adhesive, as the vibration from the building could cause the slate tiles to lose their bond and fall off. Buildings do have small vibrations which occur as part of everyday living, this is normal. We would suggest a mechanical way as the best and safest method of fixing on this occasion.
