A Little Bit About Slate
Slate is an exceptional flooring material that comes in a variety of colors, from subdued and neutral to vibrant, and several different textures, from smooth to a cleft finish, which is a rough finish.
Slate is not impervious to damage.
Slate is a porous stone that needs to be properly cleaned and sealed after installation, as well as periodically thereafter. Although its tough composition makes it fade and scratch resistant, the appearance of slate can become diminished by chips or other damage, over-aggressive cleaning, harsh chemicals, and the build-up of inappropriate coatings. Elite Stone and Tile Care can resolve all of these problems.
