Whether you are ready to plan out your next flooring project or just daydreaming about an upgrade to your home, it is time to put slate tile on your radar. Slate is a natural stone formed through metamorphic processes that can provide a tremendous rustic or country feel to any home.

Appearance

Slate usually appears in various shades of gray, and it commonly has beautiful markings of purple, green, cyan or red. Because it is natural, each tile possesses a unique gradient that differentiates it from all others.

But the customization for your Carmel home doesn’t stop there. You also have choices in terms of pattern (square, hexagon, etc.) and grout color (light or dark) to make sure it is a perfect aesthetic fit in your home.

Durability

Perhaps the biggest benefit of slate is its durability. One of the strongest natural flooring materials, it is common as both an interior and exterior flooring option in Carmel, Fishers, Zionsville, McCordsville, Westfield. With that in mind, it is no surprise that it is highly is resistant to scratches, chips, dents, breaks and cracks.

It’s durability also means that it requires far less maintenance than wood, linoleum and stone to look good for longer. And on the rare occasion that a tile does crack (which can occur if an even harder material is dropped on a tile), the broken tile can be individually replaced. While these tiles are known for their toughness, if you notice a crack in one be sure to give the experts at Floor Coverings International of Carmel a call.

Pricing

Because slate is of such high quality, it tends to be one of the more expensive flooring options. However, it’s important to consider value in addition to price. Installing slate is a sure-fire way to automatically increase the value of your home, and it will not have to be replaced for years to come.
