Ceramic Tile: Ceramic slate

Reviewed by:
The Old House Web
With their unglazed textured surface, these ceramic tiles look like real slate, but are more durable. Shown here is Vermont in a combination of trail green, orchard green and barn red.

The tiles can be used inside and out, including on walkways, courtyards, patios, and porches, both covered and open. The high-fire porcelain stone tile is virtually impervious to moisture, so it shrugs off the freeze-thaw winter conditions that cause slate to crack.

The tiles come in a larger 18" x 18" size similar to natural slate, as well as in 12" x 12" units. Surface bullnose and bullnose corners complete the new Vermont series.
