Stone: Marble, granite, slate, onyx, and more...
This particular product is known to be available in different sizes such as 24” x 24” down to fractional assortments. Here are a couple of things to watch out for:
- Be prepared to invest in a true stone professional to perform the installation.
- The American National Standards Institute specifies that a mortar bed be at least ¾” deep, which means that your new ½” tile plus ¾” (or more) mortar bed is going to raise the floor up at least 1 ¼” to 2” on average.
- Natural stone tiles need to be sealed after installation. Commonly, a penetrating sealer, which literally penetrates the surface and fills the pores of the stone, is used, and more than one coat is highly recommended. Penetrating sealers can be purchased from us or home stores.
