Maintenance-Free Tile Flooring Alternative
By using the latest in high-definition digital printing during the production process a ‘no maintenance’ alternative to natural products such as timber, marble, travertine, stone and now slate has been achieved.
Disadvantages of Using Real Slate
Slate is also a heavier option than most flooring, and a reinforced sub-floor may be necessary. Finding a tiler who is willing to lay natural slate could also prove difficult or add extra expense to your project.
So if you want the look and feel of slate flooring, without the hassle and maintenance required, then digitally printed slate-look tiles are your best option.
