Installing slate tile is a very specialized skill. Because it’s a natural stone, and since it’s cut in various sizes and shapes, it’s not uncommon to find slight fractures and fissures in the slate. Hamada craftsmen sound each and every tile to check for these defects.
We install the slate with veining, color (greens, blacks, purples) and percentage mixes all contemplated. The slate is sounded and patterned on the ground first before installation.
