"I have lifted all the tile that have been laid. I don't mind an uneven surface but the fact that a an edge can vary by up to 5-6mm across a single tile means that the floor will inevitably have raised edges that will catch your toes or heels of shoes. Maybe if I spent a lot longer finding the perfect tile for a particular spot and packed it out with more adhesive, it may have turned out better but i doubt it. As it was i had to continually lift tiles that had already been placed to find a better match, which resulted in a few breakages. Before starting I sorted the tiles into piles of similar thicknesses but this wasn't enough. If you can find someone who has successfully laid a similar tile and are pleased with the result and they are willing to do it again, go for it. If not, I'd go for something calibrated. This isn't my first time tiling and previous work looks great, maybe this was a step too far. I now have to pay to level floor again and write of the cost of the tiles! An expensive mistake."
"Purchased these tiles for the ensuite bathroom. Sadly my builder said these would not be suitable as there was too much movement in the floor and they would break. So, I have spoken with the shop, I have up to six months to return them which is brilliant. There was one tile broken, but they look to be excellent tiles and very good value for money. In a kitchen they would be invaluable."
"As other reviews say these are uneven in nature and hard to keep pristine I had to lay and grout these on an already uneven floor and it was very time consuming to get anywhere near even. Cleaning off the grout (grey grout not recommended, try charcoal or darker) was a nightmare. Tough job for a novice to get a good fininsh"
"Paid a little more for these slates than an equivalent at Topps tiles and I am very pleased with the result. Although they are varying thicknesses they are no where near as varied as others I looked at. The colour is nice and even and the surface finish and blemishes add to the natural look. It was my first time laying tiles and was told by a pro that I had selected a baptism of fire! But they have gone down well. As said in other reviews select the tiles well and start with the thick ones as you can then make up the bed on the thinner ones. A tile saw is a must for speed and ease of cutting both straights and curves. I hired a big one from a hire shop."
