Slate is quarried in large slabs from metamorphic rock and is typically found in green, gray, and black. However, it can also come in gold, purple and blue. Although Slate is chosen to cover floors due to its durability, it is also a very brittle natural stone. The rustic almost jagged, uneven surface of Slate is the reason many interior designers choose this natural stone as a floor covering in residential and business settings alike.

Vinegar and lemon juice can leave permanent stains in Slate. Sealing Slate and resealing Slate as needed is vitally important. Stone Care of Arizona, LLC uses a specialized impregnating sealant that provides maximum protection against the staining of natural stone and especially protects Slate.
At Stone Care of Arizona, LLC, we understand that Slate can only be polished if it has been properly honed until the surface is smooth. However, the most effective way to add a sheen to Slate is to apply a topcoat. A topcoat will not compromise the integrity of slate.
Slate is honed in only special instances. The rough jagged surface of Slate is indicative of its very nature. This is the reason honing of Slate is only performed when a smooth, uniformed surface is desired. We can provide proper consultation if honing is desired.
