Never a good idea to use slate tiles on a driveway

Recommended Posts

Slate is a natural stone and formed in layers.

In opinion is not strong enough to take on the load of ordinary vehicles.

This owner replaced the broken slate tiles recently. And again, has to replace them.

The most common materials used on driveways are homogeneous tiles or concrete slabs.

Location: Pebble Bay condo

Also not a good idea to use it for frequently used pathways.

The most common is the corners will flake & chip off easily due to the gradual buildup of layers.

In this bungalow home, the pieces that have to be replaced frequently are those where the car tires roll onto....

Also not a good idea to use slate tiles even on the walls of toilets. 

As slate is simply too porous.

Recently, I discovered that a public toilet used slate to line the walls of the toilet. However, the slate wall was heavily vanished. 

It looks shiny but the main purpose is to make it sort of waterproof! But really don’t like this idea at all.
