Beside this, what is the best paint to use on slate?
Paint. Exterior-grade, water-based latex paint that is made for masonry and stone materials is a durable choice for exterior slate. Oil-based paint has similar brittle and water-blocking qualities as oil-based primer, which makes it a less-durable choice for painting exterior slate.
Additionally, can you change the color of slate tile? Though available in various colors, patterns, textures and sizes, the cost associated with swapping out slate tile if you want to change colors is high compared with staining the tile itself. Using a two-phase approach to changing the color of slate tile will help you achieve the look you want.
Thereof, how do you cover slate floors?
How to Cover Slate Floors
- Pry the trim off the walls around the edge of the slate floor, using your pry bar and hammer.
- Lay plastic underlayment over the surface of the slate in slightly overlapping courses.
- Link your first two floorboards to each other, snapping them together at the ends.
Can you lighten slate floors?
