Oyster Slate Split Face Mosaic Tile is rated

I spent a fortune on these tiles and hired a very experienced fitter to install them....the results are truly terrible....There are big gaps everywhere, 5, 6, 7mm, more in a few cases....the tiler has tried to fill the gaps with grout but it still looks really bad.....I requested a refund from topps only to be told that by fitting their tiles it indicates acceptance of their quality and a refund is not possible....utter tosh....these are the worst tiles I've come across ...do yourself a favour either don't bother with slate or find a different supplier...I now have the job of pulling all these expensive tiles down and taking them to the dump....not a happy bunny

These tiles are wonderful but can be stressful to fit
We really liked the colour of these tiles, nice neutral and warm tones yet so much character. We'd read some of the previous reviews below and were put off by one of the comments which mentioned they were a nightmare to fit due to the varying level of tile thickness. We tried to look for similar tiles in other shops but couldn't find anything like these and we really liked these so we ended up getting them. While I would agree and say the tiles do differ in thickness, once up on the wall they look absolutely stunning. If you have the time to lay them all out on the floor and meticulously match them up (which is what I had to do) so the varying levels of thickness are less noticeable then I would recommend getting these. I would also recommend getting an exceptionally good tiler who will work with these tiles in the best possible way to create minimum wastage. I gave 4/5 for quality because you do need to be very careful with them as they are natural stone and chip very easily when getting them in and out of the box. However once on the wall they are fine as nobody will be touching them. Very happy with the end result.
