Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 23, 2009
Online building materials leader BuildDirect has recently launched high-quality French pattern slate tile that offers homeowners and commercial builders an eye-catching, and long-lasting choice in natural stone tile.
"Slate tile of this level of quality is a real asset to any property," says Robert Banks, Co-Founder of BuildDirect. "It's durable, it's long-lasting, and the earthy color range of slate tile looks great almost anywhere."
BuildDirect offers six brand new selections of Cabot slate tile which can be installed indoors as well as some outdoor locations. The offering is further expanded by a choice in large or 'mini' pattern dimensions in a new 'French pattern' layout style.
French pattern tile has been a common style offering connected with travertine and marble tile. But, it is a relatively new format for slate that BuildDirect is proud to be able to extend to homeowners and builders alike. Rob Banks explains.
"French pattern means the use tiles of varying sizes in an interlocking layout," says Banks. "We're now able to offer our customers a French pattern style in two sizing choices for slate tile. This allows them the ruggedly beautiful and naturally slip-resistant advantages of slate, along with the stately effects of French pattern more commonly associated with marble. It's an exciting opportunity to expand the choices in quality natural stone surfaces to tile consumers."
BuildDirect offers French Pattern slate tile has launched Cabot slate tile in pallet quantities (358.92 sq.ft.), shipping from multiple locations in the US, including both the Eastern and Western U.S coasts.
