Happy holidays to everyone. I'll be changing my showers soon and was wondering if anyone has tried slate in or around their shower stalls. Right now we're have basic FRP but want to step it up a little bit but designer FRP & glassboard can run over $4 a square foot. I was thinking of using natural slate which is far less money and might not need grout, but I'm still worried about the salt eating through the stone. Any thoughts?


Thank you,


Joey LP

Thanks Luke.  Thinking I might to FRP on the inside and possible slate on the outside.  What kind of non-porous tile or stone are you using?  Any issues with grout?


Thanks again!

Seems like a bad idea to me.. non-porous and no cracks is going to save you money and tons of trouble. We have a lot of natural slate where I live and I've worked with it a bit. I think cracks would get you with the expand/contract of salt.
