Question: What type of stone floor tile is the most difficult to install?
Top Answer (31% of 41 votes): There is no significant difference.

Answer: Flagstone
Explanation: On the above list I believe that marble would be the toughest to install. A lot of marbles have veins running through the material and can cause breakage very easily upon installation. As well as slates or flagstone due to the difficulty of grouting these material as there is a lot of clefting.
