Question: Is the tile smooth or textured?

Answer: The tile has a slight texture. On most patterns, it’s barely visible, especially from eye-level. The texture isn’t a part of any pattern. It’s very subtle and probably makes the tile a bit less slick. The texture is not deep enough to catch dust or dirt.

Question: Can the tile be installed over a previously tiled or vinyl floor?

Answer: Yes. the old floor must be clean, smooth and dry. No loose dirt of dust. Any cracks or holes must be repair. Not recommended on a cushioned surface.

Question: Can the vinyl peel & stick tile be installed on a cement surface?

Answer: The tile does well on smooth cement surfaces. As always, a clean, smooth and dry surface is necessary. Ground-in dirt is not really a big problem but any loose dust or dirt must be eliminated. You may want to consider a floor primer. If you’re going to use one, we recommend Henry’s Bond Enhancer.

Question: Should I use extra adhesive to make sure the tile sticks well?

Answer: NO! The glue on the tiles is super sticky and super strong. There is no need to add extra adhesive. In fact, it will void the warranty! Different adhesives are made with different chemicals which almost always make s them incompatible. There are some occasions where you may have a tile or 2 with a stubborn corner which doesn’t want to stay down. In that case, we recommend a product called Loctite. Only a small dot is necessary to stick down a stubborn corner.

Question: How do I get the sticky glue residue off my finger and off the surface of the tile after installation?

Answer: Acetone. It’s the ingredient in common nail polish remover so you may already have some in your house. A small amount on a paper towel or cotton ball will melt the glue instantly. Clean your hands and the tile with soap and water afterward and use acetone sparingly.

Question: What if my tiles are damaged during shipping?

Answer: Sure…it an happen. Tile is heavy and when it’s dropped, tiles can get damaged. It’s very important to report damage immediately (within 24 hours of receipt of goods). If the damage is not reported within 24 hours, our chance of getting restitution (in the form of a reimbursement) from the carrier is doubtful. If you are present at the time of delivery and you suspect any packages look like they may have been damaged, open, opened and then reclosed, you should indicate “apparent damage” on any documents you are asked to sign. Insist upon a report of “apparent damage.” If you report damage within 24 hours, we will replace damaged merchandise. After 24 hours of receipt of goods, we can not.

Question: Is the tile slippery when it gets wet?

Answer: Of course it is! Everything is slippery when it gets wet! We always tell people to think of this tile (no matter where you’re using it) like a kitchen floor. When you spill something on it, it will be slippery and you will ordinarily clean it up. The tile has a glossy finish and any spill is just going to sit on the surface of the tile and it will be slippery.

Question: Can the self-adhesive tile be installed over ceramic tile?

Answer: Although ceramic tile is not an ideal surface, we have had many, many customers do it. First, the surface must be smooth so all grout line must be filled in. Also, it’s best to sand and glossy surface off the ceramic. This helps the glue from the vinyl tile stick better.
