Nice tile, but takes a long time to install
 from North Carolina,  Jun 28, 2011

This was my first tile job and, in hindsight, it really insn't a beginner's product. Of the three boxes I bought, two were perfect, and one had eight out of ten sheets with blemishes. Although disappointing, it was easy enough to pop those tiles off the backing and replace the spaces with other tiles. I used 1/4" cement backerboard with grid lines, white mortar, and grey unsanded grout. The result is lovely, but it was so much work. The mortar seeps through the mesh, which all has to be dug out, tile by tile, prior to mortaring. The grey mortar was a good choice; it shows contrast with the white, but doesn't emphasize the occasional unevenness of grout lines. Having backerboard with inch lines helps a lot, but it is still very easy to get unevenness when joining two sheets. Cutting tiles with nibbling tool worked well. I tiled a very small bathroom. I lifted the toilet and tiled underneath which left the flange too short. I did call a plumber to reset the toilet. He used both a flange extender and a jumbo wax ring. All in all I'm pleased with the result, but the work and expense has been much more than I anticipated.
