Comment:
This flooring does not belong in a house people actually live in. Was told this would take a lot of wear. Not even close to being true. Surface pulls away and it dents very easily.

More than six months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We have had this floor down for a year now. We experienced grout cracking after about 5 mos. Had the floor re-grouted by intaller. Looked good, but after 6 mos we started seeing cracking again. We have a very large area covered with this floor(900+ SF) The finish is a semi matte finish in which dirt sticks. I use only the Once and Done to clean it, but I still have to get on my knees and scrub the tough dirt spots.You need to be very careful not to drop anything sharp on it. It will dent/cut. It gives my kitchen/laundry room/foyer a great look, but with the issues that we have had I will not reccomend this product.

Pros
Looks Ok To Begin With
Cons
Just A Photo Of Stone
Best Uses
Comment:
I put this stuff in my kitchen. It looks great to start - but don't dare drop anything on it. The stone look is just a very thin layer of plastic sheet that is a photo. If you drop stuff on it, the photo sheet will tear -leaving the white underneath showing - looks horrible. For example - a saucepan lid fell off my counter - I have a gouged white spot that looks terrible in the middle of all this textured natural-looking stone. If you have children or pets, forget it.
