This is a beautiful floor and easy to install. Our only complaint is that they will not accept returns. The store we purchased it from advised us to order an extra box incase we ran out. We have a very small bathroom and did not use the extra box and were told it could not be returned. This is an expensive floor and we were disappointed that the unused box could not be credited to us on our purchase.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less

Comment:
We had this installed by our contractor 3 years ago in a heavily used kitchen. I have not experienced any flaking, scratching, or wearing noted in the other reviews. What I like most is the grout. It does not stain or hold dirt like grout for ceramic tile.<br /><br />The only damage so far, is that I dropped a knife, point first, and it did leave a white chip. Since our tile is very dark, I used a black Sharpie to fill in the small white spot.<br /><br />Overall, I have been very pleased with the product. It doesn't look quite like ceramic or stone, but I knew that before I purchased it. I purchased this because of the durability ratings and because I didn't want to deal with regular grout.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This is a beautiful flooring. Just don't live on this flooring. If anything drops on it, it will chip. Actually, nothing needs to drop on it; the floor chips. When that thin vinyl covering is gone, the white underneath shines through. We have it in a bathroom, kitchen and entryway. It is so beautiful, but I wish it was even a little bit durable.
