Comment:
I had this professionally installed with grout over 8 years ago in my kitchen and laundry room. It is extremely fragile. I'd say about 75% of my tiles have some dent, scratch, or gouge in them. I have young kids and a dog and we spend a lot of time in our kitchen. My laundry room tiles look better as there is less traffic, although a nail from the subfloor pop-up right through one of them. It simply is not durable and looks terrible at this point. The grout lines are filthy - highly recommend you seal them if you want them to maintain a light color. Perhaps if you don't have a family and always wear slippers then this might be the floor for you.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This produce was recommended by a company that remodeled my kitchen but after learning this company is run by a crook I believe he knew it was garbage, anyways it looked good the first month but one day I noticed a dull area behind my chair, so after looking close I could see the high points of the fake stone texture were worn off and dull and looked dirty (I have a light color with tan dusting style) I could also see fine thin scratches like those on a cutting board that seem to collect dirt and I have no idea what caused them. I read that you have to put felt on chair leg so I have but ..come on.. this is not DURABLE! I have had cheap vinyl, pergo laminate etc for years without babying that looks better than this overpriced rubbish. I have a problem understanding how some people gave good reviews because the surface is VERY thin with an even thinner glossy coating so who doesnt get a stone in there sneaker or track in some sidewalk salt? Maybe they work for the company. My suggestion before you buy take one home and tape it to the floor under your chair
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
