Comment:
I installed this product myself with grout about 7 years ago. It has held up very well and still looks good in our kitchen. We have not experienced any difficulty cleaning these tiles, as others have reported. Requires mild dish soap and water only. We use scotchbrite pads on the grout.<br /><br />There are cuts in several places, but these were due to dropping heavy items or kitchen knives. Most flooring can sustain damage in these instances, so hard to complain too much.<br /><br />More recent complaints make me wonder if product quality has deteriorated or if others are simply harder on their floors than us(hard to believe as our our kitchen is a primary traffic route, we cook a lot and have raised two children on our floor).

Comment:
I had my DuraCeramic installed with grout by a professional. Dents and scratches easily and I even had some tiles replaced - which I would not do again. It is very hard to get clean - you have to scrub the floor by hand.

Comment:
I had this product professionally installed. Looks like stone, feels great on the feet. I had the 16x16 tiles butted up to each other with no grout lines. Everyone thought it was real stone not vinyl. 10 years later my Duraceramic still looks as great the day it was installed.<br />Would I install it again? Yes with NO regrets.
