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

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).
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

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.
