Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Experiencedweekender Time saver
This product is definitely a time saver, since you can begin to lay tile on it as soon as you finish adhering it. What I found was...1- you have to make sure the adhesive primer has tacked properly (30-45 minutes) before installing the mat. 2- your subfloor has to be PERFECTLY LEVEL- any imperfections will show through this mat (no matter how minor). 3- it still takes a little time to install this properly. 4- it is difficult to measure accurately, because it is tightly rolled for sale. Plan on trimming while installing. All in all- a good time saver, makes a weekend project instead of a weeklong project.

This is the first time we have used this product and found it very easy to use. We had to do a bit of adjusting here and there but other than that it worked great. Suggest you work in small pieces even if one piece will cover your whole area. Once you cover your sub-flooring with the preparation glue & peel the paper off the Easymat & start to apply it to the floor it is like doing laminate you are NOT going to more it to do any adjustments. So small pieces are easier to manage. Also, make sure you use all the preparation glue, you want a tight bond between the sub-flooring & the Easymat. We rented a weighted roller & made sure everything was rolled down nicely. This was less expensive that wonder board, lighter, less labor & less time consuming. Would use it again & would recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by JackinNH Great Concept, Good Product for flat surfaces
When I saw this product I thought this will be perfect for a repair i need to make on a shower curb. The product did work for what I wanted but not as easier and I expected. My biggest issue with the product was the adhesive was not very strong. I laid it down on the top of the curb and I used the primer that came with it. Even following the instructions it didn't stick very well. I then bent it over the edge to cover the side and that wouldn't stick for more than a second or so. So I ended up having to tack it into place which I was trying to avoid.
Now with that said, other then not sticky enough, it is an amazing product. I had to fight the curl from the roll a little but once I had it down, it was a dream to tile over. If i was working on a flat horizontal surface, I would use this product everytime.

We bought this to tile our bathroom floor. It did not stick well at all. It would be way better if it were sold in flat sheets. Since it is somewhat stiff and comes in rolls it does not want to flatten out very well so it stuck for about a minute before popping up and trying to roll up again. We ended up screwing the edges into the wood subfloor, which worked well and kept it flat. Only time will tell how the tile and grout lines react.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Tiggertoy One Year on and no cracks
I installed the same tiles over hardibacker in the bathroom and easymat in the kitchen. Nothing is going to feel more solid than installing over hardibacker. But we needed to complete the kitchen in a hurry so tried Easymat. I figure that I will have something on 3 sides of the room holding everything down. The floor feels like it gives a little more but it doesn't hurt anything and the grout doesn't crack at all. Installation was so much easier. It also reduces the floor height so much that we did not need a transition from strand woven bamboo (glue down) to tile.
