Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2ManyProjects We used it to tile right over a marble slab!
I read as many reviews as I could to see if this stuff would work to tile over existing marble. I found one or two saying that they used it on shiny, non-porous surfaces, so I took a chance. It worked! We put small mosaic slate tiles on mesh right on top of the marble fireplace surround and it has stayed put for over two months now. We did not need grout and had no issue with drying time since we are in the mountains and the air is super dry up here. Heat from the fireplace has not been an issue. We have used the fireplace since the re-tiling, but it's a gas insert and doesn't throw a lot of heat. We have a ton of Omnigrip left over, but it was worth the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boxster Very forgiving
After setting the tiles we decided we didn't like the way our pattern looked. We were thrilled that we were still able to remove the tiles, remove the OmniGrip and rearrange the tiles into a different configuration.
Was it messy....yes, but well worth it. As you can see our back splash looks like we hired a professional tile installer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beeny56 Great on Stone wall tiles
I had 75sq. feet of 12x12 wall tile to install. It was a stone tile with no grouting required (nice). OminGrip
was extremely convenient to work with at my slow DIY pace. The stone 12x12 tiles held in place wonderfully and easy to spread in tight corners.
I did not have to grout, so the longer drying time didn't hurt me like others have implied.
It is pricey- but the premix is very convenient for someone who has to fit DIY projects around your available time.

It did just as advertised, it stuck the tile to the wall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doesitherself Great product
The product was very easy to work with and allowed for ample work time. Used to install small aluminum mosaic tiles and larger glass tiles for backsplash in kitchen adhering well. Cleaned up easily with water. Requires 72 dry time before grouting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYLovers OmniGrip saved a SimpleMat Disaster
My husband and I got a quote on remodeling the kitchen in our recently purchased home, but the cost was shockingly out of our budget. So, we decided to DIY remodel our kitchen with gel stain cabinets, faux granite painted countertops and SimpleMat tiled back splash. This product was highly recommended by a HomeDepot sales representative and we were impressed with its simplicity. Well, please be warned, it was a disaster! We tiled on a Friday and the tiles began falling from the SimpleMat the very next morning. After going back to Home Depot and explaining to them our disaster, the sales representative highly recommended OmniGrip. Luckily, we hadn't grout the tile, and was able to remove the few tiles that had not yet falling completely off the SimpleMat. The mat appears to be permanently glue to the drywall. So, we just put the Omnigrip on the SimpleMat and it has been a lifesaver! Our tile has been up now for 2 weeks and we plan to grout this weekend. Just wanted to make sure this stuff would work before grouting. We highly recommend OmniGrip just stay away from SimpleMat. I wish I could upload pictures to show you that I'm not fibbing about how SimpleMat is a joke.

Excellent product and easy to apply. I will use this product again when I do my basement bathroom and when I do my kitchen backsplash.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by btc5 i love this stuff
i have used this on floors, walls, ceilings, with big , medium and small tiles, on concrete, plywood and tile board. i have never had a problem. this stuff cures flexible and i believe it helps prevent tiles from cracking. i have yet to have tiles crack on me using this stuff. it is very expensive compared to thinset mortor but i have had problems with tiles cracking over time with thinset. people think this stuff should cure hard like thinset but its not supposed to. its stays flexible like caulking. most of the time this cures for me over night, but in humid areas it may take a couple days. its never been a real issue for me like others have complained about and i have used this on many jobs. the cost is my only complaint on this product.
