Questions & Answers

Why must my tiles be grouted in 24 hours using simplemat?

Started tiling first section but wont be able to finish cutting tiles for a couple of days. Have at least 10 that are un-cut in the first section.
Asked by: Subway tiler
be careful if you use sealer with simple mat. i used sealer on my stone mosaic tiles and it began to fall off before i then had a chance to grout.

Can it be used to install backsplash for a vanity? what happens if it gets wet while washing hands/face/etc?

Asked by: Paul
yes you can,when you tile and grout you are creating a barrier between the water and the mat,so no issues there

can simple mat be used in kitchen wall behind gas stove

Asked by: hombre
Yes you can,I have installed it that way and no issues so far,I would suggest you seal the grout and tile to avoid grease staining the grout.

SimpleMat 10 sq. ft. Tile Setting Mat is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 327.

The SimpleMat that comes in 10 sheets works much better than the SimpleMat that comes in a roll. This 10 sheet package has a cover over the sticky on both sides. The roll package covers only one side. I would not recommend the SimpleMat that comes in a roll. This is easy to use and it works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back splash First time we have used this product, overall was very good. The rolling out of the mat in a long run can be a challenge to keep straight and flat. After reading reviews of tile coming off we were concerned, but using 3x6 I pressed each one into backing hard as I could only had one area of problem rage being the very top edge seems that the adhesive has a void on the edges. We used lecture super grab and it was all good. The grout was not fun my wife came right behind me as the grout seemed to dry very fast indeed. Overall project came out real well great for smaller projects as ours, would recommend to others.

I bought it after a HomeDepot employee convinced me this product would work. Because it is so pricey I figured that was the trade off for reliable convenience. I WAS WRONG!! After prepping the walls, placing the simple mat, and placing and grouting the tile I was happy of my accomplishment. This was until I woke up to find that it all was falling down dinging up my brand new washer and dryer. There are a few times in my life where I saw red and felt like I was going to explode; this was one of them. I felt completely lied to and cheated. With blood boiling over I torn down the rest before it added further damage to my appliances. I followed the directions properly, spent days working this project, and nearly $1000.00. I went to HomeDepot to tell them my story and ask them to please take this product off their selfs so no one else will have to endure my experience. They immediately took steps to rectify the injustice that occurred. I was not expecting that, which alleviated my stress rapidly, to the point where I thought I was going to tear up with appreciation. They opened and led an investigation to regain what I lost. Longer story short, about two months later SimpleMat finally offered to reimbursed me the money spent on their product (about $60). As that was a slap in the face to me, because the real lose was the tile expense, I declined the offer and they came back a week or so later with a full reimbursement. Months later I redid this project with Omni Grip adhesive and Polyblend grout and it looks beautiful. NEVER BUY SIMPLE MAT PRODUCTS. Note: What really pushed me to write this HONEST review was reading the "5 star" reviews of this product. They are soooooo suspicious and seem fraudulent, especially since they are so lengthy and provide instructions for best results. lol come on, seriously don't fall for it, you'll regret it. Pictures: 1) Obviously the picture with the tile falling down is my attempt at this project with SimpleMat. The SimpleMat is still attached to the tile, as you can see. You'll see paint on my walls and unless SimpleMat recently changed their instructions, the mat was supposed to be able to be used over prepped painted walls. 2) The picture of the completed project was not used with SimpleMat and is still beautifully standing today.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great The mats are a neat idea. We were using sheets of penny round tiles and it was nice not to have to clean out the grout lines in between where thinset might have oozed and to be able to grout same day. Because the tiles are small and the instructions call for overlapping sheets, some of the tiles that are on the overlapped areas stick out differently from the ones around. It is also harder to slightly shift tiles into the right places since the glue pulls them back to where they were. The glue on the sheets also had problems holding tiles at times.

After seeing an online demo on Youtube, I thought this was an easy way to accomplished the job. BIG MISTAKE!!!! Luckily we were only doing a small backsplash in our bathroom. I placed the SimpleMat on the wall and set the tile. The following day it was falling off the wall. I removed it, had to spackle the drywall, and went the tried and true way to install the tile. Save yourself a lot of headache and money and don't buy this product.

The instructions did not indicate that you need to grout the tiles right away so I left grouting for the next day. During the night several patches of the tiles fell off the wall and some of the tiles broke. I went ahead and stuck the tiles back onto the wall and then grouted right away. So far the tiles are holding. In the future I will just use thinset to install tiles.

Using the SimpleMat for this first time, I found it fairly easy to work... although working with any product that has an adhesive backing can be tricky to cut and apply. Following the instructions made installing the backsplash tile in our newly remodeled kitchen a breeze. For anyone that doesn't have 24-hours to wait while the tile cures before you apply the grout, SimpleMat is the way to go!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't hold to surface I purchased the simple mat to put up some backslash in my kitchen. It stuck up good at first thought it was pretty amazing but then one day or so later it just peels off of the wall and sticks to the back of your tile. I'm probably going to go with the bondura brand. Seems much thicker and able to actually hold to a surface. This product is too weak for even the lightest tile.
