Customer Questions & Answers

What is best color grout, sanded or unsanded?

Asked by: Ndm
I used un-sanded grout, much easier to use with the 1/16" spaces. I also used the Bone color grout, which once dried was a perfect match. I attached some pictures to my review on this tile, so you can see how the bone un-sanded looked together.

What is the best way to cut a pencil/mosaic tile like this?

It would seem that a usual powered wet saw might just rip the small tiles off of the backing, but that a manual cutter needs a larger tile to effectively score & snap the piece.
Asked by: MrMoneyPit
The wet saw worked fine, you do have to hold some of the tiles while uncomfortably close to the blade to keep them from popping off. On the smaller cuts I used tile nipper pliers. I think the tile nippers would have worked for most of my cuts, had I had the patience to do it piece by piece.

Is there a coordinating 12 x 24 tile for Jeffrey Court Egyptian Forest mini pencil? SKU 179220

Asked by: Jane
You can find Ankara color travertine at other tile retailers in several sizes that coordinates nicely with this product. I used it for the window sills and trim around the product.

I used this Egyptian Forest Mini Pencil 12" x 12" Marble tiles as flooring tile for a shower. It turned out very gourgous, and I got a lot of compliments on the finished job from th tiler. I also used (Jeffrey Court Creama 6 in. x 6 in. Honed Marble Floor/Wall Tile) to create the look I wanted. Grouted with bone color un-sanded grout. The grout lines in this mosaic are 1/16" so un-sanded is much easier to use. Used Creama round dome as finishing borders on the edge of the tiles as needed which looks great too. am very happy with the results and will be doing this treatment in another property. As far as mosaic sheets go, I felt that the value was very good compared to the other tiles available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect finish to my project! This mini pencil tile was perfect for my laundry room backsplash. I saw the product at a Home Depot in California and was able to order online as our local Texas stores do not carry it. I did the complete installation myself without the assistance of my hubby. My biggest challenge was the right cutting tool that luckily my brother-in-law had and loaned to me - see it in the photo. Originally I purchased a cheep one at Home Depot (under $10) and it only cracked the tile pieces. Some of the tiles were cracked, but I just cut them out and replaced individually on the wall. I used a strip vertically on each edge of the ends of the tile which made a nice finish to the project. I used mastic and linen sanded grout. I did watch some video online before hand to help me purchase the correct products and to see how difficult it would be.

It was extremely frustrating working with this tile that I ordered from Home Depot online. I had a professional install it and we realized there were two distinct color lots. 5 sheets had to be removed and I ran around looking for more tile at our local home depot. It was impossible to match and my kitchen backsplash is now a mess. I will most likely be tearing it out. Also, after the light cream grout was applied the overall color of the tile seemed to change to gold. This was not what I had pictured for the color to be.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color is deceptive! I love the style but the color of each piece varies as it does with all natural stone. We intentionally mixed up pieces from the boxes per the directions even though at first glance they all look alike. What we found is that once they were up you would see blocks throughout that were darker than others....a little bit like patchwork.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tricky Installation, pleased with end results We purchased this tile to accent the Quartz Sierra Madre Countertop we had recently purchased at Home Depot. Because the tile looked difficult to install, we hired a tile guy to complete the job. After the installation was complete, we grouted with a Canvas colored grout. We loved the results, with the lights out! Once we re-installed the under-counter lighting, we realized every joint where the tiles united was showing and what we first thought was a beautiful backsplash, turned into a sickening feeling in our stomachs. Knowing we had splurged on an expensive tile, only to be disappointed with the outcome, made us sick inside. We called the tile guy to see what could be done. After much discussion, including tearing out and re-installing, we decided the because the tile was stone, we would first try grinding the seams to create a smooth surface, and resealing. What a SAVE! After one more day of grinding, sanding and cleaning up dust, we bought a Sealer & Enhancer and finished the job. We are back to pleased with the outcome. While I am going to check the "Yes" I would recommend the product, please use caution during the installation. The joints are tricky and require precision.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to Install The individual tiles break easily. They are heavy on the mesh so they reposition easily. I had to stick 1/8 spaces in some tiles until mortar set. Difficult to cut - chip easily. Try using masking take and cutting on mesh side. Not easy to install if your corners are not straight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for kitchen backsplash I had to remove the old glass tile backsplash and redo the sheet rock before I could re-tile. I chose this tile because it's small and hid some flaws . When I had my granite counters installed, it was discovered that my counter was not level. It went from about 1/2" to 1" from one end of the counter to the other. I had tried to patch this in with my extra glass tiles but it always bothered me. This pencil tile looks great. I started at the counter base and it runs under up underneith my cabinets. Even if you look under the cabinet it is not discernable that things aren't level. It reflects light well and looks contemporary and was easy to install. I bought a tile saw and found it easy to cut. I would recommend this to anyone.
