With a large selection of sizes and accessories to choose from, chiaro can easily be laid in a pattern or single layout. This particular travertine is suitable for residential and commercial installations, including kitchens and bathrooms. Note: Inspect all tiles before installation.

The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer. After installation, vendor disclaims any liabilities.

Individual tiles or a Sheet?

Is this individual tiles, or is it a sheet on mesh backing? If it's individual, and 8 come in a case (which is 1 sq. ft) how do 8 - 3x6 tiles make up a square foot? I am trying to determine how much to order, and I've gotten 3 different responses from 3 different people.

Answer: 
Either way 1 square foot is one square foot. If you are lining up the tiles with straight grout lines then add 10% extra for cuts and mistakes. If you are making a brick pattern or at an angle then add 20% to 25% for cutting and scrap. If you add a pattern in the middle area then add 30% due to the change in patterns. Have fun with the tiles. Mesh or loose it really does not matter. Something on a mesh Read More

I usually end up cutting the mesh just to get even spacing. Read Less

Answer: 
They come in a package and do not have a mesh backing. There are eight tiles stacked on top of each other, like a deck of cards (but eight tiles, not fifty two). Each tile is 3 in X 6 in, or 1/4 ft X 1/2 ft = 1/8 ft. So, eight tiles X 1/8 ft per tile = one square ft. The photo is a bit misleading and could easily be misinterpreted as tiles on a mesh backing.

I bought several packages of the tiles and they are stacked, not laid out in a square. BTW, I suggest you carefully look through the packages because they can have a few broken tiles that are not visible from the outside of the package, for example, if the tile is split in half and you would not see this from the outside of the package. I hope that makes sense.
These really are great looking tiles, very natural and sort of soft to the touch. Travertine has several pores or holes, which get filled by grout, and I would recommend a couple of coats of travertine tile sealer, which Home Depot sells. I put three coats on my entry way floor (I also bought the travertine Medallion that HD sells and used these tiles as a border and it looks great!). The sealant helps keep moisture or dripping water out, which could otherwise seep into the spaces between tile and grout or thinset.
Good luck! Read Less

Thank you for your question. The Bologna Chiaro 3 in. x 6 in. Tumbled Travertine Floor and Wall Tile is a field tile and not a mosaic. Each piece would approximately cover 0.125 sq. ft. & 8pieces will approximately cover 1 sq. ft.

Answer: 
I am making an assumption here. When you say backer board you are referring to either Hardi-board or a cement board. No you do not need to change the drywall that is there if it is in good condition. No soft spots or damage. If you need to replace the board I would suggest using a moisture resistant board, greenboard. Properly primed and the proper tile adhesive.

Answer: 
No, you don't have to use backer board. However, if you install this product on the existing sheetrock, etc., you must use mastic instead of thin set. If you install on your existing sheetrock, it is recommended by professional tile layers to sand it by hand with either 80 grit sand paper, or steel wool. This provides small grooves for the mastic to adhere to.

Answer: 
Any tile can be used in a shower but as a contractor I would attempt to talk any customer out of natural stone in a high moisture area. Penetrating sealers only last 6 months maximum. Then water will be absorbed through the stone and loosen the adhesive causing the stone to come loose from the wall. Don't get me wrong, I love natural stone but it is best in the kitchen wall.

Because these are natural stones they need to be sealed and the frequency depends on the use. In a show you may need to seal more often.
Thanks for your inquiry.

Answer: 
Any natural stone when sealed and maintained properly most stains will wash off with a mild detergent. Do not use course or rough cleaners, Soft Scrub, as it may discolor your tiles. Make sure you seal natural stone every 6 months max. Three to 4 months is better but can be hard to remember to do. Sealing is very easy, spray it on and wipe off any excess.

Hello Angie and thank you for your question.
The tile would be beautiful as a backsplash, however it will require some pre-installation and maintenance attention. Any open pits should be filled and the tiles should be sealed with a penetrating sealer before installing. Normal maintenance includes checking the tiles and refilling as needed (since the filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids) and sealing as needed to ensure a beautiful long life. Only mild cleaners should be used and any debris should be promptly wiped off the surface.
Be sure to also check out the customer reviews for additional information from persons who have installed this tile.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GORGEOUS!!!! I have always loved the look of authentic stone back splash especially with cream colored cabinets. so when we planned our remodel I knew exactly what I wanted. I saw these and Jeffrey court ones and my contractor ended up getting these. They were absolutely gorgeous before and after installation. I love the rustic look of the bricks and that they have holes. it adds so much character! April 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product and priced well Good product for the most part. Some tiles were broken but I guess that is to be expected. Shipping took about 7 days so plan accordingly; especially if you have to order more! March 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the price! The tile was great for a first time tiler. The uneven stone, color and variations in texture made it more forgiving/less noticeable when mistakes were made. I do suggest opening at least 3-4 packages in advance of tiling to mix the color variations. I also sealed 3 times before I grouted and used a sanded grout in a Linen color. I picked Linen because of a review I read but wish I would have chosen a Bone or Alabaster as I think it would have highlighted the colors and textures of the tiles better. Note that the tile is super dusty and it worried me that even after sealing it was still dusty. However, after grouting the dust went away. This tile is very inexpensive. I think all of the other supplies cost more money than the actual tile. Many people complained about broken tiles but I don’t think I had one broken tile in any of the 33 packs bought. I did have trouble returning the leftover tiles. It took one frustrating visit to Home Depot then two follow up calls. After about a week I got confirmation that the credit was going to go through. The money still is not in my bank account yet. August 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gorgeous! I was shocked at how gorgeous these stones are for such a modest price. They have a lot of natural texture and color variation, which I love. We used these for our backsplash and we actually chose not to grout them, so as not to fill in all of the craters and crevasses that give them such a unique character. Instead, we just stacked them and sealed the whole thing with a stone sealer at the end. The results are beautiful and we couldn't be happier!! Here is a picture shown with our Venetian Gold granite. April 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very beautiful tile, especially for the price. I would definitely recommend this tile, however you have to like the tumbled tile look. The tile has lots of holes and character. Holes fill in with grout and look good when finished. If you like DIY projects this product is easy to work with. Make sure you seal tile before grouting. October 15, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tumbled subway tile the tiles come neatly packaged..9 tiles for 1 square ft. colors and texture range made our backsplash organic and so very interesting. installed by a professional but it seemed he did not have problems. a few tiles were broken, but he was able to use those around electrical outlets and switches. very little waste. price point....super. LOVE the new look ! July 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Backsplash We love our backsplash. I sealed it twice before grout and once after with a glossy finish. We used a linen colored non-sanded grout. June 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great renovation product Had it professionally installed. Tile has a lot of character and we used the grout to fill in all the little holes and chips in the tumbled tile; that provided a consistent look across the backsplash. It looks terrific. Time less, old world look. April 6, 2015
