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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE IT! WAY easier to work with then I thought, grout filled in all the holes on some of the tiles I was afraid to use. Looks awesome and if given the change to start over, I would have use the same tile June 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks Great! Maybe not a first time DIY'er tile tho. This is a perfect size tile if your floors are a bit uneven you don't need to worry so much as you would with a larger format tile. It was easy to cut and install - I loved that each tile was just 3x6 which makes it light and less cumbersome a task. It arrived with lots of broken pieces so order a lot more than you need. It has lots of voids and holes so be sure to seal it at least two coats before attempting to grout. You will still have a hard time cleaning the grout off the tiles so be sure to pick a color of grout that will accent the tile, I recommend doing a few trials on a tile or two of a couple different colors of grout to see which you like best. We installed this in a small 25 sq foot bathroom floor with white baseboards and pale blue-grey painted walls. It was a major upgrade!!! Gorgeous. You will want to grout and then seal the grout and tiles again after the grout has dried. Since tiles are so small It will take longer to get a big space laid out - so be careful to watch the dryness/consistency of your thin set as you go. Maybe mix up a smaller batch to start. May 30, 2016
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by I really enjoyed this project! This travertine stone is gorgeous! I Love the porus, smooth look and the mingled light and dark colors. I do feel the packaging can be a little better even though I did not have any broken stone tiles, they were very dusty. I started off by taking my vacuum cleaner and going over each stone to get rid of the dust and grit. A wet sponge was used to wipe each stone and I emptied my water after every pack. I placed each stone facing up on a towel and let dry over night. Wipe down your walls with water and vinegar to get rid of grease and dirt, let dry over night. The next day I used 511 prego sealer with a paint sponge while still on towel and let sit on stones for 3-5 minutes, wipe off with white cloth and cure over night. Simple mat placed on wall (very sticky) be sure to over lap so you don't have a gap between simple mat. Do not peel layer off simple mat unless your ready to place your tiles on wall because the sticky will dry out! Use a grout float to get out air bubbles on simple mat. It's easier to have tiles on counter how there to go on wall! I bought a tile cutter for $20.00 it's NOT the best but will work. We broke a few trying to score them. To get dust off I vacuumed them again to make sure they were good and clean before placing on simple mat! Spacers were placed between bottom and sides of my stone tiles, you may have to move tiles around just a little to get straight. I Let stones bond over night with simple. So that my porus stones didn't get grout in them, I taped EACH stone. That's why I chose this perticular stone was because the porus look! Use premixed grout (linen was my choice of color). Now it's time to grout with a grout float. Only do small sections at a time and take tape off once your finished because I noticed on a few that the grout made tape gooey. Taping was worth the time! I put grout between counter and stone, I've read several things to do about this (grout or put caulk to protect). Protect your counters because grout will dry and is very hard to get up. Im redoing my counters anyway so I just removed what I could and sanded counters later. Remove tape at this time, may need a sharp knife to help get tape started. Take damp white cloth and wipe down. Now let dry 24 hours! I waited a week and put another coat of 511 dealer ALL over backsplash, grout and stone. Caulk if needed. June 24, 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 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 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.
