Answer: 
Good Afternoon,
Design and coordinating products is a matter of personal preference and we always recommend that you decide for yourself what you feel matches best. We would recommend ordering a sample of these tiles and compare them to the floor prior to making a large purchase. We offer 4.5” x 5” samples of these tiles and would recommend ordering a sample of each to see if they work for your project.

Answer: 
Hi Dave,
This tile can be used on a driveway! This tile has an extremely high resistance to abrasion and can be used in high-traffic commercial locations including airport concourses. This tile has a break strength of 300 lbs, so it will be safe to park a car on it as well. This does not mean that anything over 300 lbs. cannot go on the tile.

Hi Dave,
This tile can be used on a driveway! This tile has an extremely high resistance to abrasion and can be used in high-traffic commercial locations including airport concourses. This tile has a break strength of 300 lbs, so it will be safe to park a car on it as well. This does not mean that anything over 300 lbs. cannot go on the tile. This number is found by a factory test that takes two pinpoints and applies pressure to the tile until the tile breaks or cracks. When preparing to lay any tile you need to make sure that the floor is completely level. Keep in mind that your tile is only as good as the surface it is attached, so any tile can break with an improper subfloor. We encourage getting a local contractor involved if there is still uncertainty with the install. If you choose to do this installation, you need to be sure that you have a perfect substrate prior to installing the tile. This includes making sure that the concrete is completely level, as well as free of any cracks or breaks. Damage to the subfloor could result in cracking or breakage of the tile. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Being as you are installing these tiles on pillars, this installation could be done. Being as this tile absorbs water and is not frost resistant, we normally would not recommend this for an outdoor installation.

Hi Jay,
Being as you are installing these tiles on pillars, this installation could be done. Being as this tile absorbs water and is not frost resistant, we normally would not recommend this for an outdoor installation. This is because when the tile is on a horizontal surface water pools up underneath the tile. When the tile absorbs water and the temperature changes, the tile will expand and contract which can result in cracking. If you are concerned about this installation, we can offer a couple of porcelain options. The Tundra Por Rustico http://thd.co/29lKUAD and Elba Rustico http://thd.co/1SHUAEW are both similar in design and are available for sample. If you have any further questions or want instructions for ordering samples, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful The colors are beautiful and a very sturdy product very pleased with these tile July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our kitchen floor Easy to install, looks great, lots of compliments, we love it May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Attica Caldera Tile This tile is dense and colored perfectly! Each piece interlocks with the next tightly with minimal to no need for grout. I used this on a wall above a fireplace. A great alternative to other faux stones that stick out way too much from the wall April 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking tile I ordered 8 cases. 1 complete case arrived broken; however, my contractor was able to use it anyway for areas that needed cut pieces. I like the way the finished project looks and have gotten good comments from friends and family. We used pewter caulk which seems to be a good match to the lines in the tile "between stones." We also used 511 Impregnator sealer over tile and grout. The bathroom is small and it's hard to get a good photograph of the complete project, but I tried and did include some. My contractors comment was, now that he has worked with this wavy edge, large tile, he feels confident he can work with any tile. I only took my star rating down because of the complete case of broken tile. February 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy! This is not in the stores so I was a little nervous about selecting tile online. It turned out great! The tile fits like a jigsaw so it was really easy to apply to my kitchen peninsula. This was my first tile job so it went slow, but it was worth doing it myself (after the free home depot workshop, ofcourse). The ONLY reason why I gave it a 4 was because 2 of the tile came damaged. But I was able to use them for some of the slimmer cuts that I needed. May 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thrilled and delighted! After months of agonizing over tile for our two entry ways, we found this. The color and style seemed just what we would like so we ordered it. Putting it down was very weird due to the scalloped edges but once we grasped the concept as a jigsaw puzzle it went quickly. Cutting the tile for the edges was also a bit strange as the scallops had to be retained, but once again it was merely a matter of figuring out what was needed. The instructions were generic, pretty much worthless. Now that it is all down, grouted and sealed, we are extremely pleased. A favorite games is "find the seam", almost impossible to do thanks to the random waviness of the design. Whoever designed this product is a genius! November 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks nice, but a lot of tile cutting I used this tile for a basement shower installation. Given the fairly small space, there were a LOT of cuts. I think out of about 50 tiles, there were only 8 that didn't need to be cut on at least one side. That created a lot of waste. The nice thing was that with such large tiles, tiling the shower was a very fast job, even with all the cutting. This was my first home project with tile work. The uneven edges on the tiles required just a little more planning on where and how to start laying the tiles, and as others have mentioned, be sure to rotate the tiles around when applying so that the pattern isn't so obvious. The wavy lines make for very simple installation, and you don't have to be super critical that every gap between tiles is perfect. I used 1/8 spacers and they seemed to leave a nice line once those spaces and the other gaps between individual stones were grouted. I used Winter Grey grout, unsanded on the tile, and sanded on the trim. Both matched very well. I will say that sponging the grout required CONSTANT rinsing of the sponge. On the unsanded grout, I had to rinse out the sponge in fresh running water after every single swipe with the sponge. It took about 4 hours just to grout the shower walls, due to all the rinsing and wiping. Once I got the grout off of the "stones", it dried in a couple of hours to a haze which wiped off pretty easy with cheesecloth, leaving a very nice looking wall. I'd say well worth the additional effort. April 5, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It looks fake The fake grout between the fake stones disappointed us. I thought there would be real grout between real stones. I have to return it. Too bad I can't find loose stones attached to a mesh in a darker / brown tone. January 29, 2016
