Hi - I am doing a screen porch floor. Would this be suitable? It will be very cold in the winter as it is located in northern Michigan.

Answer: 
Good Morning,
We would not recommend using this tile where freezing temperatures are present. This tile is ceramic, so if it is exposed to water the tile could possibly crack. Seeing as it is a screened in porch, it is not as much of a concern, but it is still a possibility. For these settings, we recommend using porcelain, which is frost resistant. For a similar design, we would recommend our Classico

We would not recommend using this tile where freezing temperatures are present. This tile is ceramic, so if it is exposed to water the tile could possibly crack. Seeing as it is a screened in porch, it is not as much of a concern, but it is still a possibility. For these settings, we recommend using porcelain, which is frost resistant. For a similar design, we would recommend our Classico mosaic http://thd.co/1VU7G5q or our Deco Calzado Ardesia http://thd.co/24fhloW. The Classico has the bright colors, similar to the Avila Arenal Décor that you have chosen, whereas the Deco Calzado Ardesia has the same slab format.

This tile could be used on a counter top. When considering what tile you would like to install as a countertop, you’ll want to look for the tile’s PEI Rating.

Good Afternoon,
This tile could be used on a counter top. When considering what tile you would like to install as a countertop, you’ll want to look for the tile’s PEI Rating. PEI Rating (short for Porcelain Enamel Institute) measures the tile’s resistance to abrasion from dirt. This is a PEI 3 tile which makes it “suitable for medium-duty residential floors including kitchens, halls, corridors, balconies, terraces and areas used more often with normal footwear and small amounts of dirt”. It is not likely that your countertop will be subjected to worse conditions that this. One thing to keep in mind with this tile is that it has a third fire glaze and is slightly textured, meaning there will be some slight dimension on your countertop. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this was helpful!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I used this tile as a border around my bathroom mirror and it turned out great! I recently took a chance and purchased 3 Merola Avila Arenal Decor tiles from the Home Depot website. They looked just like the picture on their website and shipped very quickly via UPS. I cut each tile into 5 pieces that were 2.5" X 12.5". I used these to create a tile border around one of my bathroom mirrors. I call it a tile frame because it frames the mirror. The tiles cut very easily and I had no breakage using a fairly inexpensive tile saw. I used a Locktite mirror adhesive to glue them directly onto the mirror. I left gaps between the tile pieces to match the fake grout lines in the tile and then I grouted the gaps in a matching grout. I looked for weeks for wood frames that I could use to cover the very plain mirrors that had no edging, but this idea was so much prettier and is very practical because I can wipe down the tile easily. It probably worked out to be a cheaper idea too as the wood frames were costly. Thank you Home Depot and Merola Tile! May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful! I can't comment on the ease of installation as someone did it for us. However, we are very happy with the results. We put two of these in our kitchen as accents and we couldn't be more pleased. December 29, 2015
