do I need to use backerboard for installation, or can I just affix directly to walls?

Answer: 
My contractor used a plywood back board to raise the shell tile up to the same depth as the porcelain tile when the shell tie was used as an accent around the shower, but on other walls where he used only shell tile, he applied it directly to the wall. He said it was not hard to work with.

Answer: 
Hi Chris,
It would matter what the wall surface is. Any adherent that is used for porcelain or ceramic mosaics would be able to be used with this shell product, but as for your wall surface type, we would recommend you call Custom Building Products and inquire with them as to what would best work for whatever your wall is composed of.

Answer: 
It all depends what type of fireplace you are getting (factory built or traditional residential masonry fireplace) as well as where you plan to have the tile placed and its thickness. But I am pretty sure you cannot use it around the opening as it is combustible. Please refer to your manufacturer to find out the installation instructions as well as heat level for this tile. Good luck.

Answer: 
Good morning,
This tile would be fine in any area where there is not direct exposure to heat. I'm not sure what type of tile you imagine for the hearth- maybe if you describe it, I could make some recommendations.

Answer: 
This tile has very narrow grout joints and would need unsanded grout. My understanding is that generally, unsanded grout is recommended for grout joints up to 1/8 in. I recently had this product installed as a kitchen backsplash with unsanded grout and I love the results.

Answer: 
Hello Frency,
For the Merola Conchella Subway Mosaic we recommend un-sanded grout. Using a sanded grout could scratch or remove the natural sheen of this shell tile.
I hope this helps!

Answer: 
Hi MLO,
You can use whatever grout suits your decor, but we would recommend a grout that is close to the shell color but not matching exactly would be very classic and flattering. Home Depot's line of grout by Custom Building Products has a #10 Antique White that would be suitable, or perhaps #333 Alabaster.
If you decide to order this tile, you can bring a piece to your local Home Depot, where they Read More

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highlight of our kitchen remodel This tile is absolutely beautiful. The luminescent highlights brighten our small kitchen and it has both brown and gray tones, so it looks good with natural colors. I did spend some time selecting a laminate for the countertop that would complement it and not compete with it. My daughter picked this out and as soon as I saw it, I knew that it would be a non-negotiable component of the design! July 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful tile! We haven't installed this yet so I can't rate that part, but it is absolutely gorgeous! April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful complement to my marble tile shower These tiles were the perfect complement to the polished marble that I used in my tub surround and bathroom countertop. February 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes a Beautiful Backsplash This tile was very easy to work with and we're extremely pleased with the results. Take care that you not use too much adhesive as the thin tiles don't allow room for much grout. We used bright white adhesive and bright white grout and avoided uneven coloring. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this tile!!! Put this this around my fireplace, looks absolutely beautiful . Was easy to install, a little time consuming ,but well worth the time it took to get something not everyone else has. when the light changes during the day and shows different colors it's so pretty.went from a dark corner to one that is a focal point in the room. April 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful and delicate These tiles are quite beautiful. It is amazing that they can produce these out of natural materials. We are still in the renovation stage but These tiles are going to pull together all the changes very nicely. March 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful tile This tile is spectacular and adds just the right amount of bling. I used it as a border - It is very thin so additional backer board is needed for it to match surrounding tile. September 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gorgeous! The pictures do not do this tile justice! When the light hits it, there are subtle blues and greens that I cannot see when looking at it online. It was easy to install and a perfect choice for our bathroom remodel. August 13, 2015
