I plan on installing Snapstone 6" x 24" floating tile floor in a bath with shower and toilet only (25 sq ft). Do I need to install a moisture barrier or pad under this floor like you would on a floating hardwood floor.

Answer: 
The back of the SnapStone tray has an overmold that functions as an underlayment so no additional underlayment is required or recommended. If you wish to apply a moisture barrier, we suggest a roll-on product, such as RedGard by Custom Building Products. Also, ensure that your sub floor meets the following specifications:
• 5/8” sub floor over 16” OC joists
• The floor must not have deflection greater

The back of the SnapStone tray has an overmold that functions as an underlayment so no additional underlayment is required or recommended. If you wish to apply a moisture barrier, we suggest a roll-on product, such as RedGard by Custom Building Products. Also, ensure that your sub floor meets the following specifications:
• 5/8” sub floor over 16” OC joists
• The floor must not have deflection greater than 1/360 of the span when measured under a 300 lb concentrated load (See ASTM C 627).
• For tile with all edges shorter than 15", maximum allowable variation is 1/4" in 10' from the required plane, with no more than 1/16" variation in 12" when measured from the high points in the surface. For tiles with at least one edge 15" in length, maximum allowable variation is 1/8" in 10' from the required plane, with no more than 1/16" variation in 24" when measured from the high points in the surface, as indicated by the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) Handbook. We recommend laying a straight edge on the sub floor, working your way across the room, to identify any areas that do not meet this spec. High spots should be sanded down and low spots filled with a cement patching compound.

Answer: 
The sub floor requirements are:
- Minimum of 5/8" subfloor
- 16" OC (on center) joists
- Tolerance (flatness) requirement: Sub floor for tiles less than 15" in length must be within a tolerance of &1frac4;" in 10' and 1/16" in 1' as defined by the TNCA Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation. For tiles with at least one edge 15" or greater in length, maximum allowable variation is 1/8" in 10' from the

The sub floor requirements are:
- Minimum of 5/8" subfloor
- 16" OC (on center) joists
- Tolerance (flatness) requirement: Sub floor for tiles less than 15" in length must be within a tolerance of &1frac4;" in 10' and 1/16" in 1' as defined by the TNCA Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation. For tiles with at least one edge 15" or greater in length, maximum allowable variation is 1/8" in 10' from the required plane, with no more than 1/16" variation is 24" when measured from the high points in the surface. Identify high and low spots that are out of tolerance by laying a 6'-8' straight edge across your subfloor. High spots should be removed by planing, sanding or grinding. Low spots should be filled. When leveling the subfloor, use only portland-based fillers; never use gypsum-based fillers as they will support mold growth.
- Deflection requirement: The sub floor must not have deflection greater than 1/360 of the span when measured under a 300 lb concentrated load (See ASTM C 627). Inspect floor for movement. If movement is caused by loose boards, support them. If movement is caused by deflection or structural movement, consult a carpenter for structural repair.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 64 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic product This is a fantastic product. I used SnapStone to tile our laundry room floor and it was the first, and so far, only tiling project I have done. This system made my work look like it was done by a professional. There was no hassling with thin set and the joints came out perfectly uniform and level. The customer service at SnapStone is awesome. They were very accessible by phone and were willing to take their time to talk me through all of my questions. Joe even gave me his cell number and encouraged me to call any time I had a question, which I did at least three times. I won't say it was easy but if you follow the instructions, take your time with layout and have a solid floor that meets the requirements for deflection, your project should turn out looking as if it were done by a pro. April 22, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stick to regular tile next time Grout cracking after 12 months. Tiles chip easily. Difficult to cut tiles. I would just go with regular tile floor next time July 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tiles not very durable We were initially impressed with this tile when we installed it in our kitchen. However, despite the fact that my husband was careful to keep the subfloor deviations within the specified margin of error, we have had constant problems with cracked tiles. We do have a creaky old home, but we were under the impression that the flexibility of the floating floor made it ideal for that. We think the tile is just not the best quality. We dropped a glass vase on the floor and it shattered a large spot on the tile where it made contact. Didn't even crack the glass. So we definitely won't be buying this again or recommend it to anyone. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect the best tile you will buy ever at any price anytime June 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install I don't recommend installing tile if you only have one bathroom and you live in the home during the installation. These were easy to install once we got the floor level. We just put down new plywood throughout. It's only been installed for one week and we already have two cracked tiles. One of them cracked after dropping the toilet lid on it. I don't know if normal tile would have cracked as well since I've never had tile before. I don't recommend shipping this to your home because the trucking company Home Depot used was very rude when I had to call them. They require you to be home for the delivery but nobody told me that until after they tried to deliver. We have recommended these tiles to our friends because they look nice and were quick and easy to install. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looking good after four years I installed this in my kitchen about four years ago. It was a DIY project. We were diligent about getting the wood floor underneath as level and planar as possible and that took the bulk of the effort. The snapstone itself was easy to put together and grout. Four years on still looks great. April 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed We put this in about two years ago and we are pretty disappointed. It looked great and then we started seeing cracks, gouges from just normal wear and tear. The surface was gouged right off so you can see the white underneath. We don't wear shoes in the house. We have a dog and we thought it might be his claws, but this tile should be a lot stronger than a dogs claws. We have ceramic tile in other parts of the house that is many more years older, and that ceramic has never done this, and porcelain was supposed to be stronger. That is why we went with it. I think it is more of the top glaze coat that is a problem, and not the tile itself. . February 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great look but doesn't last We purchased with the suggested under floor heating system and followed the instructions to the letter. It all went down very easily, and it looked great when completed. We allowed the grout to cure as instructed and sealed it appropriately. After we were able to start using the floor, the grout became dingy and dirty after only a few days. Within a month we had our first broken tile, but it was under a stool so we thought that caused it. Three years later and over 30 tiles are now broken, some to the point that they cut our feet. In addition, the grout has started to crack and come up. We called the company and they sent someone to investigate, but cracked tiles are not covered under warranty, and our floor is beyond variance, even though we followed and documented the process exactly as instructed. They did give us two cases and a bucket of grout for our trouble, but this fixes less than half our issue. Do not use for high traffic areas. Good for the mud room or laundry, maybe the bathroom, but find something else for the kitchen and living areas. March 30, 2016
