I really wanted a marble finish where the tile was nice and smooth and has a little bit of shine to it. Does this tile shine at all? It appears to be like a sand stone finish and kind of rough.

Answer: 
It so fat works great for us. We have 2 dogs as well. You can do one of 2 things if you are concerned about moisture. These tiles are groutable so you can do that with a sealer or no grout and use a almond colored caulking on the seams where the tiles meet. With a good install the tiles are very close together.

Answer: 
I have this in my bathroom at the moment and am not noticing any issues with moisture. Just make sure if you space it and use grout that you use a sealer on the grout.
As for the dogs comment, it takes a good amount of force to scratch or scuff this stuff. Much better hold up than the cheaper peel/ stick tiles.

Answer: 
Just FYI: I bought one square of this as a sample. I took it home & tried to scratch it with the dull side of a standard knife utensil (not a steak knife). It left no marks at all. I was impressed. It was as if it were ceramic tile. I bought samples of other vinyl tile, BTW. They each had varying degrees of showing marks from the knife, except this one, which showed no marks.

It has been my experience that the adhesive on this tile will withstand any exposure to moisture. We had a flood in our house while we were away due to a broken water line and after four days under a couple of inches of water the sheet vinyl floor in the rest of our house was floating. Where the Traffic Master was in our kitchen and dining room, however, we had absolutely no problems. It stayed tight and was the only flooring in the house we didn't have to replace.
I would lay the tiles as close to each other as possible to minimize water intrusion, but I don't anticipate any problems with water getting under the tiles.
I have several tiles that were left over after my original installation and after six years the adhesive is still as strong as it was when I first installed the floor. Read Less

Although you "can" I wouldnt recommend it. Often times the glue will not stick properly to those types of surfaces without seriously cleaning it well. Sometimes even scuffing or using detergents to ensure all waxes and other coatings are off prior to new installation is something to take into consideration as well.
For time and money you may be better going with a thin underlayment then using the primer Read More

For time and money you may be better going with a thin underlayment then using the primer stuff to help with adhesion.
If by chance you do it anyway then without knowing if what your placing this over is a one piece vinyl floor or an older peel and stick 12x12, but if the latter then I would suggest you do not place the seams directly ontop of one another. Meaning dont follow the same pattern that was used and instead put the new tile over the seams of the older flooring. So 1 of these new tiles should cover 4 corners of the older floor.
Hope that helps. Read Less

We are a high traffic/high mess family (a 6 year old and a large dog), and this flooring has been great for us so far. We used it in the bathroom, kitchen, and hallway, and we also used the thinner traffic master adhesive tile in our outer hallway. Hope this helps! Read Less

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy with this product... Found this on clearance at my local Home Depot just before New Years Day...I mixed in a few Shasta (dark brown) tiles with these in a diamond pattern in my kitchen and dining area. I also grouted to get a more realistic look...with the leftovers, I attached some plywood to my wall underneath my cabinets to make a back splash and it came out pretty nice... Did have a few tiles (3 out of around 350) where the corners lifted after I grouted it but it was pretty easy to remove, put a new tile in and re-grout...this happened within a day of grouting them...the floor has been down about 7 weeks now and no other issues have come up... Very happy so far... February 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer beware! I bought this tile to put over my basement. I bought about 2,000 sq. feet in total (several purchases until completed). The first batch looked great; it looks like stone and is groutable. Unfortunately, Trafficmaster has some quality control issues. Mixed in with my second purchase, I found that there were batches of tile that looked sun-faded and cheap, and obviously didn't match the tile that was already laid down. Eventually, I bought some more tile at another HD to finish my project, but that too had that same faded and bland look. I was able to salvage my project by finishing off the perimeter with the faded *rap, and switched the rest of the project to a yet to be decided product. August 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent low-cost tile! I've used this tile at my rental property (24 units) for six kitchens so far, and it is holding up very well! It looks great, almost like ceramic tile, resists water well, and is surprisingly tough. Easy to install, though make sure to check the date on the box for the newest batch, as the older ones tend to lose a bit of stickiness. Cut with a utility knife and snap apart, these tiles are quite thick and rigid. They adhere well to plywood subfloor and also existing vinyl sheet or tile, just make sure to clean the existing floor very well before applying. If you install on a very hot day you may notice some minor shrinkage at the grout lines during colder weather. Damaged tiles are a breeze to replace, simplifies my job considerably! All in all and excellent option for a budget stick-on tile, very pleased with this product so far, and will continue to use as long as they're available. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE MY NEW KITCHEN FLOOR! I decided on a whim to redo my kitchen/entryway/powder room floor in my townhouse - it had disgusting, yellowed self-stick tiles that had shifted and were collecting grime in the seams. Since the thought of that happening again was abhorrent to me, but I didn't want to go with real tile due to cost and hardness, I opted for the Exodus tiles and grouting them. And I am THRILLED with the results! It looks 10x better than I expected (well, anything would have been an improvement...). What I had hoped might be a 1-weekend project turned into 2-weekends-and-several-evenings because of the type of grout I used, and cutting the tile got increasingly harder once the blisters formed, and I had to replace a toilet, and it was just me doing everything...blah blah blah. Anyway, I was so thrilled with how it looked that I decided against replacing my shoe molding and just repainted the baseboards and used sanded caulk along the edges instead. Looks so streamlined and simple. I love, love, LOVE my floor now! The colors in the tile complement my oak cabinets, gray walls, white appliances and Silestone counters beautifully. Guests can't believe it's vinyl tile, and several can't believe I installed it myself. Very happy!! November 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this tile I love the way this flooring feels on my feet. You can use grout if you want to, but i chose not to. The online color is way off. It is more of beautiful brown/beige color. It has no scratches or scuffs. My dog runs on it and nothing has happened to it. If you do not lay them down perfectly next to one another, they will separate a little bit with time. But nothing very noticeable. It is thicker than other stick tiles, so it is more difficult to cut. I recommend changing your blade OFTEN. I had very sore wrists and fingers from cutting so much. It is easy to clean, and does not show dirt much at all. It turned out great, made a huge difference in our flooring. Just beautiful. I will use in my next home as well. May 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent, easy to install flooring for those inexperienced with floor installing & on a budget I've put this flooring in two houses and everyone comments on how nice it is. I put this in the combined kitchen/living/dining/mudroom area of a house we were preparing to sell that had horrible old carpeting and vinyl. I didn't want to spend much as we were selling the house and used this product in alternating colors of Shasta and Exodus. We got 4 full price offers in 24 hours, people raved about the flooring. I just installed it again in a second house. The attached picture isn't the best due to poor cell phone camera and poor lighting but I wanted to attach it as I haven't seen anyone post a picture yet of these alternating colors...everyone who sees it raves about it. People never guess it isn't real ceramic tile (even though I didn't grout it). I went the groutless route both times as I'm an amateur and also wanted to get the project finished fast. June 24, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not Easy To Install This is not as easy to install as they say it is. If you know nothing about laying flooring I do not recommend that you do it yourself. Hire a pro. My husband & I read & watched all the you tube videos & they make it look so easy. It's not. I do have to say the flooring looks nice once its down, but don't look at it real close because you can see the seams. Even though we had the seams as close together you can still see some of the seams. Some of them when you would have them close together then when you would put the next one down the other one would move a little. Just not as easy as they say it is. After the flooring is down you can see some of the glue coming up. Hire a professional & save yourself the grief. February 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product! I used TrafficMaster vinyl tile in exodus, and the recommended pre-mixed SimpleGrout in sandstone. It's still hard work, but I (a chick) was able to tile an entire bathroom by myself with this product, which would have never been possible with ceramic tile. The results aren't perfect, but it does look really good, especially considering that I had never tiled anything before. My only complaint is that many of the tiles had places with ZERO adhesive on them. This worried me, so I glued all of them down with a vinyl adhesive. This added to the time and cost of the project, but at least they won't be popping up now....at least I hope! March 11, 2013
