            It’s false advertisement
            Used as described, but company lied about its quality and it cost me time, material, and a headache! Don’t get it. It seems to good to be true, because it is all my material started dropping off the walls within 48 hours.

                Falling off everywhere customer service no help
                So I installed this product after seeing the 5 star reviews and I spend a lot of money on this product. The next morning I was going to grout and it was coming off the wall and sagging tiles everywhere. I would never recommend this product to anyone ever. After speaking to their representative, he stated I should just peal off the tile and replace the glue spot. And reapply the tile after. $80 is not worth the worry of having to remove and replace anything!!

                  Do NOT waste your money!
                  Installed this correctly, followed all directions, removed all dust and tile has fallen off of the walls 3 weeks after installation.

                    Sped up install - holds tiles pretty well. A little weak on bottom tiles but overall happy and final product looks great

                    DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME
                    I spent 2 days putting this adhesive on my wall and then putting all the tile on for it to all fall off within 24 hours. I then had to rip all the adhesive off my wall which tore the paint off and use the traditional mortar method. Luckily none of my glass tile broke. Do not waste your time on this bad product.

                      cut down on time and mess
                      This was my first time doing a backsplash and this product made the mortar process incredibly simple and mess free. As most projects preparation was definitely the key. But once you get your counters and tiles prepped, the tile mat process is just cutting the sheets to the proper size. I did notice the tile mat does not stick to spakle though it does stick well to joint compound. Also don’t play with the tiles once the grout is on because the moisture does seem to effect the sticky.

                        Tile slid down the wall
                        After first applying it looked beautiful! Went back to grout and as soon as I removed the spacers the tiles started sliding down the wall… I don’t have time for quick fixes that don’t work. I should have known better. Will never purchase again. What a waste of $60 and time.

                          Um, yeah, WOW!! If you have a custom tile where you want to spend the time and really choose tiles that give you that perfect look there is no way you can use traditional mortar. It would dry too fast. These are absolutely amazing to use and give you time to layout your wall just how you want it.
