Questions & Answers

Do I have to grout if it's only being used as a backsplash?

Asked by: Emmakim
I came up with a great non-grout method for granite tile used as a backsplash and also for windowsills which were originally just sheetrock which needed lots of repair from water damage. I used the 3M clear 100% silicon as the adhesive and the grout. It was simple and foolproof and has now lasted 9 years with no sign of age. This is the same product used to hold giant pains of glass in comercial buildings so it will last.

How successful on showers?

Description states okay for showers, but then also notes not good for areas that get wet. Which is it as I have 3 walls needing to be completed this week in my master bath shower, using 12x12 tiles. Thank you.
Asked by: FirstTimeTiler
For tiles the size you are describing I would not use SimpleMat; I wouldn't use it in a shower wet/high moisture area. I have installed tile for over thirty years and experience has proven there is nothing better than a solid, well prepped (waterproofed) surface for installing tile in a shower. I have fixed hundreds of showers due to failure.

Can this mat be used to lay tile over tile on a floor?

I have tile in my laundry room that is outdated and would love to replace it. If I could tile over tile it would be much easier than to pull up old tile.
Asked by: Sarah
I wouldn't use it on top of an old tile floor. How about putting down some wonderboard, then tiling over?

One of the sales assoc. told me about it. He also steered me to the right "grout" /mastic that I could use. Not sure if it was the recommended product for the job but wife went shopping Stuck up the roll and stuck on the backsplash tiles. We had to go away for a while so in about 2 weeks when I came back some of the tile had not stuck to the roll. Just pressed it back in place put the recommend "grout/glue and its been up for two years. And looks great. It doesnt get much water near it but some near the sink, and never have had a problem used glass tile that I saw in a different store. Hard to find Green. I planning to put a bigger back splash at my new place and Im planning on using this system again. I really liked how well it turned out.

Don’t press it on too hard when you initially put it against the wall. Once it is on, trim it up and then press it hard against the wall. Don’t double it up. It gets too thick that way. It appears to be working well. I guess time will tell. But with the additional support from the grout and caulk, I think it will be fine. Just keep it clean during the application.

The idea sounded good at the time of purchase. The directions were followed to the letter, even watched a youtube video. Put the tiles up one day and the next morning half of them came right off the wall. I contacted the manufacturer and his advice was "The way you fix this is you can use glass tile premium thin set mortar, spread the mortar directly over the Simple Mat. Or you can use a blow dryer or heat gun to pull the Simple Mat off the wall." Seriously? Put thin set mortar over the mat? What's the point of the mat then? They did not offer a refund or anything. It's impossible to return it since it's stuck to the wall. This was a total waste of money and especially our time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total and complete waste of money I saw this product on This Old House and have a lot of small areas to tile, so I splurged and spent $50 on the big roll. I read and followed all the directions. It went on beautifully, but I had to wait two days to grout because I had a few cuts of tile to make. The instructions said that the product gets stronger with time, so I didn’t worry. Bad, bad, bad. The tiles started falling off within a day. I tried re applying the tile and pressing them hard into the product (again). Nope. They still kept falling off. I tried to return it, but Home Depot said that since I opened and tried it, I couldn’t. They said it would have to be “defective”. I said “If the product doesn’t work then isn’t that considered defective?”. He said no, if they can’t re-sell it I can’t return it. Bad form Home Depot. Very dissapointed. Don’t waste your money.

I came home today to grout half the tiles had already fallen off the wall waste of time and money!

I have installed my Mosaic tile twice and both times it held for about 12 hours before my tiles started falling. I am going to by myself thinset next week and return whats left. Maybe some people have had good luck with this product but the risk is to great! Save your money!

If your back splash is going to be located over a cooktop in close proximity to direct heat than I would not recommend this product. I have had people in this situation tell me that the tiles started to come off when they got hot.

If not avoid this product or be prepared to get extremely frustrated and angry when tiles don’t sit right or fall off the wall. Thin set is messy and a pain but not as much as this stuff it the wall has any bumps, etc.
