Questions & Answers

Can i use this stuff to install my mosaic kitchen backsplash.

Asked by: Vinnie
as always, read instructions on label. And ask your Home Depot tile person if this product will work on the "mosaic" tile that you choose. Size ,color and shape can make a difference in the mortar you use.

Is it good to use this to tape cement board

Asked by: kb123
This is what I used for smoothing a previous (sloppy) job. For the taped section, I moistened it very slightly and it worked fine. I only wish I had a "before" pix. Dries well, little to no cracking on thick spots.

I used a square notched trowel with 1/4" notches which up till now has worked for me both on the wall and setting floor tile. It floats large tile nicely and has been holding well.

SimpleSet White 1 Gal. Pre-Mixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 126.

I am a professional installer and on my first use on a small bathroom floor (on cement board) took 3 days to cure for grout. After speaking with the so called HD specialist I was told it must have been a bad bucket. Took a credit and tried it again last week. Well I am 6 days past the install date and the tile still not fully set. When walking over the tile you hear the slight squishing sounds. This is in an air-conditioned and heated home, I even measured the home humidity at 46%. After doing more searching online I clearly fell a victim of a poor product with mislead HD employees. I had high hopes but its not worth the frustration of my customers. FYI: search about the product I have seen complaints with drying delays of as much as a month. I am once again returning the product NEVER to fall in the trap again.

It was easy to use, however, it has been a month and it is still off-gassing. I have to wear a respirator to be in the house at all, even though it was only used in a small half -bath (4 x 5 ft). My daughter had to move out of the house completely.. It seems that we also had the same difficulty as others report, with it not drying. We stayed off of the floor until it should have been hard, plus an additional week. Still, one of the tiles shifted just the tiniest bit, of course, right in the middle where it will not be covered up, so it made the careful work now not quite level and appearing shoddy. We cannot just lift the tile, as granite grout is very thin (1/8 in) so it would be hard on the tile, and the tiles break easy when handled. As far as we are concerned, this not only ruined the floor, we are now desperately trying to find some way to encapsulate the VOCs, as just ripping out the $6 per square foot tile that matches the sink & other decor would not get rid of what has seeped into the sheetrock, etc. This problem is so severe that if we can't fix it, we will have to sell our home to buyers that can tolerate it. Buyer beware, and never, ever trust regulations for a safe product. I've learned from this that even N Korea and Nigeria do more to protect their citizens than the US. (!) SDS sheet does report the VOCs, however this is so bad that I question their self-report and would love to see independent testing. They didn't report the dry time right, so why would the rest be legit? We purchased locally, so this will not show as a "verified purchase."

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY Believe everyone here. This stuff has not set and its been over a week with AC and high power fan blowing directly on it. Cannot believe this is being sold in HD let alone for $20 gallon.

I installed a 12 inch border of wall tiles around the perimeter of a room that is 10 X 12. After 5 1/2 weeks it is still outgassing like crazy. Will it ever stop? Why does HD sell this?

I used this to set 12 inch sheets of stone mosaic tiles that are 2 x 2 inches on a floor section. To my surprise and dismay, the mortar never dried. It's been 6 weeks or more. Now I'll have to remove and redo the whole job. I would never use this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great product, wildly inconsistent This stuff works great, it stays workable a little longer than regular thinset and it's easier to clean up because it remains flexible longer. On the down side, we used five various sized containers of the product for our bathroom tiling job (lots of tile) and the consistency and quality was all over the place. Some containers seemed brand new and worked great, while others seemed like they had dried out a little and were harder to work with.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cotradicting installation instructions I used this product 2 years ago when installing pebble tile in a half-bath (over concrete slab) and finer pebble tile (much lighter) around and over the mirror over primed drywall. What I liked about this product is how well it grabbed the pebble sheets. Having had good results with the half-bath decided to go with this same product for a small upstairs bath's floor. The tiles are porcelain (6X6) laid in an intricate "rug"-like design. I could only do so many rows before I would have to walk on set tiles. Decided to call their tech support and ask if it would be OK to walk on the tiles after 2 days of drying. The first thing I was told is that "there are better products for floor installations". But the product's instructions are for walls and floors. But again was told that "we don't use it on floors”. What?? Then who wrote the instructions printed on the bucket? No answer. Only when the tech heard that the tiles were installed over hardibacker that he said I should not have any problems provided that I use an oscillating fan and a space heater for an additional day or two. Why such discrepancy between printed and verbal instructions. The tech support was not friendly at all. So you decide.
