Q:I purchased the black granite 12x12 tiles through Home Depot for the floor of my entry, kitchen, and bathroom. What underlayment/subfloor and notch trowel is recommended? Thank you.
by|Apr 30, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We recommend opting for a sturdy and moisture-resistant subfloor, such as cement backer board or an uncoupling membrane like Schluter DITRA. These choices offer stability and help mitigate potential issues like cracking or shifting. As for the notch trowel, a 1/4 inch square-notch trowel is typically the ideal choice. This size ensures proper mortar coverage beneath the tiles, fostering strong adhesion while reducing the risk of air pockets. However, we always recommend that it is best practice to check with a professional installer when seeking personalized guidance on choosing the right underlayment and trowel size for your specific application.

          I bought them in the paste and liked the results. However, this time around all the corners are knocked off. I'll be returning this box.

          I contacted the title company that shipped the last box that had broken tiles. They would only ship replacement tiles if I paid for them. They said the new shipment would be carefully packed this time what a joke.

          Still laying tiles but one full box out of 3 I opened had all broken corners on the same corner. Definitely damaged while shipping because the pieces are in the box. Hopefully the rest of the boxes are ok so I’ll use these broken ones for cuts. Damaged tiles aside, they’re great tiles.

          Ubatuba 12" Granite installation went well
          I installed this granite on a bar counter and backsplash. 24" deep by 11' feet long. Also cut 4" backsplash. I used a polishing buffer with a polishing kit I bought on line with 5 pads ranging in grit up to 3200 for the final buff. I worked with water running from a hose, not recommended unless you are super careful, and the pads starting at 50 grit. I polished all the exposed edges and then installed it. I had to cut around the sink a very thin strip and grind the edges.

            Stone Should Come From The Same Supplier
            Different packaging suggests that my stone came from two different suppliers and quarries. Dramatically different stone colors in the two different types of boxes and I got 3 broken tiles, too. All for the low price of $900... Unhappy customer here.

              Good quality tiles delivered without damage
              The tiles are HEAVY, about 60 pounds with 10 per box. They were packed well and look nice in my bathroom with the recommended charcoal grout. I did have to purchase the threshold online at another establishment located in NJ, as Home Depot does not carry matching thresholds. Luckily it was a perfect match. I only wish the store had tile samples that I could actually look at, which is why I originally went there in person. I did order samples for my 2 choices (it was between this and the black galaxy). I got this one sight unseen because it was listed as a best seller, and the samples arrived after my tiles.

                Wrong color? It’s fine.
                First off I liked the stone fine. I am very curious if they sent the wrong color. The boxes weren’t marked. What I ordered appeared brown on my computer screen. What I got was green. It looked good enough to me and has been installed. I didn’t want to mess with exchanging them. Overall I am happy.

                bad Experience beware!!
                Let’s start from the beginning.. once upon a time there was this customer you see and he need ten cases so he ordered online and it was pretty straight forward as he picked them up from store .. But then one day disaster struck as he was in the middle of finishing up ..it just happened that so far 3 case in counting are bent on the corners creating a gap in the middle .. when I even went all out on the leveling system!!! Why must this store end like this !!!

                  Engraving on Granite Tiles.
                  I bought this tile in order to do some custom CNC engravings/ etchings on granite. Very impressed with the quality of these particular tiles. I could barely take photos of it when I was finished because of the highly polished surface of these things. They are like mirrors! One thing to note to others. They are ridiculously heavy, which is a good thing in my opinion. Great quality and would definitely buy again.
