Q:Our contractor installed the tiles but a few of them are now showing small lines cracks. Do you have any suggestion to address that issue? (Repair kit, etc…)
by|May 15, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  If you've noticed small cracks in some of the tiles after installation, it's crucial to act promptly to prevent further damage. Firstly, reach out to the contractor for insights and potential remedies. Additionally, inspect the area for underlying issues such as subfloor preparation or structural movement. Consider installing expansion joints to reduce stress on the tiles. Minor cracks may be addressed with a porcelain tile repair kit. However, for extensive damage or uncertainty, consulting a professional tile installer or structural engineer is advisable for proper assessment and repair recommendations.

    Q:Hi, interested in Sapheda Riptide Satin tile for the walls inside a shower. Is this tile good for that purpose? Also, wondering what people do if this style of tile is on the shower wall and you have to attach the face plate of the shower valve.
    by|Mar 17, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes, this ceramic Sapheda Riptide Satin tile is suitable for shower wall use and is commonly used in shower settings. It works well in both wet and dry conditions, whether you're using it at home or in a business place. To attach the faceplate of the shower valve, people typically use specialized tile adhesive or silicone caulking to ensure a secure and waterproof seal. However, we always recommend that it is best practice to check with a professional installer when seeking personalized guidance on the sustainability of materials in a specific application.

      Q:Many purchasers are using these for showers, however they are listed as ceramic rather than porcelain, and porcelain is usually recommended over ceramic for wet areas. Is it safe to use these for a shower? Won't they absorb too much water?

          Only about 2-3 tiles were good per box. The rest were chipped, cracked or the finish worn off.

          Broken scratched tile
          Ordered these tiles online because of the movement with the waves. I had the tiles delivered to the house. This is how they arrived. Broken chipped pieces and scratched. There was no padding in between the tiles to protect them from being scratched. Super disappointed. We will be returning all six boxes.

              The width of the tile are not the same
              I loved the look. Put the first box of tile on the wall and it looked good. Started using the second box and noticed the grout seems were off. The tile widths were not the same. This cost me time and money because I had to tear down what tile was already on the wall but had to replace the drywall behind it and repaint the drywall with the redgard.

                We hung the tiles in a half brick pattern vertically. Looks beautiful installed, but was quite brittle to work with, and we lost a few with jaggy edges when making cuts. It was also thinner than the quarry tiles that were up previously, which complicates the cement caulk left on the bathtub edge from the old tile because it didn’t stick out as far. I would say use with caution even with an experienced installer.

                Great Value
                Affordable Tile… I did a stacked pattern versus a brick pattern … used white grout … came out nice

                  Very clean and unique design
                  We absolutely love this look for our bathroom. The smaller size tiles, we’re using it as our kitchen backsplash. It brings everything together. I love it. It’s clean but not a sterile look.

                    Look carefully for defects
                    Some tiles were different in sizes so had to replace a box worth of times during my bathroom project. Tiles look good in general but keep an eye for size and defects.
