Capture the beauty of authentic, traditional cement tiles with the Merola Tile Cemento Arte Snowcap Encaustic 8 in. x 8 in. Cement Handmade Floor and Wall Tile. These tiles are constructed of cement, offering a partial through-body coloring. Each tile is hand-crafted by taking a 1 in. cement base, pouring color into a mold, pressing the color with a hydraulic press and then allowing it to cure for a number of days. The result is a completely one of a kind look that may produce natural variations or chips, which are characteristics of true cement tile. This design is inspired by our encaustic look series, Arte, and features snow white and charcoal hues. These durable tiles can be used in a variety of interior settings. Be sure to pair these with other tiles in the coordinating Cemento series for a unique look. It is necessary that you seal your cement tiles. Please follow the link for the cement tile sealing guide found to the right of this text for information. Tile is the better choice for your space. This tile is made from natural ingredients, making it a healthy choice as it is free from allergens, VOCs, formaldehyde and PVC.

Questions & Answers

6Questions10Answers

Does this tile have to be sealed after installation to prevent wear and staining?

Asked by SS June 26, 2020
1
Answer

Hi! Yes, installations of our Cemento Arte Snowcap should be sealed before grouting, 90 days after installation and resealed once a year. Please consult tile sealant instructions provided by the manufacturer before using tile sealants. If you have any further questions please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is this the price per tile or per square foot?

Asked by Cyndie September 1, 2019

Answers

Per square foot. It’s no a cheap floor, but it’s really a stunning look once it’s installed!

Can acid be applied to this tile to clean up after installation?

Asked by SueD May 2, 2019
1
Answer

Hi, SueD! No, we do not recommend using an acid-based cleaning solution on our Cemento Arte Snowcap as it can wear away at the sealer and potentially damage the surface. To clean this tile after installation and thereafter, simply use a mixture of warm water and soap. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Can this be used for shower floors?

Asked by Jill January 31, 2019
2
Answers

No, the tile is not suitable for use in a shower floor.

Is this item really $10 per TILE, or is it $10 for a case of tiles!?!?

Asked by Kate June 5, 2018

Does this tile need to be sealed if used behind a cooktop? Will it stain?

Asked by KitchenDesigner May 26, 2018
1
Answer

Hi KitchenDesigner, It is recommended that you seal your cement tile after installation and follow up with another coat of sealer every year. Sealing the tile before grouting can help prevent the grout from staining, but it is still very important to clean the wet grout as you go for the best results. Sealing after installation can also help seal the grout, prolonging the life of the grout as well. To the right of the “Product Overview” section, there is a section called “Info & Guides”. If you click the “Product Brochure” option, this will open a cement tile sealing guide. If you choose to go down this route, we would recommend testing the sealer on scrap prior to sealing the whole installation, as it could alter the appearance of the tile. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Hi TreDesigns,

We’re glad to hear that our Cemento Arte Slate worked out for your installation, your feature wall looks grand! This pattern is great at attracting attention with its bold design, but it doesn’t take away from the room as a whole, but rather complements the varying elements that are placed in this room. Our goal is to provide only the best for our customers, and we’re so happy this worked out for you. Thank you for the feedback!

I have this tile in my hallway and love it. However, we brought more to go in our half bath and it was a disaster! It was installed poorly as it is hard to cut and the dark grout we chose stained the tile. We had to rip out $1,000.00 worth of tile and start again with a different cheaper tile. This is not a tile for beginners or inexperienced contractors as we learned to our cost. I’m very disappointed as I love it in my hallway. If you decide to use this tile be sure to have an experienced licensed contractor do the work.

It looks beautiful in my hall bathroom. Can’t comment on durability or ease of care, as it was just installed. However, it’s as stunning as I thought it would be!
