A: HI Luis! Thank you for your question! This tile is not recommended for outdoor use as it is not frost resistant. The tile's C.O.F. is less than or equal to .5 is considered to have a marginally low skid resistance. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 800-963-7652 and we will be happy to assist you! Have a great day! -Stephanie C
A: Hi! The white in our Checker isn’t a true white, but we wouldn’t call this a cream toned white either. The white glaze has a slightly more cool-grey tone to it. Computer monitors have a tendency to portray colors either too warm or too cool in terms of tone. This makes judging whether the tile will suit your needs a bit more difficult. If you would like to determine if this is right for you, we offer samples! Please be aware that samples come adhered to 6”x6” sample cards which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole pattern. To be able to see the whole pattern, we recommend ordering a case. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold (in this situation, a case). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!
A: There is a 16th of an inch bead that separates the black and white squares! It is about a16th of an inch deep. Certainly not the traditional spacing for grout!
A: Yes, we were able to grout between each square with out a problem. We used a black/charcoal grout that matched up with the black squares. The result was a great look for our 1920s beach cottage that has received numerous compliments.
A: Hi! The pre scored grout lines may be grouted with any grout color you prefer and will completely cover the natural body of the tile once properly installed. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.
A: Hi! Our Checker tile is not hard to keep clean and like all of our products, is rather easy to maintain. The glazed surface of this product makes it resistant to staining and helps prevent grime buildup. Aside from soap and water, we also recommend using a neutral, non-acidic cleaner that is safe for everyday cleaning. A product that would fit into this category would be the Custom Building Products Grout and Tile Cleaner, which can found at the following link https://thd.co/2TMZvKx. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.
