What does a 250 pound breaking strength suppose to mean? If a 250 pound man steps on the tile it might break?? Some large appliances weigh more than that. Also how do you clean it to maintain that shiny high sheen? It this meant to last a lifetime if properly maintained/cleaned?
Asked by: Anonymous
Good Morning, This tile has 250lb break strength, which is similar to most other ceramic floor tiles. This does not mean that if you place on object or person on the tile that weighs 250 lbs that it will break. This is found by a factory test that puts weight in one small point on the tile until the tile breaks. Installing this product on a proper subfloor will help further prevent breaking. We have had customers install this tile in their kitchens, bathrooms and entry ways, and they have all withstood everyday use. To clean and maintain this, we would recommend using warm soapy water and a clean, soft cloth. Do not use harsh chemicals or hard, stiff materials to clean these tiles. You can clean the grout lines with a stiff-bristled toothbrush to remove soap scum. Tile is one of the most durable materials that you can put in your home, with proper installation and maintenance including sealing and cleaning you can enjoy your tile for many years. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Can this tile be used inside the shower for the floor (base)? Also can it be used on the walls in a shower?
Asked by: DG
Hi DG, Our Elegance Luxe can be used on a shower floor, but keep in mind that this does not have a high slip resistance rating and does not meet the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Guidelines for slip resistance. If there are small children or elderly adults using this shower, you might want to choose a tile that has a higher slip resistance. If this is not an area for concern, the glazed surface is chemical resistant and approved for shower floor usage. This tile would be a great option for the walls of a shower! If this is an area of concern for you, we have a few suggestions within our Classico Bardiglio series. Our Classico Bardiglio Hexagon Light https://thd.co/2SqhLsu and our Classico Bardiglio Hexagon Dark https://thd.co/2StWFtj are great options that can be used together to create a similar color scheme. Both of these have a C.O.F. (Coefficient of Friction) rating of 0.6 to 0.79 which makes this compliant with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) guidelines for slip resistance. All C.O.F. means is how slip resistant a tile floor is; the higher the value, the more slip resistant the tile is. These also have a DCOF (Dynamic Coefficient of Friction) rating of 0.50. To be considered slip resistant for DCOF, a tile must meet or exceed the required rating of 0.42. Please keep in mind that although these tiles are within the same series, they do not come from the same dye lot (color) or caliber (size). As a result of this, the shades and size might not match up perfectly with each other. If you would like to determine if either of these tiles are 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 one 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!

How many tiles are in a case?

Asked by: Betty
Hi Betty, One case of our Elegance Luxe contains 5 tiles, which covers 11.25 square feet. You can find this and other applicable information in the “Product Overview” section and the “Specifications” section below! Please keep in mind that we encourage ordering 10% more than your calculated amount to assure that you order enough tile to account for cutting, future repairs and dye lot and caliber consistency. Also, it is always great to have a couple extra laying around the house in the event of a future project or damages down the road. If multiple orders are placed, there is a chance that you may experience issues with dye lot and caliber consistency. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Does Merola Elegance Luke tile need to be sealed prior to grouting as I have read polished porcelain tile should be sealed prior to grouting?
Asked by: John
Hi John, Sealing your tile is a matter of personal preference. Sealing the tile can help prolong the life of your installation, it can also help prevent the grout lines and tile from dirt buildup. This tile has a glazed finish, which will help prevent contaminants from staining the tile if cleaned up in a reasonable amount of time. Routine maintenance can also help prolong the life of your tile. If you would like, you could choose to seal the tile as an added layer of protection. Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials, and their Aqua Mix Penetrating Sealer http://thd.co/1TFzOUL is a great option for this item. Be sure to follow all directions on the packaging for the best results. We recommend testing the sealer on scrap prior to sealing the whole installation, as it could alter the appearance of the tile. 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. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!
