Asked by Steve March 14, 2020

Answers

Hi, Steve! We currently do not offer customized designs of our Metro Hex Matte White. Both the black and white versions of our Metro Hex Matte Tile can be purchased, removed from the mesh backing and individually arranged to create any personalized design preference, similar to that shown in our “retro” product image. You can find our coordinating Metro Hex Matte Black here https://thd.co/2QpNdrH. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

What is the C.O.F. of this product? Does it depend on the grout?

Asked by Robert January 25, 2020
1
Answer

Hi, Robert! The C.O.F rating of our Metro Hex Matte White with Black Dot is 0.60 which means it is ADA compliant for slip resistance. Grout lines help contribute to improving the overall slip resistance but are not a factor of the C.O.F. measurement. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is it non slip for a shower floor, because I really don't want to have to use a shower mat?

Asked by Mbf0698 January 12, 2020

Answers

I wouldn't call it non slip and probably would not use on a shower floor. Looks great on the bathroom floor, however.

Were you or your contractor able to get the tile level? Unfortunately, our contractor could not get it level.

Answers

You first have to start by making sure that the sub-floor is level. If it isn’t level or has ripples, say from a poured concrete pad, it will make it very difficult to install this small tile level. Assuming thy sub-floor is level, you then have to us a very small toothed trowel. I think I used a 1/8” toothed trowel. When the tile is installed, you have to press it down which will cause the thinset to squeeze out and into the joints, which require cleaning as you go. I also use a level to insure it is flat. I have found any small tile that is attached to a backer mesh has to be installed mindfully. I installed this tile onto a custom concrete shower floor that I poured (16 square feet) and it turned out great, at least, my client is happy. I don’t know that I would have installed it in a large area as this thin mosaic mesh tile will show every imperfection from the sub-floor. Yes, it would look wavy.

Can this tile be used on a shower floor? Will it prevent slipping?

Asked by Carmen February 19, 2019
3
Answers

It can be used on a shower base but you’ll have a ton of grout to clean. I wouldn’t say it will stop slipping. You’d be best getting a tile with a grit surface. This won’t be a slick tile but won’t be slip preventing. It’s probably somewhere in the middle mostly causes by the grout.

When will this be back in stock?

Asked by Bjbj August 28, 2018
1
Answer

Hi BJBJ, Our Metro Hex Matte White with Black Dot is currently in-stock and available for purchase! If you are ordering additional material, we want to let you know that you may experience issues with dye lot and caliber consistency. When tile is manufactured at different times, the color and size may vary slightly. We always encourage ordering 15% overage for patterned tiles to account for cutting, future repairs, dye lot and caliber consistency, as we cannot guarantee dye lots and caliber over multiple orders. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

sanded or unsanded grout?

Asked by Ryan May 8, 2018
2
Answers

Hi Ryan, The location of your installation will help dictate what type of grout you should use. Our Metro Hex Matte White with Black Dot should have 1/8” grout joints, and the space between each mosaic piece should be approximately 1/8” as well. When grout joints are going to be 1/8”, we encourage using unsanded grout on the wall and sanded grout on the floor. If you do use sanded grout, we encourage you to be gentle with the surface of the tile so it does not scratch the finish. Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Perfect
We wanted a tile that fit the age and style of our home. This tile is the perfect vintage look. The install was easy but need to be sure squares are going in the same direction for the pattern. We used dark gray grout. Love the look.

We used the merola metro hex and metro square in white and green to create our new bathroom floor. We love it! Tile was easy to work with and cut and we're very pleased with the final product. I do wish there was a gloss finish option with these tiles.

This tile looks exactly as pictured and is incredibly beautiful when installed!! The only reason for 4 stars vs 5 stars - is several (most) of the tiles would pop off the backing when cut with a tile saw. We would purchase again, just add in extra time for this issue.

The metro hex snowflake and metro black were great, but the metro hex white was not. The white tiles did not match up to the snowflake and black due to a manufacturing error. The individual tiles were spaced too close together and the individual tiles were thicker making them completing incompatible with the snowflake and black hex. Merola customer service was very helpful and sent me more tile. I made a new design using the snowflake tile, but then with extra snowflake tile sent by Merola, I made more plain white tile. It was not difficult to do, but it was a little tedious. The problem with the white hex did delay my project for about 4 days, but other than that the solutions we came up with worked and my floor looks amazing!

This product is absolutely gorgeous. I had a very specific idea in my mind for my bathroom and this tile was the foundation for that creation. It came out exactly as I had envisioned it would, stunning! The floor lays very nicely whether you are installing by the 10 1/4" x11 3/4" sheets or one by one with individual hexagons--we did both--very easy to work with and it's very impressive when laid out. I cut out individual hexagons to make my own custom design in the floor because pre made designs of this type were a bit busy for my small bathroom; I figured making my own design would allow me to calibrate the black to white ratio to my personal liking. I could not be happier with the result. My bathroom is striking to all who see it; I have gotten countless compliments from the moment it was done. It cleans up easily, looks amazing, is very nicely priced... such a small price for such a big result! I highly recommend this product without hesitation.

Installed in a small bathroom. I wanted a touch of accent in an otherwise mainly white tiled room. The flex sheet of small tiles makes working around things so easy. Going with black grout (on the floor) - can't wait for the finished result

This tile was a perfect choice for our downstairs guest bathroom in our 1902 house. The look was exactly what we wanted, and the gray grout gives just the right amount of contrast without being washed out (white grout) or too busy (black grout). The tile was relatively easy to work with - mosaic tile is more fussy than most, but this was no worse than any other, and the finished results were just what we wanted. We had the product shipped directly to the store for pick-up, and that worked without a hitch.
