Questions & Answers

What color grout is used in the photos? Light Grey or snow white?

Asked by Remodeler September 26, 2019
1
Answer

Hi! We are uncertain of which image you are referring to specifically, however for our Peak Hex Nero we recommend Custom Building Products grout color #60 Charcoal. It is important to note that grout color is a personal preference and can greatly impact the overall look of an installation. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is the white part of this tile the exact same offwhite shade as Aster Hex Blanco that I can see in my local HD store?

Asked by MSMN January 11, 2019
1
Answer

Hi MSMN, Both our Peak Hex Nero and our Aster Hex Blanco come from the same factory, so they will have very similar color tones in them. However, just because these are from the same factory, doesn’t mean that the shades of color will match up perfectly with each other. Tile has different dye lots and calibers, and combining two different dye lots and calibers together may result in a mismatch in coloration between two tiles, and a very slight mismatch in size. Please note that we do not offer our Aster Hex Blanco or our Peak Hex Nero in HD stores. If you would like to determine if this tile 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 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!

Is this tile appropriate for a shower floor? I want to use it in my entire bathroom and carry it...

Asked by MSMN January 9, 2019

Answer

Hi MSMN, Yes, our Peak Hex Nero is a great option for a shower floor! This encaustic look field tile has a glazed, matte finish which would make it perfect for this type of installation. If the background construction is waterproofed properly, this tile would be a great choice for a shower floor. This tile has a DCOF (Dynamic Coefficient of Friction) rating of 0.42. To be considered slip resistant for DCOF, a tile must meet or exceed the required rating of 0.42. Sealing our Peak Hex Nero is a matter of personal preference. Sealing the tile can help prevent the grout lines and tile from dirt buildup, and can help make cleaning a breeze! 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 have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Is it possible to get a sample of this tile? I can't find a sample listing for it.

Does the meaning of encaustic in the last reply definitely apply to this tile? Could Merola answ...

Asked by TOHDeb November 28, 2018
1
Answer

Hi TOHDeb, If a tile is encaustic, then it means that it was made with different colors of clay instead of having a glazed pattern on-top of the ceramic base. When a tile is an encaustic look tile, such as our Peak Hex Nero, this means that the pattern is glazed on-top of the ceramic base to give the look it the look of an encaustic tile at a fraction of the cost. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Does "encaustic" mean that the tile is dyed through? Or is the pattern applied on top? Thanks!

This is a very high quality Spanish tile. The six sided hexagon shape, with one white side gives you many different installation options, from an alternating pattern, lines, parallelogram, peaks, triangles, or just random. The sides are perfectly symmetric, and the exact same size. The black color is more of a faded black/ charcoal, and the white color is a bright white. The tiles come well packaged, with a little swirl of easily removable glue to hold the stack together so there are no scratches or chipped corners. This looks good with either a dark grout or a contrasting light grout. It is not slippery when wet, and is very strong and resistant to scratching.
