Questions & Answers

Is this tile good for non slip areas in the bathroom ?

Asked by Slip July 19, 2020
1
Answer

Yes, our Traffic Hex Combi is suitable for bathroom floor installations as it is slip-resistant and highly-durable. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Can this tile be installed over existing vinyl floor?

Asked by Nadi February 4, 2020
2
Answers

Hi! We would not recommend installing this product over pre-existing vinyl floor. The main issue is that the integrity of your second installation would depend on the previous installation. If any issues arise with the original installation, this will subsequently damage the new installation. Vinyl is also susceptible to mold growth which would be difficult to detect or remedy with tile installed over it. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Does this line of tiles come in smaller sizes?

Asked by nono September 6, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Nono, Unfortunately, we do not offer our Traffic Hex Dark in a smaller size. We offer a mosaic that has a similar look and feel to it in a smaller format that might work for your installation, our Metro Super Hex Matte Black https://thd.co/2Crgf5L. Please be aware that Metro has a slightly lower PEI rating than Traffic and is not as thick. In regards to C.O.F. (Coefficient of Friction) ratings, both of these tiles have a rating of 0.6 and 0.79. When the C.O.F. rating is higher, it means that it’s more slip resistant. Receiving this C.O.F. rating also makes these tiles compliant with the ADA Guidelines! 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!

Why does the dark gray version of this tile have a lower durability rating than the light gray an...

Asked by LosAngeles June 5, 2018
1
Answer

Hi WellResearchedDIYer, The PEI rating is a universal scale set by the Porcelain Enamel Institute in regards to the surface abrasion resistance of tile. Darker colored tiles generally have a lower PEI rating than lighter colored tiles as they will begin to show wear quicker than lighter colored tiles. It’s not that darker colored tiles are more susceptible to wear, it’s just that the wear on a darker colored tile is more easily seen when compared to a lighter colored tile. The way I like to think of it is looking at a black car versus a white car. Any imperfections on a black car is more easily noticed when you compare the same imperfections on a white car. Hopefully this analogy helps with the explanation provided. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Is this suitable for a bathroom floor or shower surround?

Asked by Mamacakes June 4, 2018
2
Answers

Hi Mamacakes, Yes, our Traffic Hex 3D Grey would be a great option for a bathroom floor! This tile has 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. 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).

Answers

Hi Mom, Unfortunately, we do not carry our Traffic Hex Grey in stores. If you’re looking mainly for a color comparison, we would recommend ordering samples. Please be aware that samples come adhered to 4.5”x5” sample cards which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole tile. To be able to see the whole tile, 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). Please feel free to contact our Customer Service department at (800)-963-7652 and we can walk you through the process of ordering samples. Hope this helps!

Does this tile need to be sealed? If so, what sealer do you recommend.

Asked by Bee August 31, 2017
2
Answers

Hi Bee, While it is not necessary to seal this tile, it could act as another layer of protection for your installation. 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 reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

This tile is seriously amazing. We installed it in our mudroom/laundry room as a backsplash for the laundry area about one month ago. The color reads more charcoal and less green in person but definitely has green undertones. It’s the richest looking tile with gorgeous color variation and veining. The hex shape is really special and just stunning. I can’t tell you how much we love this tile. Far exceeded our expectations.

Hexagonal Tile
We wanted a tile for a half bath that was not in the "beige" color palate. This silver/gray hexagonal tile was what we needed. It was ordered and shipped to store for free pickup. Arrived when expected, very well packed, no broken tiles. The color is consistent, installed without problems. Attached picture of room still in progress.
