After spending months online researching various flooring products, reading countless reviews, and visiting numerous retailers, we decided to go with the black marble stone flex tiles in our new home. So far, overall, we couldn't be happier with the ultramodern appearance, ease of installation and clean ability. Three weeks after placing our order via telephone with A.J., our 72 cases of tile arrived via truck, in stellar packaging, on pallets, for easy handling and stackability in our garage. Per instructions, we acclimated the tile to our home's temperature. The tiles installed easily, clicking together with a rubber mallet or simply by stepping on them. We have a slab home, no basement, just concrete floors. Our concrete crew did a great job of leveling, so the tile didn't need any filler prior to placement. Using a straight edge and utility knife, we creased the tile; folded it back and forth a bit; and installed it. In order to make the complicated cuts, we marked the tiles with an ink pen. Wet wipes erased all traces of the marks. One tip: the warmer the tile, the easier it cuts. The tile's warm and soft underfoot, noise absorbent and doesn't sound hollow or click clack when walked on. As for the tile's durability, only time will tell, but so far...A+ on all accounts!
