Cryntel Romastone flooring- Reviews?


Hi All,

I just saw Cryntel Romastone vinyl self stick tiles at Lowe's and it looks very nice.

You can either butt the tiles up to each other or use an acrylic grout for a authentic tile look.

Has anyone ever used it?

Just started a project with it. The subfloor had old vinyl 12x12's, some glue is still on the subfloor and we are having trouble getting the corners to stick, have you heard any other feedback?

No I have not had any other feedback. Please let me know how it turns out. Maybe you can send me a picture.

Are you grouting or butting them together?

I also liked the look of the romastone tile I saw at Lowes. Looked high and low for info on the product- not much out there. FLooring people at Lowes didn't have much experience with it and the Cryntel website had nil info. But with a leap of faith I bought it and crossed my fingers. A few weeks ago I redid about 240 sf of kitchen. Installed it over my vinyl sheet flooring which was in good shape except for a few places along wall that were dried and curling up. I glued down those areas as best I could and hoped that my baseboards once down would help hold the curl down. The Cryntel helpline told me I did not need to use any embossing leveler. I spaced the tiles out for grouting and went about peeling and sticking. The tiles scored easily with a bit of pressure with a straight edge and utility knife. Then I used the grout product sold at Lowes specifically for this tile..rechecked with helpline to make sure it would be good since it was not the product they recommended (I am new at all this and can be meticulous). I grouted. The stuff sets fast and can be walked on after 5 hours. I put baseboards back on..used a clear silicone caulk under baseboards. Looks great. Crossing my fingers!

do you think you could send me pictures?

I also called the helpline to see if I could install over vinyl without any leveler and they said that there is no issue.

Wow they look great.

Can you post a pic of where the tiles meet another surface? For example your rug?

Again, great job.

Where this butted to wood floor I could not remove existing threshold so tiled as close as possible and carefully grouted small space between tile and threshold. Came out better than I thought it might. If the grout cracks over time I can just regrout that line.

Beige sand. But best to look at samples in all light situations. Color seems to look different from all angles.

Looks very nice - I am considering the Cryntel RomaStone Saturnia for a bathroom.
Can you please tell me what spacing you used between the tiles ?

Used very tight 1/8 inch spacers. Apparently the grout used won't work well with it any wider.

I did a bathroom with the 12" and looks great with 1/8" grout. Bought some 18" for a basement room but I don't like the acrylic grout color choices, I'm looking for dark brown. I wonder, since the floor is concrete, if I could use just regular sanded grout.

Sanded grout will scratch the tiles.
If you look around there are several brands of grout that have different colors & you should be able to find one to your liking.

Use ONLY the recommended grout.
