Cryntel Romastone flooring- Reviews?


I'd only have them in our small kitchen, and the wife always has throw rugs everywhere, so cool.
I mean ...warm... or something....

Cryntel Romastone flooring- Reviews?


Just an update on my cryntel romastone install. Installed 240sq ft back in Nov 09 (earlier posts). The floor has held up very well. Last summer I applied several coats of Armstrong Shine Keeper Floor finish. It is not a sealer. I wanted a little more sheen to the surface. I love it and I think it seems to add a little protection. Clean up is easy with just a damp mop, water. The grout is holding up well and seems to be stain-resistant so far. Not cold underfoot.

Cryntel Romastone flooring- Reviews?


We just installed RomaStone in our master bathroom and we couldn't be happier! It is absolutely beautiful and looks very much like natural stone. We did take up the old vinyl flooring because the people at Lowe's suggested that we either do that or use a float medium to smooth out the indentations in the pattern. They said eventually the new tile would take on the configuration of the bumps and grooves beneath it. Except for needing to scrape up some leftover glue, removing the flooring was not really hard. I noticed one "post" that suggested shopping around for grout, but the instructions included with the tile said to use ONLY the premixed epoxy grout. I did not have any problems with the sanded grout scratching the tile.

could you paint over the recommended grout with an oil based paint?

I used to install ceramic tiles in my rental properties for durability. But it is expensive to install. In addition, the grout lines inevitably become dirty and almost impossible to clean. Kinda ruin my investment.

Recently, I bought a few hundred sqft of Roma Stone 18" tiles on clearance. I intend to install them in a condo. I like the grout line look, but not sure if it is worth it. If my first priority is low maintenance and durability, does adding grout line compromise my priority?
