Edge Flooring


Has anyone used the Edge Flooring cermaic tile? I have laid it in my kitchen and I am not very happy. Many of the tiles have cracked and I did lay it according to the manufactures guidelines.

It's new, so still some bugs.
Some people say the grout lines are not as perfect as a pro job.

If I may correct the spelling of CERMAIC to CERAMIC.
Just a slip of the old finger or mind

Edge Flooring


I laid Edge tile in my kitchen and entrance hallway about a year ago. Today I look at it with complete disgust. It was a total waste of money. At the time it seemed like a great idea, mostly for the time savings. I had just finished tiling a bathroom, with real tile, which still looks great, but took a long time to do. The kitchen and hallway were a bigger project and edge's claim for time savings was true. The price was more than I would have spent with standard tile. I found the transition strips to be junk. My wife wanted to use them as basemolding, which we did, as Edge does advertise they can be used for this--don't do this. I want to rip it all off and install real wood. I've had many of the tiles crack, and the grout is horrible and impossible to clean or seal. Not to mention the cost of new grout, and the fact that most of it won't come out of the can, although I heard they do have a new system. I did a large area with this tile, I've worked with several different types of flooring, including standard ceramic tile, I did follow their directions and my recommendation is to not use this product. I wish I could get the 1000 dollars I have tied up in this floor back. I suppose I'll live with it a little longer until I can tear it out and put REAL tile in that won't crack and can be cleaned.

DITTO! Your story is just like mine, I put real tile in my bathroom, but decided to use the Edge product in my kitchen because of the time issue. Thanks for your comments.

Nothing like the real thing. A perfect example of looks not being everything.

Is that what you tell yourself when you look in the mirror every morning Don? :D

(Sorry, I couldn't resist an opening like that!)

That's something I could never admit out loud. It's written on my mirror.

Another forum, which I won't name, has about 200 posts of people who used "edge" and had the same terrible results as some of you have had. Alot of them say that they went back to Lowe's, complained and got their money back, no questions asked, no need to tear it up and show them "proof". It's as if they know their product is junk and are doing the honorable thing and refunding for materials. HOWEVER, they still sell the edge tile, as far as I know, and I haven't heard anyone say they got anything for time, trouble, labor, etc.

Good luck getting the mfg to take any responsibility. I have been fighting with them for almost six months now. I finally threatened to take the issue to our local TV stations that have investigative segments that deal with problems such as these. Only then, did I get someone from Edge to contact me. Long story short, they kept looking, looking and looking for something to void the warranty; incorrect underlayment - warranty voided. Now my local store has to eat $2K to get me a replacement floor!

What really scares me is that this product is being used on many of the home improvement shows on HGTV and is being touted as the best thing since sliced bread - it's not. buyer beware!

My neighbor used edge tiles and had a bad experience. He let me know a week after laying that it had been a huge mistake. He went ahead and changed to real tiles.

Wonder what "EdgeMan" has to say about all this? Haven't heard from him for a while... If you missed that previous thread, search for "Edge Flooringwhat the heck". It was earlier this month...

I have been in the flooring business for 35 years and I have installed OVER 25,000 sqft in the last 3 years of the edge product with only 1 complaint that was easily fixed. This Product is Great, but you MUST install it correctly.
I also inspect floors and I did inspect 14 different complaints on edge flooring, all of the complaints were due to installation errors & water problems. I am sure that if I inspected the floors that are inquestion above it would be the same issue.

People may want to have a lawsuit but it wouldn't change the fact that the person installed the floor incorrectly.
