laying roman stone tile on concrete


EDIT: Note that the post below was written with the impression that the OP was referring to using an imported natural stone tile from Rome. This was an incorrect assumption. See below for more details.

More specifically? I'm going to assume you're asking what materials you'll need since it's incredibly vague.

You'll need to use a leveling compound if you have any waves in the floor. Otherwise, you should be able to lay them with a modified thinset, spacers, grout and sealant.

Tools are a whole different story.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Romanstone is a peel and stick vinyl tile exclusive to Lowes.

Ah,----For peal and stick----paint on a 'bond enhanser' after vacuuming the concrete--that stuff will take care of any dust and make the tiles stick well.

An angle grinder is handy to have if there are any ridges or high trowel marks in the concrete.

There's apparently an interlocking paver brand by the name Romanstone as well. :S
