In search of Keyera Beige tiles (lowes)
 
I am searching all over for some Keyera Beige 13"x13" tiles that were sold at Lowes Home Improvement stores about 3 years ago. I talked with a flooring person in the store the other day and he stated that the manufacture (Surface Source) discontinued that color. Great:huh:. I kept a couple pieces but turns out I am 3 or 4 short of what I need to repair/replace an area that is damaged. Any idea what a person can do about this? Is there any good places the may still have some random pieces? I would pay pretty good at this point to get what I need.
Thanks!

You could try to pop those pieces you need off of your floor from a hidden spot, i.e. a closet. Or depending where the damage is you can add decorative inlays into it to take up the extra space

Keep this post going--that was a popular tile--some one here might see this and respond.

In the mean time go to introductions and say hello--then greet 18 others--you need 20 posts to activate PMs.

Popping is not an option. I tried my best to save some of the larger pieces to cut to fit in other spots that need replaced. That didn't work. I got millions of small pieces :no: and no "pops"

I am replacing a couple broken ones that are a result of the concrete pad settling. I know there is a chance of them breaking again as the seasons change but I need to fix these ones now in order to prepare the place to rent. Thanks

Look on Creigs list under materails,
Place an ad in the wanted section. It's free.
Go to your local Restore. It's where donated materials are sold to raise money for Habitate for Humanity.
I just did a Google search on "Keyera Beige tiles and dozens of hits came up.

Who said that? Do you realize it's ceramic tiles?

If that doesn't work try Craig's List. :whistling2: What the hay, it's free, never know.

This is actually the only time buying from a large box store might come in handy. Although it was discontinued, (you should have bought several extra boxes for repairs), They can help you. Talk to the store manager and have them do an "all locations" search. They can do that with computers and all. They can search their odd-lots inventory then transfer what you need to your store. This can take several weeks though.

Have some Keyrera beige tile for u?
 
Just brought a home we are redoing our basement and found about 40 Surface Source Keyera Beige tiles.
We were going to use them then found out we did not have enough for the job.
We Live in Delaware, you can pick them up or I can ship them out for you if you pay the shipping cost?
Not sure it is going to be cost effective to ship? but if you need them I have them?

If you are in no hurry, ground is not terribly expensive. Common carrier would be really cheap.

Habitat Restores are great places to visit and patronize. Not to take away from others trying to make a go of it but the material has already been purchased and paid for.

A couple years ago I was passing through a Restore and found drop dead gorgeous Italian tile leftover from a large job and perfect for a project a friend was working on with enough left over for repairs. The tiles cost a fraction of what they would have.

A Pier One was redoing lighting and I got a couple hundred really nice track lights and bulbs perfect for the friend's same project for like $1.50 each. Nice fixtures. Not cheap box store plastic ones.

The one near me often had unopened five-ers of primer and such too.

And it goes to a good cause! T

If you're willing to ship to California, I'm definitely in need of some Keyera tiles too!

Hello,
We are redoing our mudroom and are short of a few tiles (Keyera beige). Do you still have them? please let me know, thank you.
