"The Best Flooring I've Ever Had"
I purchased my Cryntel Mirage Canyon Vinyl Tile about six months ago. It is a major improvement over what we previously had in our kitchen-I would describe it as the type of floor you see at a fast food restaurant-generic, brown tile. The grout was absolutely filthy, and no matter what I tried, I could not get it to come clean. I love so many things about my new tile, but the part I love the most is how easy it is to keep clean. I have four dogs who are constantly running in and out of the house every day. They track in mud, dirt, grass-if it is found outside, it has probably been on my floor. All I have to do is take a damp cloth to this tile, and it is good as new. I also love the look of it; only can you tell up close that it is not real stone. The Cryntel vinyl tile we have gave our kitchen a totally new, modern look and feel. We have not had any problems with it thus far, but when the time comes to replace it, I will definitely consider Cryntel brand vinyl tile again.

"Vinyl flooring “the wear factor”"
Vinyl flooring is okay. It last longer than some cheaper laminate flooring, but once it becomes damaged the entire tile or sheet needs replaced. It is not good to use in areas where there is heavy foot traffic; especially, where people wear heavy boots like steel toes. I used it in my bathrooms and kitchen it has held up really good and still looks nice. When they remodeled the office, I work at. They replaced the old flooring with vinyl tiles, it looked nice at first, but after the first week of wear from people walking in and out of the building. The surface on some of the vinyl tiles started to fray, rip, and loose the design on it. Vinyl floor is good for use in houses and other residential structures, but to use in a building where over one hundred people work, it just does not cut it.

"Romastone lasting and looking well"
Place about 240sf of Romastone peel and stick in kitchen about a year and a half ago. Went down easily and grouted it 1/8". It has held up wonderfully. And I still love how it looks like a stone tile. It is easy to clean with just a damp mop. the tiles and grout have been stain resistant thus far.

"RomaStone Groutable Vinyl Tiles provide real tile appearance at vinyl tile costs"
We installed Cryntel's RomaStone grout-able self-adhesive tiles approximately one month ago, and we couldn't be happier with the results. After grouting, the RomaStone tiles look so nice that several guests in our home (including a professional flooring installer) have mistaken them for real natural stone tiles.
RomaStone is designed to be installed either edge-to-edge like traditional self-adhesive vinyl tiles, or with 1/8" space for grouting. I highly recommend spacing and grouting the tiles, as it is the grout lines which provide much of the high quality finished look to these tiles.
The biggest disadvantage to the RomaStone tiles is in extra costs versus traditional vinyl tiles. Traditional vinyl tiles require purchasing only the tiles themselves and an self-adhesive tile primer (usually a latex primer). In addition to these products, installing RomaStone will also require the purchase of tile spacers (usually extremely cheap from a hardware store) and special premixed grout designed specifically for grout-able vinyl tile. If you do not already own one from another DIY project, you will also need a grout float to apply the grout. This extra cost is only a minor disadvantage. Installing RomaStone with grout in a kitchen and two bathrooms added an extra $14 more than installing self-adhesive vinyl tiles without grout.
We have only had to replace a single tile thus far, and that was the result of mechanical damage to the tile. A running power saw was dropped onto the floor, and the blade gouged the tile. Replacing the tile was as simple as prying up the old tile, sticking down a new one, and adding new grout. This is made possible because the premixed tile grout is designed to adhere to itself for easy repair of grout lines.
I would highly recommend Cryntel's RomaStone tiles to anyone looking for the appearance of natural stone tiles with the simplicity and low cost of adhesive vinyl tiles.
