"Replacements please"
Thay were easy to install, beautiful to see - and easy to clean. If only dropping a dinner knife onto them didn't crack them. I mean - drop anything hard on them and they cracked. What a bloody disappointment. Unless you plan to not walk on them at all - Do not buy them!

"Fantastic product"
Avaire flooring is a do it yourself dream. Three years ago I tiled the sun room, kitchen, hallway, porch, bathroom and I am now doing the computer room. They snap together very easily and the spaces are nice and even. I have never had a tile break and I have dropped some very heavy things on them. Some of the reviews I read are from people whose tiles are cracking. The first and most important thing with this or any tile is have to have a level floor with no bumps. The tile should not rock back and forth when you put weight on it. The tiles with the flexable grout do give a bit when I put pressure on them but they are designed to do that. I have since bought enough to also do the master bedroom. The hardest part of these tiles is the grouting. Do not grout to many because the grout dries very fast and then it is a bit of work to get the haze off. I have saved hundreds of $ doing this myself. It sure beats haveing to lay metal lath and then puting concrete on it by paying for a contracter to do the job. I'm happy saving thousandof $'s

"Love it!"
We had the Avaire tile put into our water closet 6 years ago and it looks the same as it did when it was installed. We hired a friend who had laid tile before and the installation was good. On open floors with lots of space, it goes really fast. However, trying to get the pieces to interlock on tight corners gave us a bit of a fit - otherwise we truly love this flooring. We are now installing it in our main bathroom and our front door entry.

"Very disappointed"
We picked this tile because we could do it ourselves and seemed relatively easy. In fact putting it down went quite well. Three years later I noticed a crack in two adjoining tiles. I assumed someone dropped something. However one year later we now have multiple tiles cracking in different areas of our kitchen and dining area. I feel sick. I waited years to get a beautiful floor and now I'm not sure what to do. We will file a warranty claim but if I have to eventually replace the floor, you can be sure it won't be Avaire.

"Awesome product"
We replaced, kitchen, dining room. Entryway, and three bathrooms with the Avaire 3 years ago. It is still in great shape and looks amazing. The only downside is cutting the tile as the plastic on the bottom is hard on the saw blades. We did the installation ourselves and was extremely easy. Recently had a flooded basement and have to replace the laminate, Avaire will be going down.

"An expensive nightmare I can't afford to fix."
Installation was great. The self sealing grout is great. I love, love, love the way my floor looks... Except for all the cracking tiles. 2 years and 6 months ago I had my kitchen and bathroom redone with this tile. It looked great. I had saved up for a long time for this project. Now, I regret every penny I spent. I have so many cracked floor tiles it's astonishing. The grout is fine but the tiles are a nightmare. I'm so disappointed. I'm going to have to live with my cracking crumbling floor for a few more years till I can save up for another big investment in flooring. *Sigh*

"Floating floor system"
We had the Sahara pattern of floor tile put in and it has been a nightmare. This is something we would not select again. This is the avaire but, it looks dirty and I can't stand the look. It has had some wax put on and it came off in spots. I don't know what to do. We have spent money on this to get it to look right but, that has not happened It is only 8 months old. I would like to change it out for something that looks good and a little shine to it. If anyone has any suggestions let us know. Pat and Don

Review:
"Tile cracks easily; grout crumbles"
I had Avaire floating ceramic tile installed in my remodeled kitchen. Within a week, we started noticing some cracked tiles and looseness of the grout. We subsequently discovered that dropping a table fork from the kitchen table or cupboard was enough to crack the tiles. A year later, about 25% of the tiles are cracked and the same amount of grout has crumbled and come loose. When we complained, someone from Snapstone came out, pretended to examine the floor and then said that our floor wasn't sufficiently level although he never actually measured the floor or examined underlayment. We checked the floor later and it meets the specs on Avaire's web site. The only reason the 'inspector' came out was to pretend to provide customer service and falsely claim we didn't install it correctly. This is an extraordinarily cheap product which I would never install again. We have to tear it out and start over with something new. It will not be Avaire or Snapstone.

"Avaire Porcealin Tile Floor"
My wife and I shopped for porcelain tile and looked at the required work and preparation to install one as we are do it yourself. I and my wife can not say enough good about our Avaire floor. Note Snapstone sold at Menards is the same product made for them by Avaire. It is great and the company has always answered there phone calls and been helpful every time to answer our questions. We did 420 Sq Feet a Kitchen Powder room laundry room closet and a dining area and we have a dog and 3 kids. The floor has been in for 4 months and is great. The product is so precise that the lock tabs are extremely accurate when installing. The hardest part for us was the grouting but follow there instructions to a Te and you to will enjoy this great floor. We cant say enough good about it we are extremely satisfied you won't go wrong with this product. I talked to several people who were also satisfied as we are to. John and Pat

"Would recommend thid to anyone"
When my husband and I decided to update our 1950's kitchen, the first thing that definitely had to go was the linoleum flooring. After debating between pergo flooring and tile, we opted to go with the tile. Although a bit hard to describe the color, we went with is a medium brown with black steaks and white. I absolutely love it. When guests are over, its looks clean even if it's dirty because of the specs in the design. Cleanup is a sinch. I also run a vaccuum over it before I mop it and it just shines and gives our kitchen a very modern look. I don't ever have to worry about the linoleum cracking or breaking. We have a few extra pieces in case a tile should crack, but we've never had to replace one yet. Although the tile was a bit expensive, it is extremely durable. I would definitely recommend this tile to anyone who is considering redoing their flooring.
