"How Do I Claim My Lifetime Warranty Replacement?"
We purchased our home in 2004 with this Traffic Master Lifetime
Residential Warranty 12 mil wear vinyl tile already recently installed
in our basement. We found a partially used box with no instructions in a
nook under our stairs. Why were we looking for it? The peel and stick
tile mastic backing had started to ooze out of the seams between the
installed tiles. Where does that leave us? Residential Lifetime Warranty-
yes. Do I need to produce a receipt to have someone come and assess and
replace the product?-because I do not have one. Tile centers still look
good except for the obvious black mastic around every single edge of the
tile, and of course the stick with every step. I do not think this brand
has worn well, nor do I think if I call Traffic Master they will do a
darned thing for me. If I were the person that bought it I surely would
not recommend it to anyone. We are hardly ever in our basement so this
is an issue we shouldn't be having.

"Looked beautiful - Steam mop ruined it - Minimal difficulty getting reimbursed"
I installed 11 boxes of this extremely heavy duty and beautiful floor
tile in my kitchen. I chose it after looking at many different types of
flooring. I put it right over a worn out (17 year old) sheet vinyl. I
wanted a softer floor than ceramic or granite and also didn't want to
have to beef up the subfloor before installation. The Trafficmaster
Ceramica tile is rather hard to cut but if a sharp razor knife is used
it can be scored and snapped. Around casings and corners a hacksaw or
coping saw works very nicely. This is a groutable tile and is laborious
but not impossible to do. The finished product looked awesome! Many
people really thought it was ceramic. After a while we decided to clean
it and having good luck in the past with our old floor using a steam mop
- that is what we used again as there were no instructions at all on how
to clean or care for this product. We noticed a couple of dull marks
with some sort of pattern similar to a large shoe print. We immediately
thought someone had walked through our new kitchen with something
caustic on their shoes. My wife with much difficulty ripped up one of
the tiles that always caught her eye when entering the room and replaced
it. Then after cleaning the floor again with the steam mop finally
realized what was dulling the floor and making the pattern. Making along
story short we explained the above to Milstead Int (the makers of the
tile), we were reimbursed for the cost of all of the tile from Home
Depot. I'm happy with that but still have a floor with numerous
imperfections and I will not be reimbursed for my time and labor for
installation and the frustration and time it takes to get reimbursed.

"I love the look but floor is discolored"
I love the look, but after one year, the tiles have darkened/yellowed
from the time installed, I only use a damp mop w/ light floor cleaner
and sweep often. The durability is fine, but discolored. Any

I have bought and invested in tm floors for 80% of my house. Still in
process of laying down but so far Easy! Was not sure I would be able
to do this myself. If not for the sticky on the floor don't know if it
would have worked with all my animals going back and forth. So far
love the look, Love the ease of cleaning. Biggest concern is accidents
while I'm at work. Time will tell. I will be giving another review
when the entire floor is laid and doggies and kitties have had a
chance to go at it.

"TrafficMaster floor review"
My previous review shows as very unsatisfied. That is definitely an
error. I love these floors. They still look great. I am very satisfied.

"Love my floors!"
I installed TrafficMaster Ceramica Tiles in the color Shasta in 2
upstairs bathrooms over the pre-existing vinyl! It looks and feels
really good! I used 1/8" spacers and grouted it with pre-mixed grout in
the color "Earth". It was easy to install and it looks like real tile
and feels like it too (except not cold like real tile)! It takes a lot
of muscle to score it and cut it, but I have no experience doing it and
it looks great! I posted a picture on the Home Depot website if anyone
wishes to see it! It has been installed for a few months and still looks
great! Next is my kitchen, I hope!

"GROUTABLE VINYL TILES"
I installed Groutable vinyl tiles myself two years ago in two bathrooms, foyer, and kitchen-dining area. Floors still look great and the only problem I've ever had has been a couple of tiny nicks, not even noticeable by accidentally dropping heavy pots on the kitchen floor. If it would have been true ceramic tiles, they would have had very noticeable creaks. They look and feel like real stone tiles. I'm very happy with them. I just mop with a steam mop to clean, never need waxing or harsh cleaners.

"Is it ceramic or is it vinyl"
I would like to tell you about the TrafficMaster Ceramica Series flooring tiles that I bought this spring. First of all, you can install these tiles with or without grout in between the cracks. The corners are rounded so you can do both options. The reason I picked these tiles is because they have a lifetime warranty, thou you can't install them in a commercial setting. I guess it voids the warranty if you install them in your office. They are pretty easy to install yourself if you can keep a straight line. They are made out of vinyl but they look like ceramic tile. So far they have stood up to my three kids and our dog without scratching or looking like hell. They are pretty good if you have a rental unit and don't want to install real tile. I would recommend these tiles and the people who make them.
