Default Snap-Stone Tile looks interesting

I was at Menard's yesterday and ran across a product I had not seen before call Snap Stone. It is a porcelain tile that is free floating, snaps together and has a thin silicone looking "padding" on the bottom. No glue or thinset mortar. The grout joints are perfectly aligned due to the way it snaps together, and is grouted with a flexible silicone sand grout. Looks like a perfect thing to use if you are wanting tile in your bird. Heat pads can be used underneath it as well.

I looked at their installation video. This material looks like a faily easy install in your house. Just looking at all the rounded and angled corners in our coaches and this project, in my opinion, starts looking VERY difficult. My opinion only, your results may vary.

Just thinking it wouldn't be much different as far as cuts, etc. than regular tile/marble/granite..... just better for the flex factor and no thinset.

......and I wouldn't have mentioned it if Ernie did tile...

Now you tell me After I bought the warm tile system and regular porcelan tiles to do my kitchen area.

Actually, there weren't any heat mats that would fit the area anyway

for tile do you pull up the ply and drop down wonderboard or something underneath it?

Bird floors are constructed so well, steel and marine grade plywood, with that material no underlayment is required

Lowes used to carry something very similar. (I don't recall the brand) Now they don't. I know there were many problems with the product they carried, enough so that again they dropped the product.
