Shanna Barnes: hi I moving to a new place and the flooring is awful and im not sure how
much I will need the total square feet in the whole house is a lil under
700 square feet please help and if I could get your wholesale website that
would be great
mazerwholesale: Great question! The floor tile is not suitable for application on walls due
to the type of adhesive used. It's not made for vertical installation. WALL
TILE which is designed specifically for kitchen and bathroom walls! We have
11 great styles and a video. See our website for details and a video.
mazerwholesale: Thank you for your question. The floor should be close to normal room
temperature (60 to 80 degrees) during installation. After the floor is
installed and the adhesive has set (24 hours), the temperature is no longer
Jean Louise Kennedy: Very good video, thanks!
mazerwholesale: Thank you for your question. The grooves between the ceramic tiles are
going to be a problem and will need to be filled. Otherwise the vinyl tile
you put on top will sink into the grooves. Sorry, it's not going to work
unless you get some floor lever.
thetito626: I thought all adhesives were created equally...i hate this country.
mazerwholesale: @gcdiver Thanks for your question. Usually, old tile will just peel up by
hand. You may need to use a stiff putty knife to help it get going. Pull
slowly- try to keep the tile from breaking so you can pull it up in
full-size pieces. If it's really stubborn, use a floor scraper or ice
shopper with has a long handle like a shovel and a 6" flat blade.
Alternatively, cover up one tile at a time with a towel and heat it up with
a hot steam iron which will activate the glue so it will loosen.
LavNglam: Wow. I just checked your prices and I'm impressed. You mentioned smoothness
as a factor in the adhesion of the tiles. Do you guys have any suggestions
with respect to levelers to level tile with grout lines. I wouldn't want to
get something that would not allow the tiles to stick once the floor is
oducavirus: can i use that as bathroom walls?
mazerwholesale: @thetito626 Well, all men are created equally but what happens when they're
put to work is a different story. In this country, we have a better chance
than any other place in the world to work well and do well. If you have a
hard time here, chances are trying somewhere else will make you appreciate
this country more. Just like mixing 2 adhesives- I don't recommend it.
Thanks for the comment. I always appreciate shedding light on tile and the
greatness of America.
followyourbliss101: can you lay this over existing 1 inch square tile floor in a bathroom or
will it need to have leveling compound put over the old tile first?
lrd9999: I've seen self-stick tiles work well on top of linoleum or vinyl, but they
seem to peel up from plywood, at least in wet areas, due to the swelling
and contraction of the plywood. Is there a sealer that will prevent this
mazerwholesale: Thank you for your comment. I've never needed to use anything to enhance
the bond of the self adhesive tile but I've heard great things from one of
our repeat customers about Henry's 336 Bond Enhancer. She buys it a Lowe's
and raves about it.
SamuraiCommando: DO I need to remove all the glue before installing your tiles on a concrete
floor that had vinyl? If so what is the best method?
mazerwholesale: Thanks for your question. The tiles can be removed without too much
difficulty. It'll be a bit messy because they're going to leave a sticky
residue. You will need to get a can of acetone from the hardware store to
dissolve it. If you remove the tile the day after installation it will be
easier than removing it a week after installation. The glue will set firmer
each day for about a week.
mazerwholesale: @oducavirus Thank you for your question. This tile is not recommended for
walls. We have recently come out with wall tiles. they are designed as back
splash tile for around kitchen and bathroom sink. They will soon be
displayed on our website.
BlueHen123: can i use this on kitchen counter tops?
John Moore: Cool Video. Good advice.
mazerwholesale: Thanks for your question. If your tile doesn't peel up so easily by hand
you may need a stiff putty knife or razor scraper. If it's still really
tough, you may need a heat gun or propane torch to warm it up to reactivate
the glue. Before trying to remove the old glue residue, I would test a
couple pieces of the new tile on the already-sticky surface. Let it stand
overnight and check adhesion. If you're not satisfied with the results,
you'll need to get acetone to remove the old adhesive.
five8italian: I'm going to be pulling a self-adhesive tile off an existing self-adhesive
floor and lay down a new one over it. I have 2 questions. What is the best
way to get the old tile up? and what is the best cleaning method to use
over the old floor that exists and will have old adhesive residue on it?
mja3194: ?... I have similar tiles on my floor and because my puppy is still in the
training stages, he's constantly do he's business on the floor, between
that and me mopping it has caused the tiles to raise losing its sticking
power. I plan on re-doing the floor but what can I use to prevent from
raising or water going through?
mazerwholesale: @BlueHen123 I've known many customers to use the tile as shelf liner. I
don't see any reason you couldn't use it on a counter top. However, it's
not recommended for back splash. The adhesive is not warranteed for use on
lagiero: hi there cool video very helpfull but i want to know if you can use this
type of tiles on the wall and will they stick to allready exsisting real
tiles in my bathroom and kitchen
Mike G: Nice video, I actually live in Canada, and I was wondering if Nexus Tile
Collection is here as well? I like that high gloss finish and thats what Im
looking for, and I tried calling your 1-800 number and its not working.
Thanks Mike from Canada
mazerwholesale: In my experience wet mopping is fine but you want to dry after mopping. If
the tile is installed properly (no spaces in between), you shouldn't have a
problem with our product. Thank you for the question.
DynastyQg9: I'm installing this in a cold rental house will that make a difference...
mazerwholesale: @SplogMan Thank you for your comment. Just about anyone can install their
own self-adhesive floor tile. It's a great feeling of satisfaction to see
the finished job. It looks great, it's cheap and lasts a long time.
FCA1975: You're either NEXUS or against us! Seriously, good advice on this video. I
assume I can apply this knowledge to wall tiles as well.
drumsmetalheavy11: Thanks, I needed that advise. Getting ready on to start my kitchen.
Mead D'Amore: Say if I were trying to spruce up an apartment for filming purposes and
needed to get rid of it after the project is completed, how easy is it to
remove the self adhesive tiles after they've been laid?
