Vermont Maple 6 x 36
Porcelain Wood Look Tile Made in Spain
The Vermont Maple 6 x 36 wood-looking porcelain tile comes with a beautiful textured finish that accurately simulates a natural oak-wood floor. These beautiful tiles come with non-rectified or pressed edges to simulate a real hardwood plank look and a low gloss finish that feels real to the touch. This collection is designed and manufactured in Spain by Keros Ceramica. The manufacturing process is subject to strict quality standards to make sure the tiles are free of defects and are consistent in size and tonality. Their tiles go through several inspections and quality controls to make sure that each tile surpasses the industry standards. With a PEI Class III rating, this floor is more than adequate for high traffic areas in residential applications.
The non-rectified edges provide a realistic hardwood floor surface look. The manufacturer recommends installing the tiles with 1/8 in (3 mm) grout line. A smaller grout line can be achieved with minimal “lippage” using a leveling-spacer installation system. The manufacturer also recommends installing the planks with an offset of 25% or less to minimize the bowing effect. A 15-20% offset is optimal to achieve a real hardwood pattern. You can achieve regular staggered patterns or herringbone patterns with this product. Never install porcelain tiles on a “brick pattern” or 50% offset pattern.
