I may have good news for those of you who would like to tile your bathroom!
I called Flex Tile
today and spoke with a wonderful woman who explained the deal with Flex Tile.
Here are the facts:
Flex Tile was created many years ago by the owner of this company. He designed it to be used in Fiberglass pools. She explained that the pools were being grouted with traditional means for a pool but when the temp rose and fell the grout and tiles would crack because fiberglass expands and contracts with the temp. The product he developed called R&R 100% Silicone Rubber Adhesive and Grout flex with the changes in temp and size and is also waterproof. She also said that no substrate is needed between the sub floor and tile. She said just to use the adhesive...
The owner also happens to be an RV enthusiast. He began using this product to tile his RV and now to date has tiled 4 of his own RVs and has had no issues. Check out the images on his site
(not the best site). I am going to call him on Monday to discuss the details further as he is out on an RV trip as we speak...
So anyway, she is putting together a quote for me as we speak for the tools and the adhesive and grout I need for my project. I will be tiling a shower bulkhead wall, the floor and the toilet surround and back splash. This is approx 40 sq. ft. I ordered 50 sq. ft. of 3/4" square 1/8" thick tiles to use for this job.
I will let you know how this turns out and post photos of the process. Wish me luck...
