Home Depot carry's some Dal stuff too. They use the same numbers as Dal for the material, except it will have "HD" as the first two letters. Just the other day, one of my guys and I were in HD. I pointed at some Eliane tile and told him it used to be crap. Their sizing was absolutely horrific, but they are much better now days. It used to also be much thinner than normal tile.RSCHAP1 said:Thanks, thanks, thanks. Thanks for the flip. It was not Dal Tile material. We shopped at a couple "high-end" tile places and I ended up just getting product @ Home Depot. Looked same or better quality and was about 1/3 -1/4 of the price by the time all the trim, thin set, grout etc was calculated. Elaine was the brand name of this stuff.
You can buy a used handcutter (snap cutter) for about $10 at a pawn shop.RSCHAP1 said:My biggest concern was color/pattern that the wife liked. In the end we took sample from our local "high end" tile distrubutor, and I matched up with the Elaine stuff. Wife could pick one from other. So I went with it. I did notice Dal EVERY where I shopped. High End place, Menards, and HD. Just didn't have what the wife was after. Also have to thank my buddy. Let me use his $80 tile saw and tools. Best piece I used though, was a $2 scoring/snapping pliers. Plastic handles with a small steel (or maybe it's carbide) scoring wheel. I would never have guessed a $2 cheap tool was so HANDY!!
