TILE Q's & A's
ARE THEY REMOVABLE?
Many thoughtful considerations went into reinventing self-adhesive products that made it possible to achieve luxury looks in just hours! Chiefly among them was "sticking power." DIP Self-Adhesive Tile Backsplashes come with A 20-year warranty heavy-duty Self-Adhesive System that bonds like construction glue, but without the mess, odor, or dry time. They are not easily removable. Removing the product can chip off surfaces and leave the adhesive residue behind.
ARE THEY WATERPROOF?
DIP Tile Backsplashes are perfect for bathrooms and kitchens because they are water, moisture, and steam resistant. However, they are not 100% waterproof because they are grout-less therefore we don’t recommend them for inside showers.
WHAT ABOUT SURFACES?
As long as a textured surface is reasonably level—meaning no big bumps, high peaks, and valleys, flagstones or rock our DIP Self-Adhesive Tiles will stick onto existing mirrors, brick, paneling, tile, ceiling tiles, orange peel, and troweled textures like stucco. However, they will not work on crumbly surfaces like textured popcorn ceilings or unsealed unpainted cement and cinder blocks.
WHAT ABOUT HEAT?
As long as our products are a safe and reasonable distance away from an open flame our DIP Lightweight DIY Self-Adhesive Tiles are able to withstand high temperatures, up to 190 degrees Fahrenheit. Therefore, they are perfect for fireplaces and kitchen backsplash transformations.
WHAT ABOUT OUTSIDE EDGES?
Outside corners are easy to trim or embellish because our multi-dimensional wood colors pair well with wood corner moldings. Other options are to stain or paint corner moldings or use metal trim instead, for a modern edge. Or go full creative and use picture frames or ornate architectural moldings to make a fabulous statement.
You will be happy to know that our self-adhesives are superior in every way and made in the USA. Our self-adhesive is exported to China to make our DIP Self-Adhesive products. However, to get the best cost-effective high-quality production China is, without a doubt, the leader in this kind of manufacturing.
WHAT IS PVCLV?
Thank you for asking about our product. PVC is the world's third-most widely produced plastic polymer. It’s used to manufacture anything from construction pipes, doors, windows, imitation leather, and flooring. LV stands for Luxury Vinyl, which uses digital image technology and embossing to recreate the look and feel of natural wood and stone in realistic ways. Ours PVCLV wall planks come with an exclusive Matte Finish that makes the depth of our colors and patterns super gorgeous! Our metallic tiles are an aluminum composite PVC. We meet all the requirements to sell in California, which has the strictest laws concerning environmental products. This includes Prop 65, which requires products to provide “clear and reasonable warnings” about a chemical’s ability to cause cancer, reproductive harm, or birth defects on packaging or labels. Which we are happy to report, there's nothing to report. none.
