Yes! Zia’s patterned cement tiles can be installed in wet areas when sealed properly with a penetrating sealer at the time of installation. Using a sealer ensures your patterned tiles are protected in wet locations such as bathrooms, kitchens, and entryways.

Finally, be sure the adhesive cement and grout you use are appropriate for wet areas.
Because patterned cement tile isn’t sealed as part of the hand-production process, it’s important to seal the tiles with a penetrating sealer if the area may get damp. Areas that experience frost or freezing temperatures may cause cracks due to freeze-thaw cycles, so installation isn’t recommended outdoors. Lastly, patterned cement tile should not be installed in areas that might encounter heavy loads like vehicles or equipment, such as on driveways or garage floors.
