I installed DuraStone in 2006 and in only a few years noticed surface discoloration and excessive wear. I've contacted the tile company and the referred me to Congoleum. Congoleum had an inspector come out and his conclusion is that it is not 'wear' but 'scratching' so they won't stand behind it. Our kitchen chairs have always had nylon glides on them but now Congoleum says we should have used felt glides. I am very disappointed and do not recommend this tile. You would think a large corporation would stand behind it's product. It does not hold up against normal wear and tear.

We had Congoleum DuraStone installed in 2004 and it had chips and digs within 4 days. Congoleum rep came out and I said my only solution was to color with magic marker and superglue over to seal and he said "good idea". No help whatsoever. Gave us several free cartons of the tile which are still sitting in the attic 10 years later. Wrote to the company and was told the Lifetime warranty didn't cover chips, peeling, scratches or digs.So don't use anywhere this might happen,like in a house where people live. I said I'd never buy a Congoleum product again and I have told everyone I know not to as well. Also "Lifetime Warranty" means nothing.

I am looking for a few replacement Congoleum Rosestone Vineyard 16x16 durastone tiles, & noticed your comment about having 10 boxes in your attic. I don't know if they will match mine, but taking the chance to see if they do, & see if I can arrange to buy some from you.

Worst product ever seen, did not know that is is a decal stuck on fiber board. Cuts,scratches, nicks and pattern fading in only six months. Was very expensive from Lowe's, plus installed the pattern in all different directions. No support from Lowe's or Congoleum.

Terrible flooring. Chips and scratches all over. Read several other forems and found the same thing.

I am very surprised at the negative reviews for Durastone Symmetry. Had mine installed in the kitchen and bath which are beside each other, in Oct 2002. It has not peeled, shrunk, faded, etc. and still looks new.

Getting ready to have new cabinets put in the kitchen and although I have 7 Durastone tiles leftover, may need more so I'm glad to see it's still available.

Floor still looks great so I am not replacing it.

We installed this product in our dining room, kitchen, hallway, office & one bathroom. What a mistake! The dining room tile was the first to start peeling. The store would not back it & the company never showed up. Next to go was the bathroom where the seams started to pull away from each other. It's an expensive mistake & now we are going to yank it all up & start over with porcelain. The question is ... how do you get this up? The installer glued it directly to our concrete slab. Yikes! Help!
