RevoTile Basics

  • What is RevoTile?
    RevoTile is a revolutionary new porcelain tile that installs more than two-times faster than standard tile. The RapidPrep™ underlayment, RapidGrout™, and ClicFit™ technology allows easy, quick installation without the mess of mortar, spacers, or long wait times.
  • How is RevoTile different than standard tile?

    RevoTile is a revolutionary, patented tile floating floor system. It is glazed porcelain laminated onto RevoCore, a proprietary core backer with patented ClicFit™ Technology locking system. RevoTile offers the same durability and benefits of standard porcelain tile. The ClicFit™ Technology allows for the click-together installation that makes the process quick and easy.

  • Does RevoTile look different than standard tile?
    RevoTile is regular tile on the surface. The only difference is the ClicFit™ Technology and that doesn’t show after installation but provides perfect spacing for perfect grout lines.
  • How much does RevoTile cost?
    The price of the full RevoTile package (with RapidPrep Underlayment & RapidGrout) is comparable to having basic builder grade tile or higher end floating floor installed – BUT you get a stylish, premium porcelain product upgrade. Plus, RevoTile is backed by a Residential Limited Lifetime Warranty when installation instructions are followed.
