We were talking to a company we got a bed from for tile and they said the same thing. Reasons include popping off, cracking and difficulty to clean. They do mainly refurbs so they see all the problems, not just the new product. I guess a lot has to do with how hard our water is here. I then read about them because I was really disappointed since my husband ixnayed the glass after that conversation. Some places said they were easier to clean. Then I started reading some old threads about them and decided I’m not going to put my future self thru that.Wow! Wonderful progress! What are "stand offs?" Did your PB say why they did not recommend the glass?
Did you choose between the two glass tiles and stacked stone combos? I LOVE the Essence glass tile!
