Monticito offers the exquisite style of marble in a durable, easy-to-maintain color through body porcelain tile. The delicately veined appearance and subtle shading creates the true look of marble. Monticito comes in three classic colors, which work well in any environment and is sure to make an instant impression.

Notes:

  • Special care should be taken when grouting with dark pigmented colors. A grout release is recommended to prevent finely powdered pigments from lodging in the pores of the tile surface.

  • Use of a latex modified thin-set is recommended for installation. Not for use on ramps.
