Lanzi Ceramic Tile

Need to locate some Lanzi Ceramic tile, Model Bretone Amen. Has been discontinued and I'm in need of replacing some broken/loose ones.

Good luck! Finding old, discontinued tile can be a nightmare. I went looking about a year after my house was built and the flooring department manager at the local big box store (a friend of mine) literally called every other store to no avail.

Have you tried the store from which it came like I did?

Ebay, craigslist, maybe a Habitat for Humanity store, ....

I've tried store they came from 9 years ago, searched all kind of sites online including ebay and amazon with no luck. Tomorrow going to a flooring store in a nearby town that has been in business about 40 years. He said he has a lot of old stock in the back warehouse so maybe I'll get lucky. If not, gonna have to replace all our tile which is about 800 square feet. Really didn't want to spend that kind of money for about 20 tiles needing replacing. Might just have to walk on loose/cracked tiles even though wife doesn't agree.

Not to be a downer, but if you have to replace 20 square feet of cracked/loose tile, I would be concerned about the underlayment, support, etc. On the loose tile can you tell if there is any concrete underlayment or Ditra, or is it just ply wood?

Nine years old? Fuggedaboudit.

As Chandler said, 20 loose/broken tiles sounds like it all may need to come out anyway.

That's 20 square feet scattered about over 800 square feet of tile. is on a concrete slab. Think problem is in the amount of thin set used. Most of loose tiles are in area done by one person while the larger areas were done by another person and no problems.

If you think the rest of the tiles are ok, I'd be looking for something complementary to what you have to create a combination look. Might have to remove a few more to make it look not like a fix.
