Peel and Stick Tile for Outdoor Use

I'm looking for a peel and stick tile that can be applied on a porch, which may come in contact with water. The porch is concrete. Is there such a peel and stick tile on the market? If not, is there an adhesive that I could apply?

Interesting idea!!! I have this stuff in my bath and kitchen!!! Love the stuff. My coworker installed this stuff in his basement on the concrete in a bathroom. 2 yrs later, hasn't had any problems. He does not have any water problems though. When I installed mine, I put a dab of liquid nail on each corner of each tile for added security. So far none of them have come up!!

I have not heard of anything like this but I love the idea!! Only thing I can suggest is try it. Buy 10 or so tile and slap them down. Might be a wast of 10 bucks but its better than wasting 150 or more dollars. Install them so they are tight up against each other, and some how seal the cracks. You can put a coat of wax on the tile after they have been down for about a month or so.

I am sure some other people will know more. Just some suggestions. This stuff is great, also you may wanna look into congoleum duraceramic. You can grout this stuff or just glue it down. Here is the link. I am going to use this in my newly renovated laundry room.

Thanks for the suggestions. I may go the route of buying and applying a few and then sealing it somehow. Douse it with water and see what happens. I have a crack on the porch that I want to cover up.

Maybe dry-backs and asphalt cutback adhesive but I'd be surprised if it worked and goodness what a mess using cut back if you aren't a pro and what a cleanup if it fails. Vinyl tile come with instructions not to be used on slabs with moisture infiltration. I doubt the poach was poured with a vapor barrier. They aren't around here usually..

NAFCO By Tarkett > Products > PermaStone

Check out the link for these permastone tiles, they are vinyl but aren't self adhesive. They make different
mastic for adhering them to different surfaces.
