Our exquisite tiles are meticulously crafted by hand, and while we strive to keep a small quantity in stock, there may be instances where we need to allocate a lead time if the desired quantity is not immediately available. The duration of the lead time is directly influenced by the size of your order. It is crucial to allow our tiles enough time to cure and attain optimal strength before they are ready to leave our factory. This dedication to the curing process is the very reason behind the necessity of a lead time.

By following these guidelines and taking the necessary steps to properly install and seal your tiles, you can ensure their longevity and maintain their beauty for years to come.

  • The installation process for our tiles follows the same method as other tiles, and we kindly request that you consult our tiling guidelines for detailed instructions on cutting, grouting, and sealing. It is important to share this installation guide with your chosen installer or consider utilizing one of our recommended professionals.
  • Each tile leaving our factory already features one coat of applied sealer, providing an initial layer of protection. Once your tiles have been properly laid, grouted, and allowed sufficient drying time, we advise following our reference guide for applying additional sealer after grouting. This step-by-step guide, which can be found in our installation manual, will assist you in correctly applying the necessary sealer. It’s important to note that the sealer is included with your order at no extra cost.
  • We want to highlight that cutting concrete tiles requires the use of an angle grinder equipped with a sharp diamond tip blade. This ensures precise and clean cuts to achieve the desired results.
