Terms of sales and our conditions

Legal: Our terms of sale and conditions

Please be aware that cement tile is a handmade product. Cement tiles will not be identical from piece to piece. Variations such as size, shade, imperfections, irregular edges and the appearance of fine cracks are inherent to this product and can vary from piece to piece. This adds to the natural appeal and does not compromise the performance of the tile.

Due to these qualities, there will be a variance in every item. All cement tiles may suffer color tone changes over time and with regular maintenance. To ensure the best color match, place orders for all quantities to complete the installation, including extras for damage, cuts and waste. We recommend 15% to be added to all measurements. Material should be mixed from different cartons during installation to provide a cohesive installation.

Sample tiles are representative of colors, but may vary from batch to batch. Tiles.design Corp is not responsible for the appearance or differences of samples provided by manufacturers or local suppliers/showrooms.
