Terms & Conditions

PLEASE NOTE ABOUT SAMPLES AND PRIOR TO PLACING ANY ORDER It is important to order a sample BEFORE placing a larger order. Product colors & sizes vary by each production run. We post photos that best represent our items; however, the computer images do not 100% accurately represent the actual tile/hardwood color, texture, and graining. Due to the various manufacturer production runs, it is imperative to order a sample from us first, BEFORE placing your order. Only seeing and feeling the product in person, in the light of your final installation area will accurately reflect the look of your desired outcome. In addition, please note the actual size may vary slightly than indicated on our website since most manufacturer's list "nominal" sizes.

Natural Stone Information

Natural Stone is a product of nature and therefore pieces will not be duplicated in any manner. You can expect varying degrees of color, veining, finishes and fills in your product which enhances it's beauty. The stone that is shipped to you may or may not be a direct match of the sample that the product was chosen from, it may have some inherent shade variation. The sample may or may not blend with the product that was delivered.

Please check your tile before installation. Carefully open up a few cartons and "dry lay" the product on the floor to make sure that you are satisfied with the overall look. When the product is installed it should be pulled from multiple cartons. If you received multiple pallets/crates, the tile should be mixed from crates & cartons.

 

Rectangle (Plank) Tile Information

During the manufacturing process of these tiles the material is pressed and that may cause a slight bowing effect. This is to be expected in the production and is not a manufacturing defect. It will be neutralized during installation if the proper procedure is followed. If you are looking for a "staggered" installation they must be installed using a 1/3 or 1/4 stagger. If the installation is at 1/2 it may exaggerate any slight bowing produced during manufacturing. Any 1/2 stagger installation will be rejected as a claim.

 

Tile Size

All measurements listed for the size of tiles are "nominal" measurements and may or may not be the actual size of the tile.
