How many extra tiles should I order?
We recommend that you allow an extra 10% for wastage and cuts for your order. Please be aware we only sell full boxes,the square meterage per box varies depending on the packaging. Please refer to the product description for packaging informations.
How long will it take for my delivery to arrive?
All of our tiles are delivered through a nationwide haulage company across mainland UK. Orders placed before 12.30pm will be dispatched the same day. The material is delivered whitin 3 working days from your payment clearing, If you require the products at a later date or if you would like to have a next day delivery service please get in touch with our sales team, we will advise you in case of extra costs involved and arrange accordingly.
Deliveries arrive on an 18-tonne truck with tail-lift and are strictly to the kerbside. If your property has restricted access please let us know at the time of ordering via the delivery restrictions comments box. This may incur an additional charge. Hazards or obstructions e.g. steps, lifts, uneven or gravel paths/driveways may necessitate the delivery being made to an alternative location nearest to the delivery vehicle. Goods will not be broken down or discharged by the driver. Take caution when removing all packaging to avoid damages and injury. Please assess the weight of the boxes as tiles can be heavy, precautions may need to be made.
PLEASE Check your tiles carefully when they are delivered for signs of damage. If your tiles are damaged, sign for as damaged and take a photo whilst on the pallet prior to unloading.
Call us to report damage within 24 hours of receiving your pallet.
All damages and irregularities must be notified within 24 hours from delivery. We will need image proof sent over via email of any damages. The exact amount missing or damaged must be notified, in writing and replacements will be sent out FOC. All damaged or faulty goods may be collected at the request of the delivery/collection company. It will be deemed acceptable that 1 or 2 tiles may be broken, due to the nature of tiles, in this instance we would recommend that you try and use these where cutting is necessary, if you still require 1 or 2 tiles to complete the job then we will send out the replacements on the assumption the original notification was given within the timescale above.
We will make every effort to resolve any issues as quickly as we can, however customers should not book the work of any professionals before they are in receipt of their complete order and have checked it is correct.
Once an order has been dispatched from our warehouse and is in the care of the courier, you will receive a dispatch email. The order is then unable to be amended. Therefore please ensure that delivery dates, addresses and items are correct prior to dispatch. Please assess the weight of the boxes as tiles can be heavy, precautions may need to be made.
What if I am not at home when the delivery arrives?
Unless by prior arrangement, the driver will not leave the tiles. If a second delivery attempt is required, an additional charge of £40.00 is likely to be incurred.
We encourage customers to purchase sample tiles before making their complete purchase to give a true, accurate and clear appraisal of the product and its suitability for its installation. Either pay for a full size piece or choose free cut pieces, which are limited to three pieces per order. Please remember shades and calibration of tiles differ especially with natural products, so before fixing ensure you are entirely happy with the product as any claims once the product has been fixed will not be considered. Any purchases of samples are also governed under these terms and conditions.
How do I arrange for my order to be left safe?
If you are aware that you will not be at the delivery address at time of delivery please notify us via email or leave us special instructions on where the goods can be left on your property whilst placing the order.
Could I return any unused tiles?
In case of special orders, imported from abroad on customer`s specifications we cannot accept any return.Due to the transport cost involved and the risk of damage we do not suggest you to return any unused tiles but if you wish to do so please get in touch with our office and we will do our best to help you. Note that returned goods must be in good conditions, in unopened boxes and we can only accept them back if the same batch number is still stocked in our warehouse. Please also note that restocking fee and haulage costs apply.
Customers can request samples of tiles prior to committing to an order to ensure they will satisfy expectations, as colours on the website may not always accurately portray the colour of the product. We offer a smaller cut piece of tile that we will send you free of charge up to maximum of 3 pieces or you can order a 300x600 sample for only £4,99. In case the item you are interest in is bigger than 300x600mm we will have to cut it down to a smaller size, rest assure that you will have a clear idea of the design from a 300x600 sample.
Please note that there is a tolerance for sizing variation and shading so please check items on receipt as we are unable to rectify any issues once tiles have been fitted.

SHADING AND SIZING
Due to the manufacturing processes products can vary in shade and size. This is a characteristic of the product and must be considered when ordering tiles. that`s the main reason for ordering a bit extra than what you need, we will always try our best to send you the same batch in case of shortage but of course we cannot guarantee the same batch to be available for re-orders.

LIABILITY- PLEASE READ THIS CLAUSE CAREFULLY
Please be aware:
As part of our service we are happy to assist with working out measurements and the suitability of products for a particular installation, but it remains ultimately the customers’ responsibility to ensure suitability and quantities prior to fixing. We will not be responsible in the event that the wrong quantity of tiles, or tiles that are not suitable for any particular placing have been ordered.
Due to the manufacturing process products may vary in shade, tolerance and calibration this is especially prevalent in natural products. The variance in colours and textures is not a defect, but merely a characteristic and most natural products will require sealing prior to grouting and may require ongoing maintenance.
You should not arrange for fitting until all goods are received and your order is complete. All lead times are quoted with goodwill, but we cannot be responsible for any failure to meet these or any consequential loss.
If you are in any doubt about the suitability of the product, do not proceed to fitting but please contact our customer services team using the details on our Contact Us page who would be pleased to assist.
Please check all goods prior to fitting as we are unable to accept any claims after the tiles have been installed except in the cases of any inherent non visible defects.
Please be aware that there may be slight variations in colour, shades and dimensions from batch to batch. We advise you to order enough product to cover your needs accordingly as we cannot accept any liability for any minor differences in any subsequent batch or batches that you may need to order.
Any products displayed on the website alongside your order are suggested accompanying products only. We cannot guarantee the suitability of these suggested accompanying products for your particular project and you should not rely on these suggestions. Save for circumstances where any accompanying product is faulty, we do accept any liability once tiles have been fixed if that product is unsuitable.
