Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Will ceramic tile chip and crack?

Prior to installation, ceramic tile is a very brittle product but once it is installed, it becomes a permanent part of your construction, and will not chip or crack unless hit with a heavy object.

Q. How durable is ceramic tile?

If the right product is selected and maintained properly, that is, kept free of grit and sand, it should last the lifetime of your home.

Q. What is a rectified tile?

Rectified tiles go through a cutting process called grinding, which trims all pieces to the same exact size. As a result, seating joints can be minimal, reducing the amount of grout and making the assembly more aesthetically pleasing.

Q. What types of finishes exist?

The finish refers to the upper surface of the tile's coating and can be polished, satin, mat, or natural.

Q. Can floor tiles be installed on walls? Or wall tiles on floors?

Virtually any floor tile can be installed on the wall, though in most cases, it is not appropriate to switch them. Consult the installer or product manufacturer for application recommendations.

Q. Can I install tiles on top of other tiles?

Yes, but only if the surface below has been installed correctly and is not broken or experiencing any problems. An adhesive that is guaranteed to adhere the tile to the existing tile is necessary. Ensure that the existing tiles are still well adhered to the substrate.

Q. How many tiles should be ordered?

Before ordering a certain number of tiles, it is necessary to know the extension of the surface to be tiled and have selected the installation technique and plan.

Being stated the above, it is necessary to know that:

  • Even a batch of top quality tiles can contain some defective tiles (the standards allow for a 5% of defective tiles)
  • Some tiles must be cut or drilled; therefore a certain number will be wasted.
  • Some tiles should be kept aside for any future repairs, it is also important to spare a sample to show in case of any complaints.

All in all, about a 10% extra tiles should be ordered exceeding the actual extension of the surface to be tiled, moreover, a sole order is recommended, for the product of another lot might not be perfectly uniform with the one of the previous order.
