What is your turn-around time?
Typical turn-around time depends on what orders are currently in our production queue. Typical turn-around time is 12 weeks (smaller orders can take less time, larger orders will take more time). With increasing demand, lead times may push to 14 weeks. Lead time starts once deposit has been paid.
How do I calculate how much tile I will need?
What payment types do you accept?

YES! Sealing will keep dirt out of the micropores on the surface of the tile. Porcelain is impervious to stains, water, and temperature; however, until a natural patina forms, dirt can get trapped in the tiny pores of the surface. Using an oil based sealer (We like STONETECH® Impregnator Pro® Sealer by Laticrete.) will initiate that patina and keep your floor easier to clean. CLEANING GUIDELINES
