Customers must do this upon receipt of the product. Once the product is delivered to the customer or their assigned representative and signed for it belongs to the customer(s). Do take time to inspect the product prior to installation do not install damaged product. If there are a few damaged tiles we can work with you and overnight some more tiles, laminate flooring or mosaics. Please do not install directly from the box. Layout the installation prior to affixing to the wall or floor to understand if there are any variations in your order. Installing product is your acceptance of the product and any claims of labor arising from fixing or repairing the damaged product is solely the customer's responsibility. Please do not order if you have no intention of dry laying the tile or mosaic prior to installation. The mosaics or tile have to be dry laid first then any issues of shade variation can be easily identified and swapped out or exchanged at our cost. As the issue has been identified as a problem with the product. Do not install the product then email us with pictures of the product stating that there is unacceptable variation in the stone. This can be created during installation. The grout could have soaked into the stone. What condition was the mosaic left in during the installation process. There are no answers to these questions. All we know is if there was a problem with the mosaic it should be identified prior to installing.
ISSUES RELATING TO NATURAL STONE
Being natural stone, some variation of color, sizes, thickness, finish, pattern etc. is to be expected the acceptable tolerance on our beveled tile is +/- 1mm. Honing in most cases is perfect on our tile and an even finish; if they are any slightly uneven areas your professional installer will be able to correct the honing job perfectly, but in most cases a honed tile will have to be covered with a sealer and any slight imperfections in the tile will be covered over. To obtain the most natural effect and to display the full beauty of our Carrara stone it is important to mix the entire quantity of tiling for each area. If there are several pallets of stone it is preferable to open them all and take tiles randomly from all the pallets. This will result in a harmonious blend of colors and will avoid concentrations of lighter or darker tiles. Any tiles that have suffered small chips or minor damage during transport and unpacking can be set aside for perimeter cuts.
Remember buy a samples before you order, buy 1SF or even better buy 5% of the size of the job you are going to do - it will cost you a few extra dollars but at least there will be no misunderstandings and no mistakes.
