Do all materials look like the sample pictures on your site?
It is recommended that all materials are examined in person or samples ordered before buying material. Although best effort is made to ensure images are as close as possible to the actual product, variations in shade, color or appearance is possible. Monitor settings can also play a role in the representation of a picture. If you are still unsure, contact us for samples.

When should I schedule my installation?
It is recommended that you wait for all of your material to arrive. Although we try to keep backorders and damage to a minimum, this is a remote possibility.
How much extra material for cuts and waste should I include with my order?
Industry standards are typically 10%-15%, but can vary due to many factors. Our calculator determines how many boxes and how many square feet you may need based on the quantity you input, but does not include a percentage for overage. Please confirm actual measurements with your contractor.
Is your material first quality?

Should I expect shade variations or imperfections in this product?
Yes. Please be aware that cement tile is a handmade product. Cement tiles will not be identical from piece to piece. Slight variations such as size, shade, slight imperfections, irregular edges and the appearance of fine cracks are inherent to this product and can vary from piece to piece. This adds to the natural appeal and does not compromise the performance. Cement Tile Shop does not warranty against shade variations. Any signed for material is considered accepted by the customer.

What is the best way to avoid excess or shortages of material?
Proper measuring is the key to minimizing waste and overage. Having an installation professional, measuring company or using available online calculators will help in assisting with proper measurements.
I operate a business from my home. Is this considered a commercial delivery?
Commercial addresses are determined by the freight company. (Typically these are a warehouse, loading dock or business with a forklift.) Businesses operating out of a residence do not qualify. If delivering to a residence please check the appropriate box at checkout. If a residential address is noted as a business delivery extra charges will be applied.
