The shade of the final product will differ compared to the sample you may receive or the images shown on this website, all natural products have colour variation within and between different batches. You must ensure that you are happy with the colour variation of the product you have received before you start laying, as after installation exchange will no longer be possible.
We would always recommend cutting marble tiles using a small angle grinder with a high quality Diamond blade suitable for hard natural stone products, these tiles are not suitable for DIY installation.
We recommend that all customers read our product selection, maintenance & installation guides before purchasing.
Do not use acidic cleaners on natural stone as they can cause permanent, irreparable, damage to the colour and structure of the stone.
Marble tiles can be laid the same way as standard ceramic or porcelain tiles, with the exception of cutting which will require a wet cutting bench or grinder with a high quality diamond blade. For more information on Marble tiles installation please following the link below:
There are a great range of different of Marble tiles available in the UK market, and this can have a great effect on the price of the different limestone tiles. Marble Tiles can range from £35 + VAT per sqm up to over £60 + VAT per sqm, but it important to select the best quality product you can afford. We would always recommend going to a company that imports directly from the quarries, as they will be able to offer the best price and normally a better product, due to their direct relationship with the quarries.
You will find that all polished marble tiles are more slippery by their very nature than other finishes such natural matt or honed tiles. but if you take care walking on them in wet conditions, they are still suitable for most areas of the home, but it is better to avoid them on bathroom floors. All major tile manufacturers will have technical data sheets, that state the slip rating of their tiles, you need a COF (Coefficient of Friction) of 6 or better to be slip resistant enough for a floor.
All natural stone tiles have some degree of porosity and Marble tiles are no exception, so no they are not completely waterproof. In a shower area and in wet rooms additional tanking will be need, but this is no different to any other tile types, all walls will need tanking if in constant contact with water.
We would always recommend using an Impregnating natural stone sealer for all Marble tiles. These sealers sit under the surface of the stone, helping to prevent staining and reducing maintenance at the same time. It is important not to use topical sealer on Marble tiles, this will sit on the surface of the stone, not allowing it to breath which can cause long term damage to your tiles.
Polishing Marble tiles is a reasonable simple process, but you need experience and the correct equipment to get good results. Basically you need to use a Diamond flooring polishing pad with a 800Grit and over to achieve a polished finish. Marble will take a very high sheen and you can go as high as 3000 grit on most marble types.
As a rule of thumb, you would normally try to match the colour of the grout to the tiles you have selected, but just going with a standard off white colour will generally work with all tile colours, blending with the lighter ones and contrasting with darker coloured tiles. This really is a personal choice and we would recommend doing a test mix with a couple of different colour options before starting the grouting.
Daily cleaning is important, wipe up any spills immediately and sweep floors every day with soft broom to stop any build-up of dirt. Mop Marble floors weekly with clean water and gentle PH neutral cleaner at the recommend ratio shown on the bottle. For walls we would recommend using the same process but with a clean damp cloth. This is an excellent way to prevent build-up of dirt and debris and keep your natural stone tiles looking prefect.
When cutting Marble tiles, it is best to use a diamond blade, and preferably a good quality cut tile bench or 4 ½ inch angle grinder, ideally with water feed machinery to reduce the amount of dust produced and to provide a successful cut through the tiles.

We always send a representative sample from the current batch of tiles or paving we have in stock, so as long as you requested a sample close to the time of purchasing, this will help to ensure the tiles and paving you receive matches the sample you have been sent as closely as possible.
All of our products are either natural or porcelain and therefore there is always scope for variation in shade, colour and to some extent the texture and finish with the natural products and with porcelain there will always be some slight colour variation between different batches, although the surface texture and finish will remain largely the same.
We would strongly recommend that you visit one of our showrooms or paving displays to look at the current selection, so you can be entirely sure of what you will receive.
