We try to get your orders to you as quickly as possible and subject to stock and timings endeavour to get orders packed and despatched the day the order arrives with us.

11. Please check your tiles carefully before fixing. Shade variation is a design feature of most of our tiles. If any reason you are not happy with the shade of your tiles, we cannot accept responsibility after the tiles have been fixed. Fixing the tiles to a substrate means that you have accepted the tiles in their present state so no refunds or replacements will be offered. Please ensure you are happy with the shade of your tiles before you start any project.
