Frequently Asked Questions
Certainly, you can order a sample of most tile or flooring products on our website. Cut samples of our tiles and flooring are free of charge. Full tile samples can be ordered, these are charged at the price of the tile and delivery is free. All full samples are sent on a next working day service (based on orders placed before 2:30pm). Note: some items we do have to obtain from the supplies direct and may take 2 - 3 working days (please call customer services if you wish for advice on the sample delivery prior to placing your order). Cut samples are sent via Royal Mail.
If I supply measurements can you calculate the area for me?
Yes, you can contact us via a telephone call (0345 307 5000), live-chat or E-mail us and we will be able to assist you with your calculations.
Are the tile sizes correct?
The sizes that are stated are the sizes that the goods are manufactured to - Referred to as "nominal sizes". This means that due to the manufacturing process and nature of tiles, the exact sizes cannot be manufactured consistently and that different batches of the same tile can vary in size, as much as 2mm, which is a widely accepted tolerance within the industry.
I have decided to tile another area and need to order more
Of course you can, but we would highly recommend that any additional orders refer to the original batch number, so that we can try and match them for you. This is due to the fact that different batches can produce different shades / sizes. Unfortunately, on occasions, we may not be able to be certain that we can match this but we will endeavour to try our best for yourself.
You can call us on 0345 307 5000. Alternatively, you can E-mail us or reach us on Live-chat. Note: Live-chat hours are between 08:00am - 17:00pm but it is advised to call us if your enquiry is urgent

Will all the tiles be delivered from the same batch?
We will always try and send tiles or flooring out from the same batch, however, this is not always practical or possible. It is recommended for any tiling or flooring situation, that you do not fix any tiles or flooring, and that these are inspected prior to installation to avoid any potential batch shading problems.
What if my tiles or flooring are damaged or the order is incorrect?
All damages and irregularities must be notified within 48 hours of the delivery. The exact amount missing or damaged must be notified in writing along with an image and replacements will be sent out or a refund issued where necessary. It will be deemed acceptable that 1 or 2 tiles may be broken, due to the nature of the goods. In this instance we would recommend that you try to use these, where cutting is necessary. If you still require 1 or 2 tiles to complete the job, we will send out the replacements on the assumption the original notification was given within the timescale above.
What is your returns policy?
