It is expected that 2%-3% of your tile arrives damaged (chipped or scratched), since our tiles are primarily handmade, hand picked and hand packed exposing the product to breakage, therefore slight surface issues are standard. The best practice is to order at least 10% more than your project requirements to cover allow for these issues, as well as other breakage during installation.

Unfortunately, cement tile does not come with finishing trim pieces. I wonder if the companies that make them will ever address that issue, especially now that this style of tile is so popular.

I serve the ball to them, and they complete their tasks. They lob it back over the net to us, and it is our turn to work. With this pattern firmly established, we all stay on task. Last week, when the ball was back on our side of the table, I completed the cement tile backsplash
Yeah cement tiles might be a strange style for a colonial, but you never know…it could be lovely. Unfortunately my husband had the range hood built and drywalled in a day when I wasn’t at the Dexter House so I don’t have any progress photos for you.

Good luck with your’s – I’d love to see photos!
