This tile takes the classic quarry cement range to a bolder more contemporary look and feel. It can be used to create the ever so popular checker board pattern and is perfect for out door veranda’s or for a bolder indoor space. It can be used indoors and outdoors. This tile has colour variation and no two tiles are exactly the same – all tiles are made by hand.
Tiles are sold per square meter VAT inclusive. Shipping not included and will be quoted for on request.

Laying of quarry tiles:
Tiles can be layed directly onto a rough cast base, using a normal sand cement mix. It is not necessary to first screed your surface before laying your tiles. If the surface is already screeded use a cement base tile adhesive approximately 3mm thick to bed your tiles in. Space your tiles 15-25mm apart, depending on your personal preference. Ensure the base of the tile is completely supported when bedded in, i.e no hollow spots.
Sealing the tiles:
We recommend Conseal/Gripseal for this purpose. It is a non toxic, indoor and outdoor water based sealer. The sealer can be applied with a brush, sponge or sponge roller. Give the tiles one coat of sealer before laying. This prevents any cement residue staining the tiles on the surface when doing the grouting. It is not necessary to pre-seal the complete batch of tiles prior to laying. Do 20 – 30 at a time while the job is in progress as the sealer absorbs within minutes. On completion of the area allow to dry and apply one more coat to the tiles and the grouting. The result is a beautiful rich, non maintenance floor.
