Terms of Sale
Cement Tiles sold by Rever Tiles are meticulously hand crafted, one at a time, by skilled artisans. Our tiles, like any handmade product, are perfectly imperfect and no two tiles will be the same. The natural components of cement, sand, marble dust and colour pigment are variable in nature, leading to slight variations in shade and tone of each tile. These variations are inherent to hand made cement tiles and are not considered a defect but rather a part of their appeal and should be expected. Additionally, slight variation in thickness, minor irregularity of line-work, edge irregularity / chipping and crazing may be present. These features do not compromise the performance of the tile but rather lend an authentic charm to every installation. Once installed cement tiles will only improve with age and wear and develop a beautiful patina.
When installing, it is important that the tiles are mixed to avoid clusters of shade variation in tiles. Pieces should be selected at random from different boxes. To further minimise variation, it is best to order enough tiles to complete your project, and depending on the area of installation, 10-15% overage.
Our tiles can be installed in a variety of applications, however not all areas are suitable. If values for characteristics such as absorption or slip resistance are required, please contact us in writing before placing an order. Our tiles are slip rated as P3, NATA accredited report is available upon request.
Once you have received your order, please take the time to inspect them (and admire them). Rever Tiles does not accept responsibility or liability for tiles once cut or installed. No claims will be accepted after installation.
