INSTALLATION & SEALING
Do I need to seal the tiles? If yes, how often?
Yes, our handmade cement tiles need sealing. We provide the following sealants that you can add to your order. We recommend to reseal your tiles once a year, however this depends on area and wear.
Can the tiles be installed in bathrooms including shower areas?
Yes, as long as the tiles are sealed.
If installed on a shower floor, care must be taken that they are cleaned only with mild soap and the occasional scrub with a Scotch-Brite pad. Acidic or harsh chemical cleaners, which are sometimes used to clean soap buildup from a shower floor, can damage the tiles. Also, cement tiles are slippery when wet (although ours are approved even for commercial installations).
Can the tiles be installed outdoors?
Our tiles can be installed outdoors as long as the tiles are sealed and installed with frost proof grout and adhesives. Please also note that colors such as green, blue, red and yellow will bleach with time due to the UV.
Can the tiles be installed with underfloor heating?
Yes, cement tiles have excellent thermal mass and are sublime with a radiant heat floor. When installing over radiant heat, we recommend a larger grout joint (3-4mm). Also, the grout material should be flexible. This will allow for some natural expansion/contraction of the heated floor without cracking the tiles.
Please also note that we recommend to wait at least 10-12 weeks before put into use.
Can the tiles be installed in commercial spaces?
Yes, as long as the tiles are sealed. Highly important that the maintenance instructions is followed, acidic or harsh chemical cleaners are not recommended.
How do I cut your cement tiles? Can I order tiles that already are cut?
The tiles can be cut with an angle grinder or a wet saw. No, sorry we are not able to assist in this matter.
What colour should the grout be?
Please install the tiles with products suitable for natural stone. We recommend light/medium grey colored grout and strongly advise against colored, black and white grout.
How do I care for my cement tiles?
One of the benefits with cement tiles is that will become more beautiful with time and therefore is it of importance to maintain the tiles. We recommend to clean the tiles regularly with neutral/colourless soap or Natural Stone & Porcelain aftercare cleaner (which can be purchased from us). We advise against products that contains blech or acids.
Please note; even tiles that is sealed are sensitive to different kinds of acids. Coffee, citrus fruits
and vinegar are examples of what can cause stains to the tiles if not cleaned promptly.
How do I store my tiles?
Please store your tiles in a dry and frost free environment.
