Ordering Your Tiles

Please note the importance of ordering the correct amount of tiles for your project.  You will need to order more than the job requires, allowing for wastage and any breakages.

Wastage is created on all projects and depending on the layout can be 2% – 20%.  Basically, any tile off-cut not large enough to re-use becomes wastage and the total amount has to be allowed for when ordering your tiles.  As a rule, the bigger the tile - the greater the wastage but diagonal layouts and same directional patterns create wastage.  Let us or your supplier assist in calculating this percentage. 

Always remember its far better to have tiles left over which can be stored and used for future replacements, than to run out before the work is complete.  Having to re-order extra tiles can cause problems with size and colour variation if the same batch of tiles are no longer available.

Before receiving your tiles, please ensure a dry, accessible storage place has been prepared and upon delivery remember to look for any obvious signs of damage and check that all quantities and batch numbers are correct.

Tile Calculator

Simply choose your tile length from the top section and the the width down the left hand section.  Where the two columns cross calculates the number of tiles needed per sqmtr.

For example if you choose a 333mm x 333mm tile, you would require 9.00 tiles for each sqmtr.  A 20 sqmtr project would require 180 tiles , divide this amount by 12 pieces per box = 15 boxes.
