RETURN AND REFUNDS
30 day Money back Guarantee
- Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade, finish, etc. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes when installing. Natural stones may be characterized by dry seams and pits that are often filled. The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer. After installation, vendor disclaims any liabilities.
- All orders are inspected prior to shipment. Returns will only be accepted based on an RMA (returns material authorization form). No returns will be accepted without an RMA. Please contact us to obtain a RMA number at . RMA can take up to 2-3 days.
- Returns will not be accepted for any item that has been sorted/culled through.
- If a product is received damaged or missing, please contact us immediately via email but not later than 48 hours. It is not unusual to have 5% - 7% of the tiles broken, such as chipped edges, to some degree during transit. Any amount up to 10% is still considered acceptable. These damaged tiles can be used for the cuts you will need to make. If the breakage is above 10%, we would ask you to have it noted on the logistics receiving document and take pictures.

The product photos and installations are chosen with the utmost responsibility to correctly represent the product but are representational only. Samples are always recommended.
- All products, whether Natural stone, Glass or Porcelain, are subject to color variations. For natural stone and mosaics, variations should be expected as the product is a natural stone and the mosaics are hand made by local artisans.
