Frequently Asked Questions


How do I order by phone?

You can call us at 1-888-848-4537 to place your order over the phone.

Do I need to order extra tile for waste?

We recommend ordering a 5-10% overage depending on how much cutting you will be making on the tile.

Do I have to order by the box?

Most products have a minimum order of 1 box which is typically 10-15 tiles. After you place the minimum you can order whatever quantity you need. If you need a couple more tiles to finish a project just give us a call to place your order so we can waive the minimum. You will need your previous order number.

Do you do custom blends/colors?

We do have the ability to manufacture a custom glass blend or color. There is a minimum order of 1 pallet which ranges from 480-528 sq ft depending on the product. The lead time is approximately 3 months.

Pebble Tile Questions

Are the pebble tiles comfortable to walk on?

Definitely, in fact many customers say that they are very therapeutic and say it is like having a shiatsu foot massage.

Can you use the pebble tiles in high traffic areas?

Yes. They have been used extensively in hotels and restaurants and our oldest installation is 15 years old in a Hyatt hotel sushi bar.

Can they be used on a fireplace surround?

Because the product is real stone it is perfect for fireplaces

Can they be used on a pool or patio?

Definitely, we have done installations for entire pool surfaces, pool liners and pool decks.

Can they be used for a counter top or outdoor barbeque area?

Yes. Our only recommendation is to make sure you seal the stones and the grout so as to avoid staining and making clean up easier. Depending on use, you may want to reapply sealers once a year.

Installation Questions?

Visit our installation page to see detailed installation guidelines for all our products.


Do the stones need to be sealed?

Yes. The pebble, tumbled marble, and marble mosaic tiles need to be sealed before they are grouted to prevent grout haze, and once after to seal the whole installation. We recommend a company called Miracle Sealants. They offer a basic stone sealer as well as a 511 Enhancer.

What type of grout should I use for my installation?

For the glass tiles you will need to use an unsanded grout. This prevents scratching on the surface of the glass. For the stone tiles you will need to use a sanded grout. For both grout types we recommend Custom Building Products, which you can find at most home improvement stores.

How do I cut the glass tile?

To cut the glass tile you will need to use a wet saw with a brand new diamond blade.
