If you are planning on using crackle glaze tiles in a kitchen or bathroom then we reccomend sealing them with LTP Crackle Glaze Sealer. For more information about sealing crackle glaze tiles please see our how to guide here.

Most tilers will recommend ordering 10% extra to allow for cuts and wastage but this may vary depending on the job. We would always advise that your tiler verifies measurements and quantities prior to ordering.

We have a section on our website which only include tiles which have been certified for use outdoors. You can find them in our Outdoor Living section.

No, you can order the exact amount of tiles you need and do not have to order by the box. Our warehouse staff will break down boxes so you are sent exactly what you need. Some items on our site are sold by the box. These products will be highlighted when ordering.

Rectified tiles are ceramic or porcelain tiles that have gone through a process of machining the edges to give the tile a perfect straight edge. This allows you to butt the tiles together with no need for grout resulting in a cleaner look.

The size stated on all our products are the size that the goods are manufactured to - they are nominal sizes. This means that due to the manufacturing process and nature of tiles, the exact sizes cannot be manufactured consistently and different batches of the same tile can vary in size, as much as 5mm, which is a widely accepted tolerance within the industry. The clay is cut prior to being fired and during the curing process they will shrink. The amount they shrink will vary every time this process happens so the factories introduced a Calibre number as a guide for the size. If you are looking to top up your order we recommend stating the Batch and Calibre number so we can try and match them for you. Due to stock rotation we cannot guarantee to match the calibre and batch on top up orders.

Do You Have a Showroom?Unfortunately we do not have a showroom. However, we offer a click and collect service. If you require help choosing tiles please contact our customer services team on 01752 785623 or via email [email protected]

We do not advise using a dark or contrasting grout with any of our lighter shades of crackle glaze tiles. It can result in the pigment of the grout settling in the crackles on the face of the tile which is often not a desired look. The LTP Crackle Glaze Sealer is made to prevent water from entering the crackles and will not stop the grout from becoming lodged in the face of the tile. Please call our team on 01752 785623 for more information on this issue if needed.
