PORCELAIN/CERAMIC TILES
Are man made/kiln fired products and can inherit the following traits upon manufacture:
1. Variation in shade, sizes, shape, colour, thickness, finish and grain.
TRIO CERAMICA PTY LTD will not refund or replace product based on the above as these factors are out of our control. Any variations or issues that occur outside of Australian standards will be assessed and addressed on a case by case basis only.
Porcelain/Ceramic Tiles: 1% Sizing variation, 0.5% Curve variation, 0.5% Side straightness variation allowed.
All polished and semi polished porcelain are subject to “Optical Hazing/Crazing/Fine cracks”. This does not affect the technical performance of the product, nor a fault.

NATURAL STONE
No natural stone will be warranted. Natural Stone is a product sourced from the earth and cannot be replicated or reproduced to match a prior batch. Variations in colour, vein, finish, size and thickness can be expected. Variation within a natural product is a feature not a fault.
Correct sealant and care is required prior and post installation with all stones. This is at the responsibility of the installer and Customer/End user.
Natural Stone Variation Standards: 10% in Sizing & Thickness.

MOSAICS
Mosaics can be factory or hand sheeted. Due to the small sizes of some of the pieces it is expected that chipping/cracking may occur, this can be more or less noticeable upon grouting. Excessive chipping will need to be inspected by TRIO CERAMICA PTY LTD to determine if it is a manufacturer fault.
Glass mosaics are open to chipping within the manufacturing process. This can be between 5-9% per sheet. This being present does not entitle client to refund, return or credit.

HAND MADE TILES
Handmade or Hand painted tiles will have common occurring dents, chips and uneven thickness and sizes. This is a feature of the product, not a fault. Colour and painted strokes will be different in every tile, as per its feature.

CUSTOM SIZING
If custom sizing is requested, factory/labour and shipping costs will be charged to the customer.
As with regular Tiles/Natural Stone, sizing variation will also occur during this secondary cutting process.
