How do you get your Brilliant White so White?

Believe me it is not the detergent (they are always seem to be showing ads or commercials about white, whites). ¬†So thought I would just throw that in ūüôā

What makes Brilliant White glass Tiles so white is a great question.  I have looked on Houzz.com and on the internet and it seems that people are really struggling with this, it really is sad. I see a lot of questions and concerns online.  So as someone with decades of glass tile experience and having worked on the floor above a glass tile kiln I thought I might share.

Let me take you on a little journey though my brief history to explain why Brilliant white glass tile is so Brilliant white. So that when it goes on a bloggers well known site with tens of ...

White Oak Marble Trims, Mosaics and More

White Oak Marble 1x3At last! ¬†I have been waiting for this 1×3″ Herringbone in White Oak Marble for $12.95 a Square Foot and Free Shipping¬†(maybe extend it into Jan – please accounting).

You can see the difference in the price from current mosaics and Free shipping is a real bonus. The price from our current Basketweave that has a bevel (which is not easy on a floor underfoot). I like some things rounded and the 3D must add some design cost. But it does seem a rather expensive OTT option. Here is the 3D Basketweave. (that price knocks me over every time, actually I can no longer look at it, it is over $20+).

For people who want a Basketweave option with 3D then great ...

Recent Review and Thank you!

Customer Review

This review (so I wanted to share) came through the other day (we are actually the only 5 out of 5 star seller in the USA of marble tile) which when you read this and the effort Ben in customer service went to you can see why.  It was not a small purchase either in the thousands of dollars so I can see why the customer would be apprehensive.

You can send an email to sales@thebuilderdepot.com¬†or call the sales team a call 800-308-9359 from 9am to 4pm EST (if you are not sure either). They can help.
