[slideshow]

So now seems like an appropriate time to show our customers that we are not only have the worlds largest selection of Carrara marble mosaics (the only company with two seperate collections Venato & Bianco) but we also get noticed by the Home Improvement media in particular our Carrara Hexagon mosaic.

Appearing in ‘The Simple Beauty of White’ February issue of Country Living Builders Depot continues it’s ever increasing poularity of premium Carrara marble collections with endorsement of its Traditions in Stone collection of Carrara Venato 1″ Carrara Hexagon mosaic for $10.95SF (Free Shipping as of May 6th 2011)

We were excited to be included in this article but with recognition from the Home Improvement/DIY media comes more opportunity… the Carrara Bianco collection will be shown on an upcoming episode of HGTV’s new show ‘I Hate My Bathroom’ taken from the popular show ‘I Hate my Kitchen’.  Please stay tuned we will post ...

Minimum order the "lengthy explanation" – Marble Tile

Hello and Welcome, you have most likely found this page through a link.  That link was a redirect from an email where you are interested in buying a quantity of marble subway tile or field tile that is less than the minimum order amount. As you read this please note we would love to sell you our marble and it is not that we cannot ship small orders but certain product have shipping issues that make it just too risky.

90% of visitors to this section are here because they want less than 85SF of 3×6” or 100SF of 12×24″.  They need it for a kitchen backsplash.  So we will focus on that.

In this example you need 50SF of 3×6” Carrara Venato/Bianco Subway Tile.  You have either emailed us an enquiry or your order did not go through when you tried to place an order for your 40SF.  The issues:

#1 Shipping:  Why can you just not ship the 50SF?  How do we ship it to you? I apologize for answering a question with a question. Ground or Freight are the options.  Lets explore ground ...

Grout Per Square Foot (just a guide)

These charts show the number of pounds of grout per square foot of the tile needed when a certain size tile and a certain joint width are used. In order to find out how many pound of grout you will need, multiply the number from the table times the number of square feet of tile you will be installing.

For example, a 3/8″ x 3/8″ x 3/8″ tile and a 1/16″ joint width will require 0.94 pounds of grout per square foot. If you are covering an 8′ x 12′ floor, you will need 96 square feet of tile. 0.94 time 96 yields 90 pounds of grout required for the complete job. Based on the packaging available, the correct amount of grout to order would be 100 pounds (four, 25 pound bags).

These charts are based on filling the joint to their full depth, the nominal tile dimensions, and a 10% waste factor. Actual coverage may vary.
