You may opt-out of any emails from us at any time, except for emails related to contributions received by us, by following the instructions contained in those emails or updating your own internet, email, or account settings.
Links from the Website
The Website may contain links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, including but not limited to links contained in advertisements, banner advertisements and sponsored links. We have no control over the content of third-party sites or resources, and accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. If you decide to access any of the third-party websites linked to our Website, you do so entirely at your own risk and subject to the terms and conditions of use on such websites.
Order Confirmation and Shipping
We will email you to confirm the placement of your order and share details concerning product delivery. In the event that there is an error regarding your order within this email confirmation, it is your responsibility to inform us of the error within 2 days of delivery of the email to your inbox.
We do our best to describe and display the products that we offer as accurately as possible. However, please do not accept that the Website is entirely accurate, current, or error-free.
Product dimensions are sometimes converted to inches and feet from manufacturer units of measurement. When using our Website, whether for informational purposes or to place orders, you consent that you understand that dimension conversions are rounded.
Dimensions of a mosaic mesh include the spaces between individual pieces on a mesh. The listed square footage of such pieces incorporates these spaces as part of the total square footage.
Samples are final sale. We do not issue returns on samples.
We reserve the right to stop offering any of our products at our discretion. You are not guaranteed to be able to make purchases of previously purchased products at any point in the future.
We may make changes or correct errors in pricing when necessary. Your shopping cart will reflect the most up-to-date price. Prices exclude shipping and handling charges, which will be calculated at checkout. Sales tax may be applied where applicable.
Price held in shopping cart does not reserve that price for the product at that time. Prices are reserved only after an order is submitted. A previous order does not guarantee a price for any future orders of the same product.
In the case that there is mispricing, Tile Estate will: charge you the lower price if the item’s correct price is lower than stated, or contact you for instructions if the correct price of an item is higher than stated. We reserve the right to cancel an order in the event of mispricing.
We make great efforts to bring you the most high-quality, accurate images, to help you envision what the product of your choice will look like. However, we strongly encourage you to order a sample of any piece before you place a full order, so that you inspect what the true tile looks like. You should not rely on images alone to determine how tile will appear within a space. Factors such as lighting, grout color, other products within the space, and quality of installation can affect how the final installation looks.
We cannot guarantee that the image color that you see on your electronic device will exactly match the color that you see when you receive the tile. Color can change significantly from one electronic screen to another depending upon your device and settings.
Our installation images (meaning images of tile within an interior space) are meant to help you imagine how the tile looks on a wall. We hope that these images will be helpful to you in making your product selection. However, you should view these images as suggested examples, not as an indication of exactly how you should expect your final installation to look.
Most orders will ship via a carrier with curbside delivery only. You will be contacted by the carrier to arrange a delivery time. You must provide contact information, including phone number and email, at which you can be reached to arrange delivery and to accept the delivery on the delivery day. You must accept and inspect the shipment when it is delivered.
Should you choose to grant permission to a party other than yourself to accept and inspect your delivery, you must ensure that that the third party is reachable via the contact information that you provide to us, to arrange delivery and to accept and inspect the goods. Tile Estate is not responsible for any error, misjudgment, or oversight made by person(s) appointed by you to accept and inspect deliveries.
Claims for damaged product must be submitted within five days of delivery of the product. If no claim is received within five days, it is understood and agreed that you are satisfied with the product.
To create a damage claim, email firstname.lastname@example.org with ALL of the following information (claims will not be considered complete unless all information is included):
Item SKU number
Date of delivery
Number of pieces damaged
Photos of all damaged pieces
Telephone number where you can be reached
Damage claims will not be accepted for product that is already installed.
Tile is a highly breakable product, and regardless of how well it is packed, up to 5% breakage is an industry standard. If under 5% of tile in your order is chipped or broken, we will not issue a damage claim for the order. The broken pieces can often be used for edges or fills during installation.
Some variation/imperfection among pieces of tile is an intrinsic part of these products. Such as:
-Slight variations in size
-Slight variations in color
-Imperfection in tile edges
We will not honor damage claims for such variation.
Some tiles, such as natural stone, vary significantly in color and appearance from one piece to the next, as you would expect various parts of a stone to vary. If a piece includes a SHADE VARIATION warning on the product page, damage claims will not be accepted because of variations in color and design from piece to piece.
Some tiles come in collections of several different patterns that are meant to be mixed and matched when installed. If a product has a VARIED PRINTS warning on the product page, we do not have control over the variety of patterns in each box, and we cannot accept claims because you dislike some of the patterns included.
Dimensions and other specifications are furnished to TileEstate by the manufacturer. In the event of damage claims due to incorrect product information, the manufacturer may be held liable for the refund. In this case, we may have to wait on the manufacturer to issue the refund.
If you would like to return an item (not due to damage), you must request a return within 30 days of delivery of that product. To request a return, please email email@example.com with ALL of the following information (requests will not be considered complete unless all information is included):
Item SKU number
Date of delivery
Reason for return
Number of boxes returning
Telephone number, where you can be reached
Tile Estate will respond to your return request with an authorization to return. Do not ship products without the authorization.
Unless otherwise indicated returns are accepted for full boxes only. Tile Estate will not accept returns of partial boxes or individual pieces.
There will be a 25% restocking fee on all returns.
Customer must arrange and pay for shipping on returns.
Returns will not be accepted if they arrive damaged. They must arrive in the same condition as sent, in the original packaging.
We will only issue refunds on returns after goods are received by us in satisfactory condition. The restocking fee will be deducted from the return funds.
