Product Claims

Please verify that your order confirmation is correct. Variations in shade, color, and size are inherent of all burnt clay materials, and glazed tile is subject to crazing, and are not grounds for claim once installed. Furthermore, variations in shade, size and finish can vary from a previous shipment or from sample boards Tierra Sol may have previously distributed.

Of rectangular tile, Tierra Sol Ceramic Tile Inc. does not recommend a 50-50 brick pattern, nor will we accept any claims pertaining to this.

Of glass and stone mosaics, testing the installation technique, grouting and finishing, cutting, checking squareness of the sheets, and generally being fully aware of the characteristics of the mosaics being installed and the setting materials being used is required prior to commencing the job. Small chips, shade variations, size variations, and mounting squareness are all expected and normal characteristics of mosaics and are not considered grounds for claim.

No guarantee is made against wear. All tile will scratch and wear and it should be expected in areas of heavy traffic. Degree of wear is a function of maintenance and abrasion. Tierra Sol Ceramic Tile Inc. cannot be responsible for failures resulting from tiles being installed in areas where they are not suitable. Wear will be apparent sooner on light or white colored tile.

All packing information stated in the current price list is subject to change without notice.

The buyer is responsible for inspecting and accepting materials before it leaves Tierra Sol's warehouse, as well as with the final customer before it is installed. No claim will be accepted for damaged material once it has left our warehouse. Method of installation and site conditions are beyond our control and no claim will be accepted for chipping, crazing, spalling, etching, cracking, discoloration, or loosening from the setting bed. If our products are unsatisfactory for any reason, we must be notified before installation. No allowance will be made for labor costs or any other charges after materials have been installed.

Statement of Responsibility: Before using, the user shall determine the suitability of the product for its intended use and alone assumes full responsibility and all liability in connection therewith.

Certain "Builder Grade" floor tiles, particularly non-rectified tiles, are supplied in accordance with the quality controls to which they are produced. Tierra Sol will accept claims for side length variation greater than 1mm, measured on the face of the tile, or if the tile is out of square. In such a case, return of the tile will be accepted without restocking charge. The installer retains responsibility to accept quality prior to installation.
