• Industry standard recommends adding on 5-10% additional tile to account for waste, special cuts, or other unforeseen problems. It is recommended to revise measurements and tile quantities with an expert installer.

Care and Considerations:

• Unique, irregular, functional and expressive. Saltillo tiles vary in texture, they have chipped edges, craters, and from time to time you may run into tiles with animal tracks. A high percentage of the batches of Saltillo tiles are subject to "lime pops". Craters or lime pops are caused by alkaline deposits, these are usually inhibited and may be stopped by sealing the tile with a penetrating sealer. Sealers penetrate into the lime pocket, demystifying it, keeping water out and therefore preventing the lime pop.

• Clean with mild cleanser and damp cloth, do not use abrasive cleaners.

• Do not use abrasive cleaners, acids or bleaches.
