HOW TO BUY MEXICAN PAVERS
Before you buy your tile, ask to see the current stock. Your supplier should have enough material in stock to indicate the quality of material you will receive. It is not ordinary to choose and collate pallets. You must always mix and blend the lot of Saltillo you receive. The pallets should be all made in the same way, indicating that the material comes from a single manufacturer.
If you buy boxed material, be careful to ask what the return policy is, in case you get home and open the boxes, and the material is bad. Mexican Tile Saltillo is packaged in open crates so you can see what you’re buying. Quality of tile from different suppliers varies drastically. Check to see the uniformity of size and thickness within the pallets.
Up to a ¼ inch variations of size is not uncommon in Saltillo tile. Check the color variation of the tile…unless your tile is Moreno, the color should vary from peach to buff throughout all of the stock (indicating that the tile was properly fired.) Look for damaged material.
When planning to use Saltillo tile, place your order before you actually need the tile. In this way, you will have it when you need it, or at least you will know when it will be available if it is not in stock. When your tile is delivered, examine it before installing it and call about any concerns that you might have. It’s much easier to address a concern when it’s not attached to a floor!
Unless you plan to install your own Saltillo tile, let your licensed tile contractor purchase the material. He will then be responsible for it throughout the entire job, and you will know exactly how much everything will cost.
