Your order will be stacked and delivered on a pallet. The pallets are delivered on a lorry with a tail lift (Not a reach arm) so they will leave the pallets as close to the delivery point as they can i.e. reverse up a drive or leave on the front of the house. If they wheel the pallets along, they need a flat surface and cannot wheel along a gravel driveway.

Using Terracotta Tiles
1. Can I use terracotta tiles outdoors?
Yes, To use our handmade Traditional range outside they must be laid on a good solid screed or mortar base and sealed with our Mattstone sealer or similar.They are not guaranteed frost proof as they are a natural product but have a very high frost resistance and have been widely used by past customers for outside use. Some of our machine made ranges are available as guaranteed frostproof. Please note a final sealer still needs to be applied during laying to protect against stains and frost.
2. Do all terracotta tiles need sealing?
Yes, with all terracotta tiles they need sealing for interior and exterior use. We sell all the sealers you will need which are easily applied with brush or paint pad.
3. How do I achieve a Light finish or a darker antique look?
For a light finish you need to seal the tiles with a clear wax or sealer, you can choose a Matt, Satin or Gloss finish. To achieve an antique darker finish you can use boiled linseed oil or a stone oil which darkens the terracotta then seal with either a clear sealer or a clear wax or an antique wax to darken further.
