* Size and shade variation are inherent in all ceramic tiles. 
  Check the tiles and ensure of matching shades & sizes before laying.
* No complains will be entertained about the tile after laying




TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR LAYING TILES

1. Surface should be cleaned properly before installation.
2. Tiles should be segregated according to batch no. & manufacturing date.
3. Dry fixing:lay the tiles in the desired pattems, shades and signs etc. before final laying.
4. Fixing by good quality tile-adhesive or with 1:4 cement & sand mortar.
5. Use of 2 to 5 mm SPACERS is recommended.
6. Do not use an iron hammer or some heavy material to press the tiles.
7. After 48 hours for bed curing, fill the joints with desired grouts.
8. Clean tiles with detergent powder or soap.
9. Cover the surface with plastic sheet / POP until it becomes ready for use.
