Natural stone is a product of nature and is therefore subject to natural variations of color, shading, veins, markings and texture from piece to piece. The typical variation of a stone is dependent upon the type of stone selected. No claims will be accepted after materials are fabricated or installed. We extend no guarantees; expressed or implied, as to slipperiness, wear resistance or maintenance procedures. All natural stone is subject to some wearing or scratching over time.  

www.calcattatile.com is not a contractor & does not perform or contract for the installation of any product. www.calcattatile.com shall not assume responsibility nor shall it be liable for a contractor’s work or the installation of any of its products. Absent any specific instructions, generally accepted industry guidelines must be adhered to, including, but not limited to, Tile Council of North America Handbook & Marble Institute of America Dimensional Stone Design Manual.

Samples are offered to help our customers make better decisions by seeing the item(s) in person for approval. These orders are not considered as actual orders. We very highly recommend that you get a sample of a product before committing to a large order. Natural stone products have quite a bit of variation in terms of colors, shading, finish, texture, etc.; regardless of which product you choose or where you get the items from. Therefore, it is always the best for you to personally get a sample and approve it before placing an actual order.

ALL SAMPLES are NON-RETURNABLE. We only charge a small fee for our samples to cover our shipping expenses on these samples.


All items are subject availability at the time of shipping. If a certain item is not available, we reserve the right to offer an alternate material with prior notification and notice to the buyer.

Immediately upon delivery, please inspect your tiles for accuracy of materials ordered, including quality, color and quantity. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to inspect all merchandise prior to installation.


Any questions regarding the color, design or quality of tiles must be resolved prior to installation. Use constitutes acceptance and absolutely no adjustments or returns will be made thereafter. Any and all questions regarding acceptability must be resolved within 30 days of the date of delivery.

Installation of product is deemed acceptance of product and www.calacattatile.com shall not be liable for, and will not recognize, claims made after the start of the installation including claims of incorrect product; claims of incorrectly sized, colored, shaded, calibrated, or packaged product; claims of product not matching prior shipments; and/or any other product claims.

www.calacattatile.com shall not be responsible for improper installation of products. Material should be installed by pulling from all pallets or cartons to insure optimal blending of shade variation. We recommend that you order 5 to 10% extra to use for cuts and attic stock for future repairs.

Any additions or changes to the original order could delay the delivery date and may result in dye lot variation. We cannot guarantee color or shade matching from shipment to shipment.

Before being “set” all tiles must be “viewed and shuffled” by way of a dry layout. There is a natural range of color, veins and/or fossils that is inherent in this material and in order to get the proper mix, this viewing and shuffling process is imperative. Failure to follow this procedure could leave you with range of shades that do not properly flow together. Before setting any tile you must test your stone using the setting systems and sub-flooring systems you have selected for the project. To do this, a test patch must be made. This will assure you that you will be satisfied with the finished look of the product.

  • You must use moisture sensitive thin set for all white marble to prevent water stains, or bleeding.
  • Water must be clean. Use premium white thin set otherwise.
  • You must open all the boxes and dry lay all the material to blend in before installation for customer approval.
  • Extra material must be ordered for waste, cuts and material selection. We recommend minimum 10% for regular cuts and as much as 30% for diagonal cuts.
  • Natural stone color, veining, and character varies. Samples represent only general characteristics of the quarry. There is variation from shipment to shipment and within each shipment.
  • If your job requires more than one crate, it is your responsibility to blend the crates to make sure it will be accepted by your client.
  • If you order additional material, it is your responsibility to make sure it matches the current lot.
  • You must use grout release or sealer before grouting.
  • We recommend at least a 1/8” joint in all installations to prevent expansion and contracting.
  • Natural stone is a product of nature and it may have minor imperfections, pits, holes, fill etc. These are considered inherent characteristics of natural stone.
