Refund Policy

Material Disclaimer

Variations in color, shade, and markings are inherent in clay, stone and glass products. Any question of acceptability of the product must be resolved BEFORE installation. seattletiledirect.com is not responsible for determining the appropriate usage of the material purchased. You are responsible to inspect material upon pick up (direct shipping is not available). Do not accept material you believe to be incorrect and/or damaged. Any damage or incorrect material should be reported to seattletiledirect.com within 2 days. It is your responsibility to determine the quantity and types of tile to order. seattletiledirect.com will not accept overages or be responsible for shortages.

Shade Variation

Due to variations in digital displays, the tile appearance (including color, texture, and size) shown on this website may vary computer to computer and from screen to reality. Photos are for representational purposes only. In addition, tiles are manufactured in batches called "lots". These lots may vary slightly in color/size/texture, etc. The same lot may not be available when placing add-on orders. We encourage you to see samples from a current lot before purchasing.

Before installation has begun, seattletiledirect.com suggests that your tile setter lay out pieces from multiple boxes, arrange to achieve desired effect, and receive written approval from the homeowner/customer. This is especially important for natural stones and natural stone looks.

Full Boxes

All "field tile" from seattletiledirect.com is sold in full-carton containers. This is to ensure proper packaging and to cut down on breakage during handling. It reduces wait time when picking up directly at our vendor warehouses and decreases the chance of error when pulling the appropriate quantity. It is not possible to divide full boxes, and no returns will be accepted of overage resulting from required full box purchases. The rest of the products on seattletiledirect.com are by the piece. This means that most mosaics are sold by the single sheet, but not all sheets are equal to 1 square foot. Divide desired number of square feet by coverage of a sheet to get your number of pieces. Please consult your installer for final quantities. seattletiledirect.com does not provide quantity calculation services.

Processing Times

seattletiledirect.com will process orders, follow up on stock check requests, and respond to our customer's questions Monday-Friday 9AM-5PM PST in the order received. Allow at least 2 business days for us to get back to you about any inquiry made.

Once an order is placed, allow 2-3 business days for our vendors to receive, process, and respond regarding shipping times and/or pickup etas. Read more below.

Pickups and Lead Times

seattletiledirect.com will arrange for direct pickup of materials at a Seattle area vendor. The items may be transferred in from out of town. It is always your responsibility to check over materials for accuracy, but pay special attention to the color, the quantity, even the size, as our vendors have busy warehouses and details can be overlooked. If you can catch a mistake in-warehouse, that saves you and our vendors a lot of time. No one from seattletiledirect.com will be present to help inspect your order.

No expedited orders are available through seattletiledirect.com. If you need your order faster than 3 weeks, contact us first to request a stock check.

Our vendors provide an estimated lead time which will be shared with the customer on request, but this is never a guaranteed time frame. Delays in transit occur frequently that are not within control.

Handmade Disclaimer

seattletiledirect.com sells products made to look and perform like handmade tiles. The characteristics of handmade tile may include more irregular edges, watery glazes, crackle finish, and variation in color from tile to tile. These are intentional and are considered qualities of the handmade look. As is true with all manufactured products, they are produced in batches called "lots" and may not be the same from one order to the next. Take care to order enough material as a second batch may not match the first.

Natural Stone Disclaimer

Natural stones include marble, travertine, slate, limestone, etc., and have been used in construction and decor since the beginning of humanity. They are prized for their organic veins, marks, texture, sheen, etc. Because they are mined directly from the earth, be aware that the products you receive will not be exactly the same from piece to piece. Each material will have different degrees of this variation. Some will be so minute that you cannot see it and others can be so drastic that they may not even look like the same material. These materials are porous to varying degrees, and while some are highly resistant to staining and scratching they are all subject to both. Sealing and cleaning with the proper materials are necessary to maintaining the integrity of natural stone.
