Skalini water jet tiles may be susceptible to scratching in handling, installation and use. Expect a slight color variation from production run to production run.
Always inspect your tiles before they are installed, as installation of material constitutes acceptance. Any questions as to acceptability must be resolved before installation. Mir Mosaic is in no way responsible for the installation of our tiles or thereafter. The responsibility for correct installation rests with the end user.
Particular care should be taken to use the correct adhesive, grout and sealants. The installer is responsible for choosing and using the correct installation practices to achieve an acceptable finished product. Mir Group, Inc. is in no way responsible for the damages caused to the mosaic by the wrong setting material or grout.
We recommend installing stones over a clean, sound, and flat concrete or mortar substrate with a steel trowel and fine broom finish. The surface should be free of contaminates or any condition that could compromise the bond of the tile.
Sealing is an essential step in protecting the beauty and ensuring longevity of any tiles. Grout joint should be packed full and free of all voids and pits. Excess grout should be cleaned from the stone surface as the work progresses, before the grout hardens. Cure grout per grout manufacturer’s instructions.
