INFO: TILE, TERRAZZO & BREEZE BLOCKS

We offer a range of designs in cement, ceramic, and terrazzo tiles, as well as cement breeze blocks. Our cement tile is produced in Vietnam, our ceramic tile is produced in Mexico, and our terrazzo tile is produced in collaboration with Huguet in Mallorca in Spain. With proper installation, our tiles can be used in a range of different spaces and applications, from kitchens and bathrooms to pools and patios. Please see our tile specifications and installation instructions for more information.

Our cement breeze blocks are produced in Vietnam. Each block is made individually by hand and can be easily painted. Our breeze blocks are suitable for both wet and dry spaces, or can be used to create a statement wall divider either indoors or outdoors.

Lead Time

All our tiles as well as cement breeze blocks, are made-to-order and are final sale. Lead time is approximately 4 to 16 weeks. However, lead times may vary, and delays are possible due to circumstances beyond our control. In the event of a delay, we are not responsible for postponed installation, lost work time, or altered construction timelines. Freight orders must be received by the 15th of each month to be submitted for production. If submitted after the 15th, the order will be added to next month’s production and shipment schedules.

To determine the full shipping costs to your destination, please email us for a customized quote:info@aimeewilder.com. Freight charges calculated at checkout are subject to additional fees based on quantity and/or shipping destination. Express air orders have shorter lead times with a fee of $1600-2200 depending upon order weight.  Any additional shipping charges will be invoiced separately, and must be paid in full before your order is dispatched.  All tile orders are final sale immediately upon purchase.

Samples

Tile samples are available for purchase on the respective AW product pages. Samples are the same size as the tiles in our collections. Occasionally, if we are out of sample stock in a specific color, material, or finish, an alternate sample may be sent along with the requested design. Samples are only for reference to color and scale, and although they are carefully packed, samples may be inadvertently damaged during shipment or may contain fragments of chipped tile. Sample tiles have not been treated with sealer and may show a white effervescence, which either looks like a bit of dust on the surface, or like a halo around the edges. However, any effervescence will be reduced by proper sealing and care. AW does not offer free samples. As with our other products, interior designers and architects may request a few complimentary samples when setting up a trade account — however, for complimentary tiles, the customer is responsible for shipping costs. Sample orders under $100 are shipped via USPS and tracking is not available.

Color Variation, Pattern Matchup & Tile Height

Cement: AW guarantees that the color will vary slightly from tile to tile. This is why cement tiles are used so widelyin creating one-of-a-kind residential and commercial spaces. White effervescence on the surface of the tile is to be expected, but will become less noticeable after a while. IMAGES HERE

Ceramic: Available in both matte and glazed finishes. Some variation in color between individual tiles is to be expected. As with all our handmade tiles, small differences in pattern matchup and/or tile height are also possible. That’s why we recommend mixing tiles from different boxes, in order to spread slight variations evenly throughout the entire installation area. 

Terrazzo:Please expect slight variations in the color and texture of our terrazzo tiles, as well as subtle differences in size and height. 

Breeze Blocks: These architectural breeze blocks are hand-molded in grey cement, ready to be painted. Please expect subtle variations between blocks. 

Tile Storage

Cement & Terrazzo Tile, and Breeze Blocks: Tile is sensitive to moisture before it’s properly sealed with a penetrating sealer. Do not store tiles in moist or damp conditions prior to installation. If your tiles will be stored after receiving your order, please store them appropriately in a dry place not subject to any moisture. The same care should be taken when storing our cement breeze blocks.

Ceramic Tile:Ceramic tiles should be stored in a dry area prior to installation. Moisture or dampness can damage tiles.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

Before opening the first box, please verify that the pattern name, color, and quantity are correct. The customer is responsible for inspecting the order for defects before installation. We are not responsible for damaged or defective tiles reported after 30 days. Please check all tile for defects before installation. If a defect is found after installation has begun, do not install more than 4 square feet of tile. Stop immediately and contact us. Do not continue to install defective material. Minor variations in color, tile height, and pattern matchup are to be expected with any tile, and are not considered defects. Please report any issues within 30 days of delivery. Any returned item that is received by us more than 30 days after the date of purchase will not be accepted and will be returned to you — return shipping charges will apply. Labor claims will not be honored in any way.

Acid Resistance

Cement tiles are not resistant to acids and should be cleaned with pH-neutral cleaners.

Use in Wet Areas

Ahigh-quality sealant must be used for shower, spa, or poolapplications.Cement tiles cannot be used in a pool thatis cleaned with pH-altering products, because cement tiles are not acid-resistant and can only be cleaned with pH-neutral cleaners.

Recommended Installations

Our cement tile is recommended for floor, wall, backsplash, accent, and shower applications. With proper installation, our cement tile can be also used in exterior spaces, including swimming pools in tropical climates. Swimming pool installations require a sealer that will withstand pool chemicals. We do not guarantee resistance to chemicals.

Care Instructions

Use Rust-Oleum Miracle 511 Porous Plus to seal AW cement tiles and grout — apply a minimum of 2 to 3 coats. For cleaning cement tiles, we recommend usingRust-Oleum Miracle Sealants Tile and Stone Cleaner,a non-acidic, anti-bacterial cleaner. When properly maintained, the sealer should have a lifespan comparable to what is advised on the product’s information label. However, the durability of your tile will vary depending on use and traffic. The easiest way to determine if your tile or grout needs to be re-sealed is to spray it lightly with water. If water beads on the surface, the sealer on the tile and/or grout is still in good condition. If the water is absorbed, the sealer should be properly reapplied as soon as possible.

Care Instructions

Our ceramic tiles are low maintenance, durable, and normally require no sealant (except in wet areas, as noted above).

*Can be customized to larger and smaller sizes.
