Buy Cheap Buy Twice - An Old Adage Which Applies to Tiles Too

by Stacey 22. June 2014 06:45
Cheapest is more often than not the best policy when buying anything. This is especially the case when it comes to natural stone tiles. Good common sense and a thought process that can evaluate wether or not somebody can really sell something for that little and still stay in business is only part of your due diligence when it comes to buying anything. Natural stone tiles are manufactured in different grades for different prices. It is inevitable that some people will pass off sub-standard goods as premium grade given the opportunity - we are not one of them. Our guaranteed independent feedback proves this time and time again. Come and visit yourself to be 100% sure! [More]

Travertine - Its as popular as ever!

by Mark 4. September 2013 06:56
Travertine sales have been on the increase of late even though there’s been many more traders entering the market. Due to its generic nature (travertine is mined from hundreds of diffreent quarries whereas particular marbles and limestone’s only come from one place) it's easy for those less scrupulous traders to market tiles as "premium grade" material when it’s not. Be sure you buy from a trusted supplier, like stonesuperstore. We've been importing travertine for many years and have the experience to make sure you get the best products for the best prices!

What did the romans ever do for us?

by Mark 1. August 2013 12:09
Well, they invented underfloor heating for one thing, apart from roads, sanitation etc. Here's an article about the benefits of underfloor or undertile heating. Natural stone tiles really do benefit from this especially in the winter months. If you are doing a natural stone floor, then we strongly recommend installing underfloor heating at the same time. You won’t regret it! [More]
