Quality Description

Quality description of our products.

GENERALLY

Our products are all hand made or made of natural materials and the variation in color and texture is natural. Variation between different lots and deliveries is part of the products. We try to showcase our products in showroom and pictures, but when it's natural products, it's important that you as a customer are aware that there are variations between different parties and broadcasts. The stone is a finite product and different stone blocks have different characteristics. We see this as the charm of our products. Each interior is unique.

Never choose a color for your interior until you have your Stiltje material in place.

LIMESTONE

Stone is a natural product and color and texture can vary between different plates. On the tumbled and antique treated floors this is the meaning and the variations between different plates can be large. We at Stiltje never sort the floors but do you want a customer to have a certain limit in variety, we can help you in choosing a product or that you choose to buy for extra quantity of sqm to sort yourself. Note that no plates are taken in return.

The tumbled and antique treated floors may also vary in thickness depending on the manufacturing process and the specified thickness may vary +/- 4 mm.

The fine-grid floors vary in color between different shipment. Make sure you have a sample of the shipment that is available for delivery. Stylish stone has no bevelled edges as we think it is more beautiful and provides narrower joints. However, this means that there are small gaps in the edges.

SLATE

Variation in color strokes is natural here. We at Stiltje never sort the floors but do you want a customer to have a certain limit in variety, we can help you in choosing a product or that you choose to buy for extra quantity of sqm to sort yourself. Note that no plates are taken in return.

Slate is by nature a stone that when mined varies in thickness. Our sharpened slates are calibrated around 12 mm but variation in thickness is natural. The tiles can also have notches in the edges and small notches in the tile, which is natural for the slate. The split slates are also calibrated around 12mm but vary more in thickness and should be laid in more fix. The wider joint (we recommend 10 mm) is used here to even out variations in height between the tiles.

We kindly ask you to look at our pictures on the respective skiffs to get a picture of its nature so you will not be disappointed when the stone comes home.

The split skirts can have loose tiles, these usually go away in handling, but if there is anything left after joining, we recommend removing these with a hard brush or similar before final finishing.

BRICK

The handmade tile floors vary slightly in color between different burns. Reclaimed floors vary in color between different plates and the handles vary in color within the plate.

Reclaimed tile floors can vary in size quite a bit between different tiles. We recommend for these at least 10 mm joints. Reclaimed is made of old recycled brick and here are also notches in the edges and pits some of the tiles, remnants of cement can be found on the back of the tile .. We think this is part of the charm and the floors become very beautiful when they are laid .

The handmade tile floors are better calibrated and without this "natural" charm. We recommend for these at least 6 mm joints.

A Mano brick is fully handmade and hand-burned. The variation between different parties and the INOM party in color can be large. This brick has a lot of "defects" and nibbles. The brick should be so.

CEMENT FLOORS

Handmade and the pigments are hand-mixed. Variations in color occur within a batch but first and foremost between different batches. It is very important to order the correct amount of flooring when ordering. In addition, there will be different lots and the variation in color can be quite large.

It is not advisable to choose colors for interior decoration based on a test plate, as the tone of the floor that is then delivered may differ from that. We recommend that you wait until you have the floor in place.

Thin cuts can be found in the plate but are harmless when the floor is in place. There is movement between the layers or in the underlying plate that creates these cracks.

Salta flakes are found but sanded with fine sandpaper.

KALKFÄRG and TADELAKT

All our colors are blended by hand with pigment and variation occurring. If you have many small jars of the same color, we recommend that you mix them together if possible. Otherwise try not to change the jar in the middle of a wall. Differences may occur between the sample patch you received and the final painting when the sample is painted because of this.

The final color of the Kalk color also depends on the substrate and technology. Before you paint the entire room makes a test area to be absolutely sure that you are satisfied with the result. The color is significantly darker in the can and before it dries than the final color.

Tadelakt varies a lot depending on who does the job. Also make a sample slice on the board to make sure you are satisfied before you start the whole room. Please send us a picture to discuss the results of the test before the whole room begins.

KITEL and MOSAIK

Stylish tiles are more or less handmade and the color always varies between different shipments. Never choose color on your interior before you just have your tiles in place. Our Original tiles have more or less cracking in the surface, and cracking can also occur after molding. This is because the icicle's glaze is so thick and something that is natural for these products.

Please read our assembly instructions for tiles prior to assembly.

STILTJE BALI CEMENT

has a very fine-grained surface that is sensitive to movement in the material and the cement is to be set with ARDEX X32. This plate also has natural hairline cracks in itself that are normal for the floor. Hard crevices can also occur after laying on motion in the material. Read the instructions carefully before placing this plate.

Style The cement varies in thickness between different tiles depending on the fabrication and can be +/- 4 mm

Zellige

Zelle plates are very uneven in both size and equilibrium. The tile is cut and chips are often missing. The tile must be in this way and it is NOT a reason for complaint. We do NOT take in return individual tiles only whole lots. Zellig should be laid with a thin joint and will be a little uneven but beautiful. Look on the website what the result looks like on an entire wall. In the shop we have chosen narrow joints. This floor is impossible to get completely even in the laying and that is not the intention either. Added to ARDEX X32.
