|How Are Some Tiles So Shiny?||Porcelain tiles are a very high-quality variety of ceramic that is so dense it can be polished by special polishing stones to a very high finish.|
|Will Polished Porcelain Be Perfectly Shiny Like A Mirror?||It is quite unreasonable to expect a polished surface to be perfectly reflective.|
|Sealing & Cleaning||
As with any surface, the rule is to quickly wipe off anything which is likely to stain the surface.
|What Bob Says About Laying Your Tiles||The bigger the tile, the more obvious any variations in flatness will be. Don't lay large or long tiles in staggered or brick bond laying patterns - if the tiles are prone to lipping, this will show it up immediately.|
|Australian & International Standards||All tiles sold by Beaumont Tiles are guaranteed to comply with the relevant Australian and International Standards.|

Aussie Made Tiles
Did you know there is one tile factory here in Australia and over 50% of their production is just for Beaumont Tiles, they make them to our specifications, We buy as much locally as the factory can produce, in fact, they increased production runs just for us. We stand behind our Aussie Made Tiles and will continue to add more and more exclusive tiles to our Aussie Made Collections.
We are always happy to stand behind our products. In fact, all first-grade Beaumont Tiles have a lifetime quality guarantee! Because laying tiles is very expensive, we do, however, ask that you inspect your tiles before they are laid to ensure you are happy with them, and have a good cleaning and maintenance regime, including mats to external doors.
Our Hot Tip: Our buyers travel the world looking for the very best in quality and design. When we find tiles we love, we work closely with manufacturers to ensure they are tested thoroughly for quality, performance, durability, and conformity to Australian standards.
We stand behind our products, but if something goes wrong we are here to help - check out our Price Beat & Quality Guarantees.
