Do the samples come sealed?
All of our natural stone, marble and encaustic tile samples will come already sealed with Stone Essentials Stain Block Sealant. This is so that you can see how the final product will actually appear.
Our terracotta tile samples are sealed with Stone Essentials Stone Shield Sealant.
Should I buy a cut tile sample or a full tile sample?
This is a personal preference. If you are just wanting to sense check the colour of a tile, or even the texture and material, then a cut tile sample may suffice. However, if you are wanting to see a tiles full pattern, or how it might appear in different lights around a room, we would recommend purchasing a full tile sample.
Is the sample representative of current stock?
Tiles and natural stone can vary in shade and size from batch to batch, due to production methods or glazes, and so a sample may not be 100% the same as the final product, although we do try our best to reduce this to a minimum.
Can I view your samples and products in a showroom?
YES! We recommend heading to one of our retailers to take a look at samples, it's worth calling ahead to check they have the sample you would like before you make the drive.
Should an order be placed on receiving just a sample and not viewing an actual display in a showroom?
It's always worth viewing an actual display or panel at your local Ca' Pietra retailer. Please note, not all of our products will be on display at any given time, so we would recommend calling your most local showroom ahead of visiting to discuss.
Do you accept returns and refunds on samples?
Unfortunately we do not accept returns and refunds on any of our samples.
