Mexican Terracotta

 

Terracotta tiles are a traditional, authentic flooring product that possess a warmth, charm and character that is often missing from more contemporary materials. In the middle ages terracotta was often produced 'on site', but now the best traditional kilns are in Spain and Mexico. Hand-made terracotta tiles are formed by pressing raw clay into molds:this produces a durable but low density tile. Compared with denser alternatives terracotta tiles act as an excellent insulator underfoot, almost eliminating the need for assistance from under-floor heating.

The tiles are supplied unsealed and will need to be sealed with Boiled Linseed Oil after fixing but before grouting.Apart from protecting th etiles it will also deepen and enhance the tone and colour of the tiles.A final wax polish should be appled after grouting  

Our Mexican Terracotta is first quality export grade material made in the same factory for the last 45 years. It is a traditional artesanal product subject to minor surface imperfections and irregularities but it is eseentially a smooth surfaced tile made from the best local clays.It does not have a rough or granular surface.This makes it easy to seal and polish for the competant DIY installer or or builder and there is no need to sandpaper the surface during installation.

Mexican Terracotta has been used in the UK since the 1970s and many floors are still going strong! .If you are trying to match an existing Mexican Terracotta Floor ours are probably the best and most likely match...however all terracotta orders are now sent out on pallets and subject to in minimum charge of £52.00. and stock may well vary in tone, shade, texture and calibration relative to any tiles that may have been purchased in the past.
