Calculating

Quantities

There are some basic rules of thumb in calculating the correct amount of flooring to order. First calculate the square footage. To do that, measure the length and width of the room, round them up to the closest foot and then multiply them together. If you are going to be placing the tiles so they are parallel with a wall, then you should add 7 -10% extra square footage to your order. If you are going to place your tiles on a diagonal to the walls, then you should add 15-20% extra square footage. This extra is your allowance for cuts you’ll need to make, errors and plus a few extras for possible future replacements. Please remember that our custom manufacturing process is a batch process and an exact color match request to your existing cork flooring is difficult. Additionally, you’ll have to wait for another production cycle to get the extra tiles. It is much safer to order enough flooring the first time.

Beveled Edges

Our tiles can be manufactured with a beveled edge. The thickness of our tiles is 4 mm or approximately 3/16″. Our sales staff will be happy to discuss your plans and provide guidance on ordering.

There is a 30 square foot minimum. As we are essentially custom manufacturing your order, there are no full carton requirements nor carton breakage charges for the glue-down tiles.

Shipping

Shipping and handling charges are in addition to the tile prices. F.O.B. from the New York manufacturing plant. The tiles are very light weight and between 80-100 sf of tiles can be placed in each shipping box.
