Asheville Tileworks welcomes your custom tile projects. These may include kitchen backsplashes and counters, bathrooms and showers, fireplace surrounds, or door and window trim. Our clients typically select tile designs and glaze colors from our standard line of Tiles for Display and Gifts and we recommend our field tile made from the same clay body, and the same or complimentary glaze colors. If you would like a design proposal and budget estimate for your project, a design fee may be incurred. We can recommend professional tile setters for the installation. Please contact us – we'd love to help your ideas come to life!
Our custom field tiles can be produced in all sizes up to 8" x 8" to meet your requirements.
Minimum order: $500
Delivery: 8 – 12 weeks
Terms: 15% retainer, 50% to start fabrication, balance on delivery.
Working with Asheville Tileworks: After an initial meeting or conversation with Asheville Tileworks, we will give you a budget estimate for your project. When a design has been approved, and a 50% deposit has been placed, we will measure or confirm all of the detailed project dimensions, and provide you with a final design rendering and glaze color samples for your approval. A production and delivery date for your project tiles will be made. While Asheville Tileworks does not install tile, we can provide you with names and resources for tile installation in our region. Our preference is to personally observe and monitor your tile installation process with you, but this again may be determined by your location.
Specifications: Our tiles are made with a red earthenware clay body and finished with our own hand-mixed glazes. Tiles are approximately 3/8" thick. The actual tile size is approximately 1/8" less than the nominal 8", 6" or 4" dimension. For instance, a 6x6 tile is actually 5-7/8" x 5-7/8." The tiles are heat resistant and water resistant for interior use. All tiles must be properly sealed upon completion of tile installation. We recommend that your tile installer follow the guidelines established by the Tile Council of North America's "Handbook of Ceramic Tile Installation."
Warranty: Asheville Tilework tiles are warranted to the original customer purchase to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of installation. Defects occurring during normal usage, after having been inspected by Asheville Tileworks will be replaced or repaired. Asheville Tileworks is not liable for removal, repair or reinstallations costs. Damage occurring due to improper installation or misuse is not covered under this warranty. Slight variations in size, color, texture or appearance are inherent in our hand-made products and are not considered to be defects in materials or workmanship.
