South Texas Saltillo Connection gives customers the option of choosing from several types of stone and also allows for custom orders.
South Texas Saltillo Connection (STSC) imports Saltillo tile from a manufacturing facility in Mexico. Saltillo tile is the familiar terra cotta tile that varies in color from golden to red. The unique color patterns of the natural stone are what make Saltillo tile unique and beautiful.
South Texas Saltillo Connection offers customers three different varieties of Saltillo tile.
Two additional types of stone tile available at South Texas Saltillo Connection are Cantera and travertine. Cantera stone is a soft stone that can be cut into floor tiles. The stone is originally formed from volcanic ash and silt. STSC carries travertine stone tiles, which are cut from harder stone. Travertine can be distinguished by veining throughout the stone.
All of the above-mentioned tiles can be purchased sealed or unsealed. STSC recommends homeowners add an extra final coat of tile sealer, even if the tile has been previously sealed. The company sells several types of sealer. A non-slip version of sealer especially for outdoor tile is an option.
South Texas Saltillo Connection does not offer a specific warranty; Mexican tile is fragile and STSC recommends that buyers purchase ten to fifteen percent more tile than is estimated for the installation.
