Rustic Cement Tile Pavers

You've changed the clocks, you've voted, the election season is over and fall is in full swing. Time to sit back, relax and get ready for Thanksgiving and the holidays. . . your next tile project. I know it's a busy time of year. However, I couldn't wait any longer to introduce our newest line of cement tiles, Rustic Cement Tiles Pavers.

Right away you'll notice that these Cement Tile Pavers have a handmade appearance with a slightly irregular edge, face and finish that creates a rustic look. They have the rich look of classic clay bisque tiles that have been used in Spain, the Mediterranean, and northern Africa for centuries. With these pavers, you get the best of both worlds: the look of clay bisque and the benefit of cement. Cement tiles offer durability and strength, a broader color pallet, and sizes and shapes that can be adapted to any decor and environment.

Where to Use Cement Tile Pavers

This line of cement tiles is our most versatile ever. It can be used on wall and floor applications for both indoor and outdoor applications. It is also rated for pedestrian and light vehicular traffic so it's great for commercial locations and driveways, too! Unlike most other cement products it's also rated for freeze/thaw cycles. What does all this mean for you? Basically, you can use this tile just about anywhere and you'll see fantastic results. Because cement tile is porous, you will need to apply a penetrating sealer to protect them from staining and preserve their color and original appearance.

These tiles are made in the USA and the majority of raw materials are locally sourced to minimize transportation impact. Cement for these tiles is supplied by an Energy Star Certified factory and include varying amounts of recycled content.

Rustic Cement Tile Paver Formats

Our Rustic Cement Tile Pavers come in various square and rectangular formats. All tiles are 3/4" thick nominal thickness. You'll find square formats from 2"x2" to 16"x16"; rectangular formats from 2"x4" to 8"x16".

Rustic Cement Tile Paver Colors

Unlike Spanish pavers, these tiles are available in thirty colors and two blends. The colors are available in two styles: solid or flash. The Paver Color Palette includes classic bisque colors in terracotta, red and brown hues that provide traditional style. These classic styles take their cues from clay bisque that would be historically used to make Saltillo tile, brown Spanish pavers, and red clay tiles. You'll also find an extensive collection of more contemporary colors including subtle greys, green, plum, rust and tan.

Expect variation in all the colors because this is a hand-crafted product that replicates natural variations that you would find in many clay products, like Saltillo tile. The flash colors are intended to exhibit a high degree of variation in both the shade, tone and saturation of the color. These tiles have "through-body" color because, the color goes all the way through the tile. The color is added to the concrete during the mixing process.
