What is handmade terracotta?
Handmade terracotta tiles like all the other handcrafted clay floor tiles are not provided with the European anti-freeze certification that certifies the frost-thaw-resistance of the floor up to 100 kg, thus guaranteeing that its surface remains unaffected by craters and clefts. For this reason these regulations are not valid, since they refer to a handmade product that is unique and unrepeatable. Only do industrial machine-pressed terracotta tiles resist to such extreme conditions, because they are machine-pressed. Whereas handmade terracotta tiles also called “soft paste terracotta” are a kind of hand-pressed terracotta tiles that develop some little craters and clefts on their own surface after the 50th freeze – thaw cycle. Handmade terracotta tiles however have always been used for external flooring and also for typical Tuscan roof covering, thanks to their high resistance to frost. As a matter of fact if installed on a slight sloping surface they resist to stagnant water and to water infiltration’s. For this reason Terracotta tiles are frost proof suitable for outdoor use.
Our Exclusive Presealed Terracotta
Our exclusive presealed terracotta tiles are individually treated by hand with one coating of boiled linseed oil then another three coating of stone sealant, during each step the tiles left to dry before another coating is applied which gives it the lovely rustic finish.
This a special ‘high-build’ treatment method giving excellent performance, longevity, flexibility and outstanding results on natural handmade terracotta.
We have developed this exclusive range to reduce the cost for our customers & make life easier (no further treatment/sealing needed). It also provides a resilient protective layer against water, dust, dirt and a variety of commonly found household contaminants.
