- Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade, finish, etc. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes or packages when installing. Your contractor should be able to lay down the tiles prior to installing to get the required shade variance. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions. Natural stones may be characterized by dry seams and pits that are often filled. The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary and important to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer. After installation, vendor disclaims any liabilities
