Who We Are

 

 

What kind of selection do you offer?
With over 4,000 square feet of showroom space we offer a wide variety of products including natural lime stones, marbles, slate, onyx, granites, recycled glass mosaics, porcelain tiles, hand glazed ceramics, decorative metals, and hand painted decorative tiles.

 

Do I need an appointment when visiting your showroom?
You are always welcome to come and browse our showroom during our business hours. Most of our clients find it helpful to schedule a design appointment with one of our 3 interior designers so we know when to expect you and are prepared with uninterrupted time set aside for you to assist in making your tile selections and to fill out the necessary paperwork for you.

 

What can I expect from Triangle Tile & Stone of NC, LLC designer during my scheduled appointment?
Our interior design staff members will guide you through the selection process making suggestions on materials, pattern, design, grout colors, accents, and all details pertaining to your project. We can explain the advantages or disadvantages of using different materials in various applications along with maintenance and upkeep issues involved with products. We also take care of filling out the necessary paperwork involved in the selection process and getting that to you, your contractor, or builder.

 

What is helpful to bring along for my scheduled appointment?
If building new construction it is helpful to bring your house floor plan, cabinetry samples, countertop samples, paint color ideas, allowances the builder has given you and anything else that may influence the tile decisions. If remodeling it is helpful to bring pictures of your space, existing tile if you are coordinating with older tiles and existing paint colors or wallpaper.

 

How long does a typical appointment take?
We like to set aside at least an hour for your appointment depending on the type of project you are working on. A full house selection may take a few hours. We never want to have you feel rushed through the process. There are a lot of products to look at and details to discuss so it is important to take the necessary time. Some of our clients take an extended lunch hour or break early from their work day to come meet with us for their design appointment.

 

Can I check out samples?
We encourage you to check out product samples in order for you to see them in your lighting and setting of your home or space. We offer loose pieces of most of our field tiles and decorative products. While we do need these samples back, in general we have a one week check out time frame for most items.

 

Do you stock any products?
We stock a huge variety of porcelains in numerous sizes and shapes including the bullnose to go with each series. We also offer accents including decorative glass mosaics, chair rails and pencils, stone borders, harlequins, limestone and slate mosaics. We also usually have a great section of Closeout materials we are trying to get rid of at great rock bottom prices.

 

Is there a quality difference between the material you stock and the material you special order?
Absolutely not! We bring in large quantities for our stocking program and therefore can reduce the prices but this does not equate to a quality difference. Most of our special orders arrive within a week depending on the vendor and whether or not it needs to be made to order. Freight charges are applied to special orders.


What are your office hours?
The showroom is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. Our warehouse is open for pick ups Monday through Friday 7:30am to 5pm.

 

Do you offer setting materials for my tile project?
We offer everything you need for setting materials to complete your tile project including thinset, mastic, perma base backerboard, crack suppressant, floor mud, shower pan liners, slopes for shower pans, spacers, trowels, grout and much more.

 

Are you open on the weekend?
We have found that being open on the weekend does not create the atmosphere in the showroom necessary for our clients to accomplish their needs. We strive to give you one on one personal attention and service when you are in working with our design staff. With weekend hours, the volume of people would not allow us to give you that personal attention you deserve and your time may be wasted.

 

How are you compared to Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement Store?
We try to set our quality and service apart from the “Big Box” stores. With more hands-on control over our inventory and material selection offered you will not have the issue of “here today and gone tomorrow” material. Did you ever notice that Home Depot and Lowes often don’t offer the bullnose edging to finish off the edges of your wall application tile job? How frustrating to find a product you love and then not have all of the parts and pieces you need to get a finished project. We offer all of the parts and pieces necessary to achieve a finished looking project. We also strive to give you one on one personal attention and design assistance when visiting our showroom which exceeds anything available at a big box store.

 

Do you install as a company?
At Triangle Tile & Stone of NC, LLC we do not employ tile installers. We do have an extensive referral list of professional tile installers who have been in the area for years and have built wonderful reputations for their excellence in tile and stone installation work. We will give you names based on the type of project you are working on in order to have the best fit for your needs.
