Not sure what’s best for your project? We have the expert guide to choosing the right Saltillo tile for your project.

Here’s a peek at what it looks like during the manufacturing process as it’s laid out for its custom glaze application.

How Whitewash Saltillo Tile Is Made

Our white-stained Saltillo tiles go through a meticulous process to achieve their top-quality finish. Initially, the traditional unsealed clay tiles are coated with the white stain directly into the clay. After that, we mix the stain into our penetrating sealer and apply it to the tile in multiple coats. The result is a beautiful whitewashed Saltillo tile that retains its color through the sealant process. As a trusted leader in Saltillo tile distribution, we take pride in delivering only the finest quality products to our customers.

And, of course, we can custom-glaze tiles with any color. If you’re looking for a specific custom glazed terracotta tile, contact us! We’ll need a few details about your project’s requirements and can discuss pricing details.

Is it challenging to install whitewash Saltillo tiles?

Nope! Installing our white-glazed Saltillo tile is a breeze. There are no extra steps involved in installing these tiles. The tile’s surface is already protected from grout stain with the white glaze coating, so you do not need grout release.

Finally, install the tiles following best practices once you receive your order from our shipping company. We recommend applying a final topcoat sealer, which also seals the grout lines.

    How big can I get this white tile. How long does it take to arrive in Sacramento California

  2. Hi Tammie! We custom make sizes of this tile. It’s normally in stock in our standard 9×12-inch San Felipe Saltillo size. Someone from our team will reach out to you today to gather some details about your project so we can send a price estimate. And yes, we ship worldwide!

  3. Hi Kim – YES! As long as the tile is installed properly and sealer is maintained, it can be used on a shower floor. As a tip, I recommend small size tiles for shower floors. This allows for more grout lines which help to create texture for the floor area. Check out our Saltillo Tile Patterns for some ideas.
