Interior and exterior* walls (vertical and horizontal surfaces).  Wet spaces like shower walls, and kitchen backsplashes. Fireplace faces and hearths, however they cannot be used inside the fireplace box. We do not recommend these tiles for flooring, including shower floors.

Note: interior/exterior specification - OK for freeze/thaw. 


What color grout should I use?

We recommend Mapei’s Ultracolor Plus FA. clé has recommended specific glaze colors for and they are located on each Liberty Glazed Brick’s product page.  However, color selection is always up to our client or their design professional. You may use lighter or darker grout colors based on your project’s needs.  


What size grout joint should I use?

We recommend a ⅜” grout joint which allows for 6 tiles per square foot. Smaller grout joints can be used but are not recommended. Should your project require a smaller joint, additional tiles will need to be ordered.

For the majority of applications, Liberty Glazed Brick doesn’t need to be sealed, however, for backsplashes many clients prefer to seal the grout joints for easier cleaning.


Do you have additional installation information?

Installation methods should conform to the Tile Council of America “Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation” (current edition). Tiles from several different cartons should be mixed to achieve the best overall blend.
