HOW TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH PORTSTONE YOU WILL NEEDMultiply the width of the room by the length of the room. If your area has offsets and is irregular in shape, break it down into imaginary rectangular areas and figure each rectangle seperately and then add them all together. This will give you the actual square footage to be covered. Once you have determined your actual square footage, you will need to make allowances for waste. We normally recommend figuring about 8% for waste. We don't want you to have to purchase too much PortStone, but you do want to be sure to have enough in your original order to complete the job. If you have to re-order more material, please be aware that there can be visual differences in each run. These differences may not be noticable if the two areas do not connect, but can become noticable when a "new" batch is laid adjacent to an "old" batch.HOW TO GET A SAMPLESamples are $25.00 each. This includes standard UPS shipping and handling costs. We try to send samples in the pattern and color requested, however sometimes we may not have a particular color in a particular pattern. If that is the case, we will send the color requested in whatever pattern we have available in sample material. Otherwise, there could be an extended waiting period until we run the color and pattern combination requested. We typically try to get samples out within 48 hours of receipt of payment unless it happens to be something of which we don't have sample material readily on hand. In those rare cases, we tell you in advance and will get the sample out just as soon as we possibly can.HOW TO PLACE AN ORDERThe easiest way to place an order is to just give us a call at 601-922-0902 to order directly from us, the manufacturer. We can walk you though the whole process while making sure that you get precisely what you are looking for. You can use the chart below to figure how much material you will need, but we will cover all of that again with you when you place your order by phone. All you really have to do is tell us which pattern and which color you want, along with the size area you need to cover, and we can take it from there. Each PortStone floor is made to order. And each order is typically made in the order in which it is recieved. We normally run about two to three week out. Each order must be paid for when the order is placed. That gets your floor in line to be manufactured. SHIPPINGWe ship direct to all areas of the continental United States. The shipping costs are based on weight and distance, so these charges will depend on the size of your order and your location. Each order will be shipped on one or more pallets, crated in a plywood container. This is to insure that we have done all we can to properly prepare your order for shipping. In the unlikely event that your order should arrive damaged in shipping, contact us immediately, preferably while the truck driver is still there and we will help you get things resolved in the quickest way possible.OTHER MATERIAL NEEDED TO COMPLETE YOUR FLOORFor interior floors, you will also need some sealer and floor finish. These are two separate items and both are very easy to apply. (See installation instructions). Both the sealer and floor finish are ordered from us when you order your PortStone floor.You will also need thin-set mortar and grout. We carry a very good grade of polymer modified flexible multi-purpose thin-set mortar which works extremely well with PortStone. We also carry a grout mix that is specially formulated to handle the grout joint widths typically found in PortStone floors. Since the vast majority of all PortStone floors are done in Natural Grey grout, this is the only color we carry. You can, of course, use any color sanded grout you choose, but please bear in mind that grout colors other than natural grey can significantly change the look of your PortStone floor and some grouts are not designed to withstand the grout widths found in a typical PortStone floor. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THE USE OF EPOXY GROUTS. WE ALSO DO NOT RECOMMEND USING SPECTRALOCK GROUT MIX with PortStone.SEALER, FLOOR FINISH, THIN-SET & GROUT REQUIREMENTSPortStone SC-25 Sealer (25% solids content solvent based) - approxmately 300 sq. ft. coverage per gal. 1 coat on interior floors, 2 coats for exterior use.
