Please ensure you arrive in enough time to complete your selection before closing time.

WHAT WILL YOU SELECT IN OUR SHOWROOM?

DO YOU NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH YOU?
The following items are important and helpful to bring along to your tile selection.
 – House Plans –  This will help with feature tile placement and show the extent of the standard tiling.
 – Addenda – This will advise of your standard inclusions such as tile size and PC allowance, laminates and stone(if applicable).
 – Imagery – Any imagery you have collected from magazines or from the internet in relation to the style you wish to achieve in your new home.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CHANGE MY MIND?
If you wish to change your tile selection after you have already completed a selection form, you would need to come back to our showroom to complete a ‘re-selection’.
You will need to check with your building company before visiting us to reselect, to ask if you can change your tiles or laminates as some builders do not allow changes to be made after you have been to pre-start, and if they do, then a fee may be involved from the builder.
You may also need authorisation from the builder before you can complete a reselection.
Crosby Tiles does not charge you any fees to change your tile selection, however, we do encourage you to be sure before completing an initial selection to avoid any complications or inconvenience with reselections.
