Cement Care

Popham Design’s encaustic cement tiles are handcrafted in Marrakech. The beauty of the handmade process results in subtle variations in colour and pattern. 

When considered tile by tile, these variations can be displeasing, but when the entire installation is considered, the effect is nuanced and rich. 

Tiles retain moisture from the manufacturing process and will dry to their correct colour a few days after installation. 

The final installed patina differs from the raw state of the tiles, and it is important to follow the steps below to ensure this result is achieved. Exterior applications may experience some fading over time due to UV exposure and more pronounced in the blue and green colours. 

Cement tile installation is not difficult, but it does require care. Installation of a cement tile floor should be the final step in a renovation project.Installation
