The Davenport Series is a glazed porcelain that emulates a vein-cut sandstone. It provides a clean modern look to any environment. There can be noticeable variances between pieces so it is important and recommended that a range of this product be viewed before finalizing a purchase. When mixing sizes within a series shade texture and calibration differences should be expected. Because this material is a porcelain product minimal maintenance is required. This series is suitable for residential and commercial applications. For proper bonding LHT/LFT mortar for large format and heavy tiles should be used when installing tiles with a dimensional length greater than 15" and rectangular shape and plank tile per industry standards. Proper thinset coverage is also necessary and in some cases back buttering of the tile may be required.
