Carrara Bianco 2″ Hexagon Honed Mosaic | Out of Stock!

                                                                       Carrara 2″ Bianco Honed | SOLD OUT!
                                                                                       (Sorry) ETA June 15th
                                                                                  Polished in Stock $11.75SF
 

Carrara Bianco 2″ Hexagon  Honed has sold out (polished is in stock).  Please let us expain some of the process involved in creating a premium Italian marble mosaic.  It takes over a millenium for the stone to be created in the Carrara region of Italy.  It is then another seven to eight months to select and wait for the correct blocks to be excavated from the quarry.  Then we have to get enough of the perfect white base gray veining blocks so that when cut they fill a container.  The manufacturing time is four to eight weeks.  Then shipping takes another month.

The entire process (to find the perfect tiles) takes over twelve months.  Then we receive the product sell for a price that is clearly to low and it is sold out within a week of arriving.

Actually you can get a chinese copy remarkably quicker – but it does not look anywhere near as good.  The real McCoy (so to speak) takes twelve to sixteen months.  Our customers wait on backorder for three months.  Availability of a Carrara white base tile is also limited this leads to the additional wait time – a gray base, second quality is a lot quicker to process.

So when will this supreme product be back in stock – Back in stock June 15th 2011 – is it worth the wait?  The next best thing is from Ann Sacks for $50SF – most of our customers are saving between $2,000 and $10,000 – so yes.  I would wait.

Carrara 2″ Hexagon Honed – Free Shipping Ends April 24th

Calacatta Gold – ETA June 31st

 

Calacatta 3×6″ Subway Tile $11.95SF

Calacatta Gold is one of the most requested products and we thought an update was long past due.  The ETA as the title states is the end of May – “oh no” I know that is not great news especially if you are reading this in April.  Finding a Calacatta quarry in Itlay is not that difficult but finding an excellent quarry is, we have turned down quite a few suppliers but settled on one which offered the greatest consistancy and continual avaliability. 

This Calacatta collection will not only offer the greatest value in North America but also a quality and choice that is second to none.  So we at The Builder Depot apologize for the long wait but hope our customers understand why.  Now here is the other issue, while the product is launched in at the end of May availablilty will be limited, it will take us until the fall to get the inventory into a position that can satisfy all the demand and that is a ‘resonable’ demand large purchases by builders or wholesalers will impact supply.

While we will have good supply of Calacatta blocks for many years producing this beautiful stone will never be as easy as Carrara, inventory will always be a little spotty – so if this is something you want we suggest once you order a sample be ready to make the buying descion pretty quickly.

Spring Sale

Carrara Venato 9×18″ Subway Tile

Large format subway tiles in a running brick pattern of herringbone pattern on the floor have grown in huge popularity over the last 18 months.  Large format subway tiles (larger than traditional 3×6″) have less grout lines and can create a less busy appearance.

The Builder Depot offers both 6×12″ and 9×18″ and as a pioneer in large format subway tiles not only the first online store with 9×18″ but also at a price of just $8.00SF offers the lowest price for large format marble tiles in the USA.  9×18″ is generally priced at $40SF or higher.  The only other online competitor is priced at $35SF and it is not a genuie Italian marble.

Buying Carrara Marble Mosaics & Tile easier than ever!

Easy Button – Works on Carrara Tile as well!

Carrara Bianco, Venato Glass or Metal buying online is easier than ever.  Consumers are spending more and more each year in online purchases and are showing with their wallets just how comfortable they are in shopping on the internet. 875 million consumers worldwide have made purchases on the web, up 40% from 627 million two years ago, according to the Nielsen Global Online Survey.

“The Internet is no longer a niche technology-it is mass media and an utterly integrated part of modern life,” says Builder Depot Direct spokesperson. “As our lives become more fractured and cluttered, it isn’t surprising that consumers turn to the unrivalled convenience of the Internet when it comes to researching and buying products.”

The information you need in order to complete a Carrara bathroom remodeling project with Carrara subway tile, Carrara Basketweave or Carrara Hexagon mosaic inserts has become easier to reach these days. It seems as though you can’t even flip through the channels without seeing some sort of home improvement show or some type of remodeling show dedicated to a specific area of the home. Today, the Internet also aids the homeowner with a great deal of information on how to improve the look and feel of your home. Creating a spa like Carrara bathroom is one of the top home remodeling projects in 2009/10.

With the convenience of shopping from home at the top of most shoppers lists consumers are buying everything from electronics, apparel, jewelry, and even furniture from internet showrooms. With this in mind, shopping for a new Spa Carrara bathroom look online can provide access to a much wider selection of items and significantly lower price than one might find at their local tile store or major Home Center. Shopping online with The Builder Depot offers great advantages:

Price:  One of the biggest advantages of buying bathroom or remodeling supplies from The Builder Depot online is the price, The Builder Depot offers prices that cannot be competed with by ‘ANY’ traditional brick and mortar retailer, their cost base which must be passed on to the consumer through the product is just too high.

Many times you will find that the price that you get online is going to be better than the price that you are going to find at your local tile store. For the small items such as trims you may not see a significant price difference but for larger items such as Carrara Hexagon Mosaic you will see a more significant difference – in most cases over 70%. Finally Tax Free shopping online through Builders Depot Direct offers tax free shopping in some cases an immediate saving of up to 9%.

Convenience:  Many homeowners enjoy shopping in the comfort of their own homes because it is much more convenient than shopping with the masses. This especially holds true around the holidays.

Selection:  Our customers look far and wide for tile collections that are unique and appealing to our loyal customers. Some we design ourselves, some we procure from factories where we maintain long-standing relationships. In either case, we endeavor to bring tile collections that offer the highest quality, unique tile designs, and attractive pricing to our customers.

Shipping:  Tile is heavy and therefore in many cases it can be expensive to ship. Through our extensive relationships in the freight industry we are able to offer our customers reduced flat rate shipping to each of the 50 US States for all of the products on our website. We also offer many freight options – we just do not let a computer come up with a flat rate like our competitors that is more than fair for someone who lives 3,000 miles from the warehouse but unfair to someone in the next state, we look at all orders and shipping on a case by case basis.

Fast Delivery:  More than 90% of our products are in-stock and ready to ship immediately. For these items we make every effort to ship them within 24 – 48 hours depending on when we receive your order. Some items can take a bit longer to ship – up to a week during our busy periods on account of demand. But for the most part, orders are shipped quickly and all tracking numbers are provided to our customers so they can track their package from the convenience of their home.

The number one reason consumers say they do not want to shop online is because they cannot feel and look at the product themselves, Builders Depot Direct answers that by offering samples of all their products and encourages our customers to buy samples before any purchase.

Our sample shipping department is particularly unique, shipping 95% of all sample orders in 2009 on the same day – you can read this ‘fast shipping’ comment again and again on our 100% positive EBay and Amazon ratings.

We challenge any potential customer to compare our Venato Carrara product offering to any of our competitors – affordable pricing, customer specific shipping, and fast order turn-around times which all make for a pleasant and hassle free shopping experience saving our customers thousands of dollars while increasing their homes value.
