A glazed or unglazed tile made by the extrusion process from natural clay or shale. This tile is most common in dark red shades, however shades of brown and grey are also available. Because quarry tile is fire-hardened and quite hard, it can be cleaned at pressures up to 1,450 PSI as long as the grout is in good condition.

Quarry Tiles are a good choice both indoors and outdoors.

What is Quarry Tile?

Quarry tile is made of clay and usually has a rougher finish than most pressed out ceramic tiles. You can usually spot a quarry tile from the small roller grooves on the back of the tiles where they were extruded out of the machine(think giant pasta machine). Quarry tile is extremely durable and is a great choice for most rooms in your home, especially high traffic areas. When quarry tile is sealed, the tiles become water resistant which makes them a great choice for bathrooms and kitchens too.


Quarry tiles are relatively inexpensive, which makes them great for those on a budget. The durability, combined with the budget savings of quarry tiles, makes them an ideal choice for many homes all around the world. They have become more popular over the last few years as many people want a beautiful floor that is durable and easy to maintain.

A classic hard wearing tile often utilised in high traffic areas such as reception areas and also often used for outdoor patio areas and porches. Although hard wearing quarry tiles are often neglected and hidden under years of grime, however all is not lost as they can be restored.

Sealing Quarry Tiles

Quarry tiles are often unglazed and need to be maintained with sealers. Quarry tile is vulnerable to staining and, like brick can be broken if heavy objects are dropped on it. Tile that has been neglected for a long time may require a professional clean to return the tile to its best possible appearance. Some cleansers are better suited to indoor applications, so please read labels carefully.


  • Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer

(Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

  • Topical Sealer

(Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

A deep penetrating impregnating sealer protects quarry tiles and the grout from water and oil based stains by chemically reacting with the surface pores using nano-technology to create a breathable protective barrier. An impregnating sealer will protect the quarry tile surface and grout from absorbing stains while also resulting in cleaning and maintenance becoming much easier. Australia's Deepshield™ range of impregnating water based sealer's offer long term benefits lasting for up to 10 years while Deepshield™ Gold, based on the latest fluoro-bond technology lasts for up to 15 years. A penetrating impregnating transparent sealer enters the pores of your quarry tile and once cured will not change the look of the tile. A penetrating colour enhancing sealer is designed to enhance and enrich the look of quarry tile surfaces.

Experts Floor Care are the experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your quarry tiles look their absolute best. Experts Floor Care experienced technicians can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealer is also helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer can not be completely removed or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealer's have a life expectancy of around 3 years.

You can easily test how porous your quarry tiles are by applying a drop of water to the surface and watching how the water is absorbed by the quarry. You can then see how any type of water based stain can be absorbed by the quarry tile surface and grout.

Quarry Tile Maintenance

  • Clean your quarry tile thoroughly with a canister vacuum cleaner. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar as this may drag grit across the tiles causing scratches to the sealer or wax.
  • Mop your floor with a cleanser. Consider using an enzyme-based, antibacterial cleanser, particularly if your quarry tile is in the kitchen as these types of cleansers cut grease and eliminate odours.
  • Rinse your mopped floor to remove cleanser residue. It is often a good idea to use soft or distilled water if your tap water has high mineral content since you don't want to leave deposits on your tiles.
  • Wipe your floor dry with towels. This is a useful step to determine if your tile has haze or if it is becoming discoloured.(Wax can become yellowed as it ages.)
  • If your tile floor looks like it has a film on it, add white vinegar to clear water and re-mop your floor. This should remove any haze. Dry the tile again.

Stripping & Sealing Quarry Tiles

In most cases we will be able to chemically remove your existing floor finish and treat any staining and marks that will have occurred due to the ineffectiveness of your current floor seal. When our technicians are satisfied that we have achieved the best results possible- preferably by returning the quarry to its natural state, then we allow a sufficient drying time before applying between 2-4 coats of our specialist quarry tile floor sealer.

Quarry Tile Restoration

Experts Floor Care technicians have years of experience in restoring and refurbishing quarry tile flooring. Even the most neglected quarry tile surfaces can very often be restored with remarkable results. There is only one real way to restore quarry that is by returning the quarry to its natural state, let it dry, then seal it with between 2-4 coats of impregnating penetrating sealer and then apply a surface coating finish. Only this process is able to create a long lasting finish and stain proof your quarry tiles.
