Help finding tile....

Hello,

I just bought a house here in the Phoenix area. It was built in 2006 and most of the house was tiled in what's called Montana Noce Grade B 18". The distributor is LDI. I want to finish the last of the common areas and I'm thinking about some other areas too. I hope someone will be able to help me find this tile. Thanks in advance.

Even if they still make that tile; you'll never match the dye lot.
Either contact LDI for that tile, or one from the same series for continuty, or go with something completely different.

Wow, that sucks. Is this true? Am I better off just putting in a border and then laying wood or something within this area? It's about 273sqf within the great room. Anyone have any ideas. The tile is very neutral almost too light for my taste. A neutral carpet is there now, but I hate carpet.

Does anyone know how I can contact this LDI Distributors or LDI Distributing?

Thanks in advance.

Could you...

Make a contrasting tile border, then lay the new tile to that edge to offset the shade variation between old/new?

Or go with something totally different since you don't care for the current tile much to begin with?

Do you know who your builder was for your neighborhood?
If so, they know who installed the tile. That company will know where it came from.
I still like the border idea, and a different tile design in the new area.
I searched everywhere I could think of and noone lists this company. Is there any other identifying info you can give us?

Have you tried Monterrey Tile in Gilbert (480) 507-7966 or Arizona Tile in Tempe 480) 893-9393?
