I can't say enough about Rene Cervantes and Exquisite Ceramics. We just completed a project on our back patio with his beautiful hand-made, Spanish terracotta tiles. We are thrilled with the end result. Rene worked with us to develop the precise finish and coloration we were looking for and stopped by the house multiple times to consult with us, our contractor and our tile-layer to make sure installation went smoothly. He's a true professional and is dedicated to a high-level of customer service. I would recommend Exquisite Ceramics to anyone looking for beautiful new or reclaimed terracotta tiles!

The challenges of putting your own touch in a remodel is always difficult. There are so many decisions to make and at times it can be overwhelming. For our family, we decided to pay homage to the artisan tradition and look for a reclaimed product that would best represent a sense of character in our Big Bear vacation home. Character that would exude charm throughout the place.
In our search we came across exquisite ceramics. It should not be a surprise to anyone that there are a lot of companies selling tile out there. A phone call to discuss our project was answered by Rene. The more we talked, the quicker we wanted to visit his location so he could share more of his insight on how to do it. Rene was extremely helpful. He did not persuade us to go in one direction or another. He simply listened to all our questions and concerns and provided his expertise for us to make a decision. Not only did we make a decision to go with a reclaimed Spanish ten by ten terracotta tile, we expanded the project to include the entrance way using a five by nine tile that had finger pulls as the texture. Both choices we a great addition to the character of the home. Even before the tile was finished, the contractor was getting visitors to look at the reclaimed job. Now that it is done, it is a part of the character that makes the home a home. Exquisite Ceramics has a rich selection of product that represent a historical charm and character. In both my wife and I’s opinion, Rene has that same charm and character. Which makes the whole experience that much better. Not too many businesses left where the owner is passionate about what he does. Rene has the passion and knowledge to support the customer in making the right decisions which was extremely helpful to us. Now, we get to enjoy each new visitor to the home comment on how beautiful the place is.

Our experience purchasing our reclaimed spanish terra cotta tile was amazing. Rene was so helpful and went way beyond our expectations and was extremely professional. During the installation he came to our home to make sure the tile was properly installed. We would not hesitate to recommend him and look forward to doing business with him in the future.
If someone would’ve told me when we started our kitchen renovation that my favorite part about it would be the floor tile i wouldn’t have believed it…but that’s exactly what happened. A lot of people compliment us on the cabinets, some people really like the glass front fridge, but EVERYBODY goes crazy over the reclaimed Spanish floor tiles. There are many places you can get Spanish tiles but you simply can’t manufacture authenticity. Rene is such an easy, informative and knowledgeable source for terracotta tile.

We are so fortunate to have found Exquisite Ceramics during the building of our home. The terra cotta tiles are stunning in our entry, powder room, hall and laundry room and give a wonderful, authentic feel to our house which can be very hard to find at an affordable price. Rene is fantastic to deal with- very professional and extremely helpful.

Using Reclaimed Terracotta For Our Remodeling Project Was The Right Decision. The Tiles Look Just Beautiful and Enhances The Spanish Heritage Of Our Santa Barbara Mission Church Complex.

\"I like to imagine the people in Spain who made this tile so long ago. I like to think about if they ever imagined someone in Los Angeles would reuse it 100 years later. I like to wonder if they knew what they were making would be so beautiful.\"

“Even that I didn’t find what I was looking for, René made sure to provide me with all the information of where to go to complete my project, the service I received from Exquisite Ceramics was way better than I was expecting considering that, at this time, they didn’t do any business with us. They walked the extra mile anyway.”

We love the fine sophistication of European styling in the hand painted ceramic tiles that we include in our designs for our sophisticated clients. Exquisite Ceramics has been very professional and helpful in making sure that everyone understands the nature of our order, in providing samples for approval, and in assuring delivery of the finished product on time.

Building from the ground up can often take months extra due to special orders and materials not being correct. This is NEVER the case when we use Exquisite Ceramics. Their factory gives accurate information on the expected time of arrival and passage through customs and we can always expect our order to be shipped on time and with very few snags along the way. So far, they are by far one of the best vendors we have worked with

Beginning a new project of building from the ground up needs weeks, if not months, of special planning and working with many different factories, giving the designer the opportunity to customize materials and draw up a customized time frame. For a project to be successful it is very important to work with Factories that are experienced and supportive, as is the case when working with Exquisite Ceramics. They have great customer service and handle all our custom orders professionally. We know that our orders will be shipped accurately and arrive in the time frame we were quoted. It is a pleasure doing business with Exquisite Ceramics, knowing that we can always count on them.

I have discovered in my dealings with Exquisite Ceramics that Rene has gone above and beyond the requirements to make absolutely sure that I was satisfied with my purchase of imported marble from Europe. I received the finest quality always within budget. I would recommend Exquisite Ceramics to anyone searching for exquisite items from Spain.

During the remodeling of our new offices in downtown Los Angeles, our designer and Exquisite Ceramics were always willing to help us in any needs we had during the project. The materials which Exquisite Ceramics carries are hard to find elsewhere, particularly with the reasonable prices they offer. We are very glad to have counted on them.
