Before Installers Arrive

The arrival of new ceramic tile flooring is no exception, especially when one realizes that tile, like any floor covering, impacts interior beauty, design, décor, comfort, livability and upkeep. It’s a truth of housing: floor coverings can make, or break a home. Being ready for the installation of your new ceramic tile will make the entire process go faster, more efficiently, and hopefully eliminate any “surprises.” Knowing what to expect and being prepared will also be a lot less stressful on you, your family and your home. 

Use a professional

Process begins with foundation preparation:

Process

Grout

  1. after tiles are set and the thinset mortar has fully cured,  joints are filled with grout
  2. sanded and unsanded grouts are used
  3. type of grout used is determined by the tile, grout joint and width
  4. mixture is spread over the tiled area to fill in all the joints
  5. sponge is used to remove excess grout from the surface of the tile
  6. mortar and grout need 24 hours to cure before walking on
