Tile Installation Tips
With professional installation, you can trust that the job will get done right, and on time. Before installation begins, we do a free in-home measure and perform a moisture test. Moisture testing is important for all types of installations because a damp subfloor can lead to long-term damage over time.
Different types of tiles can handle moisture better than others. For example, porcelain and sealed stone are more resistant to moisture than ceramic. You want to install a tile that is resistant to moisture in places like your bathroom and even kitchen. When you first speak with our flooring professionals, they can help you to determine the best tile for your project.
Where can Tile be Installed?
With tile, you can have it literally installed anywhere in your home. That would become expensive and impractical though, but it is an example of how versatile tile is as a product. Places that tile does look best in are kitchens and bathrooms, which are the most common rooms you find tile because of its durability and resistance to moisture. You can also install tile in entryways, laundry rooms, and basements.
If you don’t need flooring but want to update your space, ceramic tiles can be installed on your walls as wall tile or as a backsplash. Backsplash tile adds a pop of style to an otherwise dull looking wall. They are easy to clean just like tile flooring, and are a cost effective way to update your space.
Tile in Bathrooms
If you really wanted to, you can have tile flooring, a tile shower, and tile backsplash in your bathroom, but that would be too much. We recommend styling your bathroom where the tile in the shower and floor complement each other. You can also use mosaic tile in your shower and accent it with a backsplash accent behind your sink.
Tile in Kitchens
You should choose tile for your kitchen not because it is the traditional option, but because it comes along with several different benefits. Not only does tile come in stylish options, they all come with basic functionality like being easy to clean, and resistant to stains, moisture and heat. Tile can also withstand a lot of activity, so you can have a kitchen suited for a chef.
