The installers will review placement, designs, and layouts before installing the tile. It is important that you review these with the installer.
Your tile or natural stone installation may take several days depending on the size and complexity of the project. The installers will need to remove the existing floors, and they may use tools that generate noise and dust.
Following the removal of the existing floor, the installers prep the floors for your new tile or natural stone product to ensure that the new floor is supported and protected from any potential moisture. The preparation may include water proofing membranes, mortars, and grouts, all of which require time to cure before moving onto the next step.
Tiles are set in a mortar cement. This process does take some time depending on the size of the project and can take 24-48 hours to completely set cure.
The area of installation must be climate controlled (heated or air conditioned). Indoor humidity should be maintained between 45-65%.
After your new tile is installed, quarter round trim will likely need to be installed along the baseboards. This trim is installed primed white and you will need to paint the quarter round to match your existing baseboards. Wood colored trim will be stained by us with the closest color match your existing baseboard.
