As your local flooring retailer, we always recommend going with professional installers when it comes to flooring. Professional installers have years of experience and are insured, which means you have peace of mind knowing that your floors are being installed correctly and are covered. We also know that our customers what to know what to expect when it comes to installation and what they need to do. Tile flooring may seem like an easy DIY project, but there are small factors and details that seem to be left out that installers always make sure get done.
With all flooring, our installers make sure your subfloors are clean, smooth and dry. Moisture testing is a part of installation and will help determine the type of tile you’ll need for the room you plan on installing it in. A room with a lot of moisture may require a stone or porcelain tile. All moldings, trim, and appliances need to be removed from the room. Door jams are also checked to make sure there is clearance between the bottom of the door and the floor.
Loose laying tile is a way you can determine the layout of your tile flooring. Find the center of your room and use chalk lines to make sure the spaces are centered. After you have laid out the tile loosely and determined which tiles need to be adjusted, the next step is cutting those tiles. This is where professional installers bring in their expertise, and have the tools to correctly cut the tile.
After all is set and has dried for at least 24 hours, you can enjoy your tile floors. Choosing a professional installation is the smart and safe way to ensure your floors are correctly installed so you can enjoy them in your home.
