Preparation is Essential Before Tile Installation

  • Our installers will likely need to remove your existing flooring. To minimize dust during this process, vacuum your old floors before they’re removed and vacuum the subfloor underneath thoroughly afterward.
  • Decide who will move your furniture, whether it be your responsibility or that of our team. Be sure to remove all fragile items from the room & don’t leave anything hanging on windows or walls.
  • In general, we’ll recommend that your linear or rectangular tiles run parallel to windows or, in narrow rooms, to the longest wall.

During & After Tile Flooring Installation

Here’s the procedure our experienced installation professionals will follow:

  • We’ll start by preparing the subfloor, which is the most critical step in a good tile installation. Tile must be installed over a subfloor that’s structurally sound, rigid, level, smooth, and clean. Sometimes, cement backer board must be laid first.
  • Installation consists of spreading thin set mortar & placing tiles in it with spacers in between. Grout is either applied the same or the following day.
  • We’ll then carefully clean your tiles, removing excess grout.
  • Once installation is complete, stay off your floors for at last 24 hours – or longer, if advised.

Your flooring specialist will consult with you directly about any additional actions we may recommend before the installation of your new tile floors.
