As far as the actual installation of tile goes, we’re asked all the time about our tips and techniques. This makes sense as we are expert tile installers. The few, simple guidelines that we adhere to are easy and full of common sense, built up over years of experience in getting the job done.
- Right tools, right job. The first and most important aspect of a successful project is ensuring that any need that you may encounter is covered before you begin your project. For installing tile, ensure that you have the various necessary hand tools, enough adhesive, the tiles themselves in enough numbers to get the job done and a clean and clear surface to adhere them to. Stopping in the middle of a job to run out and gather more supplies can have disastrous results.
- Ventilation. Some of these adhesives can be quite abrasive to the senses. Ensure that your workspace is properly ventilated before you begin.
- Right tiles. Installing ceramic tile, or any form of tile, is a labor intensive venture. You should be certain that the tile you install is the tile that you want. Before you begin digging into your walls and adhering new tile, ensure that this new tile is what you want, without a doubt. If there is a doubt, do not install!
