Frequently Asked Dallas Tile Installation Questions
Is It Worthwhile to Save a Few Extra Pieces From My Dallas Tile Installation?
Absolutely, yes. It's always a good idea to save a few spares. Tile is very durable and long-lasting, but it's not impervious to all varieties of damage. If you accidentally drop a heavy piece of furniture on your floor and smash a tile, for example, it's a lot faster and simpler to have your handyman simply replace that one piece rather than the entire tile installation. Dallas, TX homeowners sometimes assume it will be a simple matter to just go buy another matching piece, but it's usually not that easy. Finishing materials are often discontinued, so the right brand and style may not be manufactured in a few years when you need it. Since tiles are made in lots, the same model from a different lot may not even be a satisfactory match. That is why, whenever you have a Dallas tile installation done, you should make sure to save a few extra pieces in case you need them to replace broken tiles. It's a lot more cost-effective to just have a spare on hand rather than having to remove and replace the entire installation because of one damaged piece.
Can You Do My Tile Installation Without Grout Lines?
It's technically possible, but most Dallas tile installers would tell you it's really not the best idea. You probably wouldn't be happy with the results in the long run, and they wouldn't meet professional standards for Dallas tile installation. You may not like the appearance of grout or the chore of cleaning it, but there are three reasons why it needs to be there:
- The pieces are never completely identical in size, and grout lines disguise the discrepancy while making them look uniform. Without grout, the entire Dallas tile installation will look crooked.
- It's normal for a building to move as it settles, and grout accommodates that building’s movement. It prevents the pieces from grinding into each other, which would cause chipping and cracking.
- Grout eliminates tiny cracks between pieces that are beacons for dirt, bacteria, mildew and other unwelcome substances.
How Long Do I Have to Wait Before Walking On a New Tile Installation?
While it makes perfect sense that you want to try out your new floor surface as soon as possible, it's important to stay off of it completely for at least 24 hours. Each individual piece is resting on a bed of thin-set mortar that needs a minimum of 24 hours to properly harden and cure. If you step on it while the mortar is still soft, corners and edges of pieces will get pressed into the mortar and cause the other side of the pieces to lift up, resulting in a very uneven surface that looks terrible and presents a serious tripping hazard.
