A well thought out décor scheme should incorporate an equally inspiring tile floor styling design scheme.
Developing such a floor design is really not a complex, time consuming process. By adding simple features or laying patterns your tile floor can quickly become a striking asset. You can create a floor that is as unique as your style.
Experience is a cruel teacher, but beyond reproach.
If you’ve been in the tile contracting trade for any length of time you have got to have become a defensive pessimist, or you have not been paying attention. A tile contractor’s motto must be “Be Prepared.”
When considering bathroom floor surfacing, ceramic or porcelain tile is the obvious best choice. It is simply a no-brainer. The only characteristic of tile I have ever heard mentioned as a reason to avoid it is that it is “cold.” Well, here on Florida’s Treasure Coast, that characteristic is most appreciated.
Ceramic tile offers unmatched beauty, durability and practicality for Port St. Lucie residents. Tile is one of the most durable and maintenance friendly surfaces you can choose for your floors. It will retain its original beauty and luster for years.
Easy to clean, tile is perfect for areas where spills occur or become dirty from heavy traffic. Tile flooring harbors no dust mites, pollen, mold or mildew that can cause allergic reactions. Being resistant to mold and mildew, tile floors are perfect for bathrooms. Where heavy duty cleaning occurs daily and where hardwood or laminate floors are not practical, tile flooring meets the challenge.
Choose Slate for Your St. Lucie Bathroom Flooring.
Slate, a natural stone tile, just might be the ideal surface of choice in the bathroom. When choosing bathroom flooring your main consideration should be functionality, durability, and cost. Slate bathroom flooring scores well when all competing products are considered.
In regard to functionality, the main consideration for bathroom flooring is moisture. There are no moisture problems with slate bathroom flooring. Unlike granite and marble, slate is non-porous. It cleans up very easily and does not have a tendency to harbor bacteria. It won’t absorb liquids, so it won’t stain from cleaners since they can’t penetrate its surface. Slate is highly heat resistant and resistant to etching and scratching. Scratches are easily rubbed out.
When installing tile over newly poured concrete, how long should I wait before installing ceramic tile?
The industry standard is 28 days between concrete pouring and installing ceramic tile. Increasingly tighter timelines make it difficult to adhere to that schedule, so alternate solution are being employed.
One successful system consists of a liquid membrane, with crack-isolation properties, that can be applied over concrete that is just three days old. The membrane is followed by a quick-setting mortar that allows tile or stone to be installed the same day.
