Tile and stone installations can be very complex and labor intensive, requiring specialized tools and materials. Whether you decide to install the tile or stone yourself or hire a professional installer, make sure you understand the different steps of the installation so that you know what to expect during the process.
Once you've made your purchase, a Specialty Flooring representative will be in touch to confirm your installation appointment. He or she will discuss with you everything you need to know prior to your tile installation. In the meantime, however, there are a few things to know.
First, you'll need to prepare the room. While we will move your furniture for you, you'll need to move any fragile items and empty any closets. You'll also want to make sure you handle any other projects, like painting, before your tile installation.
On the day of the installation, someone who is at least 18 years old will need to be home to show the installers to the work area. We'll evaluate the space and make sure your subfloor is ready. Tile has specific subfloor requirements, so this step may take some time.
From there, we'll work on installing your tile. During this time, keep pets and children away from the area until the installation is complete.
After your installation is over, you'll need to stay off your floors for a set amount of time so that the grout can properly cure. We'll let you know how long it'll be before you can start enjoying your new tile!
