The kitchen is the most used room in the house. Using tile in heavily used areas reduces overall owner maintenance while retaining its original beauty throughout the years. Whether it’s your kitchen floor, backsplash or countertops, you’ll love your professionally installed tile for many years to come.
When designing the bathroom of your dreams, don’t forget to beautify your project with long lasting, beautiful tile. We can help you design your bathroom shower, tub surround, wainscot or floor to create the bathroom you desire.
Basement, Foyer, Mud Room and Laundry Room:
Many of these areas are often subject to water intrusion, which could destroy other flooring products. Tile and stone flooring is the best flooring product you can use in these areas. It is resistant to water, durable and will retain its original luster and finish throughout the years.
We also offer hydronic and electric floor heat that can be incorporated into any of our installations. A Radiant heat product is installed underneath your floor and the heat warms the tiles to a set temperature. Many of our customers love the radiant floor heat, which enhances their overall enjoyment of their tile projects.
Important Notes on Waterproofing
Water goes where it wants.
H2O is a determined little molecule; if it can find a way to get through your grout, past your tile, and into the structure of your house, it will. That's why waterproofing your shower installation is so important: if you don't do the job right, the water damage four to eight years down the road may be irreparable.
One common misconception is that if the building materials are tightly set, then water can't get through. Water will use even the tightest cracks and crevices to creep and work its way out in what's known as the Wick Effect. Each time the water creeps in (each time you take a shower, for example), it will open the crevice a little more and leak exponentially faster. The smallest crack or unsealed area will spell disaster. That's why you need a completely watertight system that will allow for no absorption or leaks.
“Water stable” is not waterproof.
Some products, such as cement board, are water stable. This means that they will not warp, swell, or fall apart if exposed to or submerged in water, in the way that plywood or drywall would. But they are not waterproof: water will still absorb into cement board. If all you have between your shower water and your wall studs is cement board, water will wick through to your wood wall studs and cause mold and mildew.
Waterproof materials or rubber membranes are non-porous and will not allow water through. Sealing the seams with the appropriate material, such as polyurethane sealant, will keep your entire installation together.
Grout and tile are not waterproof.
“I have a non-porous tile and non-porous grout. Do I still need to waterproof my shower?”
Yes. Tile and grout should NEVER be relied upon to waterproof a shower installation. Even the highest density tiles and grout were not intended by their manufacturers to be a waterproofing material. There is still a chance that your grout can separate from your tile, creating a tiny leak that can cause huge problems. Even slab walls need to be seamed in the corners, and those corner seams could fail in time. A waterproof substrate is required for ALL shower installations.
