If you're thinking about tile flooring for your kitchen or bathroom project in AURORA, here are a few FAQs that you will want to keep in mind before you purchase. These apply more to residential projects.

⦁    Is the floor tile durable? - Although any tile can be used for a floor tile installation project you want to make sure that the tile you select will be able to stand up to the wear and tear of constant use
   For example, a kitchen floor tile will have heavy traffic with its daily use by several persons at one time while a bathroom or powder room floor will see less traffic at once.
   Porcelain tile is the hardest surface tile on the market today and is widely installed for use on commercial and kitchen floors. But be advised that there are some porcelain tiles with very thin finishes that will wear down with constant traffic. When buying porcelain tile, look for a full-body tile with the same color from top to bottom. Ceramic tile will fit into this category.
   On floors with less traffic such as bathrooms and powder rooms, there is no limit to what can be installed. From a softer material such as marble and limestone to granite tile, glass tile mosaic, and of course porcelain tile.

⦁    Does the floor need underlayment? - Yes to most floors. Most home sub-floors are OSB substrates, some plywood, older homes' wood slats, and some residences and basements on concrete slabs.
Our tile installer has the experience to select the correct underlayment for the job. From cement board underlayment to tile underlayment membrane (uncoupling membrane) and self-leveling cement for use on concrete floors.

⦁    Can the tile be tiled over? - Yes in some cases. E.g. Tile that was installed on concrete. Tile that is firmly installed on the existing floor that is rigid with no cracked or loose tiles. However, something to keep in mind is how adding tile will affect the height of adjacent rooms/flooring. The existing tile will need to be prepared before the new tile is installed. 

⦁    Do I need to seal the tile/grout? - Some tiles will need to be sealed such as porous tiles like travertine, marble, granite, and other natural stone tiles. Some ceramic tiles also need to be sealed depending on the glaze of the tile. Porcelain does not need to be sealed.

     For some time all grouts needed to be sealed to help prevent staining and discoloration. However, there are now grouts available that never need to be sealed and come premixed and dry as solid as an epoxy grout, and perform better in steam shower installations.

⦁    How much tile should I buy? - By measuring in inches the width and the length of the floor and multiplying those numbers you can next divide the total by 144 inches which will give you the exact square footage. Add 10% to 15% to the total for extra.

⦁    Should I waterproof the floor? - That's an option that you will need to consider when examining your remodel budget. Depending on the underlayment selected waterproofing can be done when the underlayment is installed. E.g. Schluter-Ditra

However, make sure your waterproofing is installed underneath the bathroom vanity and kitchen cabinets to be effective

PORCELAIN MARBLE TILE INSTALLATION - The basement bathroom remodel floor tile installation is pictured with porcelain marble tile. The layout of the tile is set at a running bond grout joint pattern that mimics a stone floor layout and is a very popular tile trend that is installed in a majority of floor tile jobs that we contract for.

This tile is almost indestructible and gives the beauty and appearance of natural stone floors with the added protection of a non-porous surface that will not warp from water exposure. In this example, the floor underlayment selected is a tile backer 3x5 board that is installed by the tile contractor with a thinset and screwed down to the substrate OSB board.

All of the seams are taped and filled during the installation process. A poly-modified thinset is applied to the back of the tile when installing to ensure full coverage of the materials to the floor.
