How to Install Tile
Before your installation begins, our installers will do a moisture test in areas where moisture is high or on an as-needed basis. Bathrooms and basements are the most common areas we test. We always recommend talking to one of our flooring experts about what tile is best for places with a lot of humidity and moisture. For example, porcelain tile are best for bathrooms and laundry rooms because they have a lower absorption rate and will not expand due to contact with moisture. Tiles are normally dry-laid first to make sure they are correctly sized to the room, cut if needed, and then adhered to the floor with tile cement and grouted.
Where can Tile be Installed?
Tile is not just limited to the floors in your home, you can also have tile installed on your walls and outside as a patio. Wall tile is usually made of a specific type of ceramic tile that is light weight and can stick to your walls better. We offer porcelain tile that is durable enough to be used as an outdoor patio.

You can install tile on both your floors and walls, and we even have tile for custom shower stalls. Our flooring experts have an eye for design and can help you plan your next project.
Just like in your bathroom, tile can be installed on both your walls and floors in your kitchen. It is easy to clean, so accidentally spilling or dropping food is no issue, and they can handle heavy appliances.
