Preparing for installation
The first step of the installation is removing the existing flooring. Depending on the state of your old floor, the length and messiness of this stage will vary. We’ll let you know before the process begins if removal and disposal of the old material is a separate fee or if it is included as part of the installation fee. The next step is to ensure the subfloor is clean, flat, smooth and ready for installation. It is important to note that if the subfloor is not concrete, we'll need to install backer boards before the floor can be installed.
During your installation
The next stage is the installation of the tile or stone. Our installers will cut or trim each tile and spread mortar and grout as they carefully place them. Keep children and pets away from the work area until the job is complete.
After your installation
New tile will need time to cure and solidify, so you will need to wait at least 48 hours after the installation before you can walk on your new flooring. From there, it's up to you to care for and maintain your tile. Although the installation process can be noisy, messy, lengthy, and inconvenient the end result will be well worth it—a beautiful new floor that is yours to enjoy for many years to come.
