Preparing for your tile installation


To prepare, you must first empty the room of furniture and any valuables. You'll then need to have your existing flooring removed. We can advise you on this step. Next, we'll need to ensure your subfloor is clean, flat, smooth, and ready for your tile installation. If your subfloor is not concrete, we'll need to install concrete backer boards before moving on to the actual tile installation. Tile requires very particular subfloor preparation, so it's important you don't overlook any of these steps.


During & after your tile installation


The next stage is the actual installation of the tile. Our professional installers here at design. Waterville will carefully cut and trim each tile, spreading grout and mortar and laying each one into place. Once the job is done, your new tile floor will need time to cure and solidify, so you will need to wait at least 48 hours before walking on your new flooring. The result will be worth it!


Tile is durable and beautiful, able to stand up to heavy traffic and moisture. However, it still requires proper care and routine maintenance to keep it in good condition over the years. Learn how to properly clean your tile as well as which products to avoid by clicking here.
