Installing tiles is not a cakewalk. It takes professional experience in doing so. Just like thinking creatively is necessary while choosing tiles, similarly, technical knowledge is crucial for installing tiles. Laying tiles does not mean placing them on wet concrete floor. It involves a lot of labour to install them. However, tiles are packaged nicely and transporting them is not difficult, but one needs to be extremely careful while laying them. www.aglasiangranito.com

Protect from damages www.aglasiangranito.com   It is essential for home-owners to know the correct way to lay them to keep a check on labourers. It is possible that sometimes the labourers would work in an unprofessional manner to wind up their construction. This can hamper the application of tiles and cause damage. These tiles can later chip or break or even collapse completely.

No gaps  Ceramic tile needs to be installed over a subfloor which is less than 1 1/8 inches thick. It is essential to know the basic idea of flooring. Even a slight gap between them can chip of the corner and further damage the whole look. Imagine chipped tiles on your floor, wouldn’t that look unappealing? Thus, it’s best to take care when the labourers are laying tiles. www.aglasiangranito.com

Leave it for sometime After applying tiles, it is necessary to leave the space as it is for some time. Hence, it’s highly recommended to start applying them from the corner and end it on the place from where you can easily move out of the space. Moving over tiles that are recently applied can ruin their positioning and alignment. Thus, it is best to leave the place alienated for a while.   www.aglasiangranito.com

Symmetry Arranging tiles in a symmetrical manner is very necessary. Tiles cannot be easily adjusted on the floor. Sometimes they need to be properly furnished to adjust them into small spaces. The sharp edges need to be given a curve if necessary. www.aglasiangranito.com

Leftover Do not throw away the leftover edges of tiles. It is better to save these edges and strips for future use. These can also be used to fill the corners on the wall or to stick on the lower end of the wall for a better finish. www.aglasiangranito.com
