Trust us with your tile installation!
We highly recommend a professional tile installation by our experts here at Hill’s Interiors. Tile and stone installation can be very complex and labor intensive, requiring specialized tools and materials. We'll talk you through the entire process so you can properly prepare your home. We'll also send out a professional in advance to measure & inspect the rooms, check if there is anything that could prevent the installation from going smoothly, and determine how much tile will be required for the job.
The tile installation process
The first step of the installation is to remove your existing flooring. Depending on the state of your old floor, the length and messiness of this stage will vary. We’ll then work to ensure the subfloor is clean, flat, smooth, and ready for installation.
It is important to note that if the subfloor is not concrete, then this may require the installation of concrete backer boards before the floor can be installed. If this is the case, the height of your floors may vary, requiring different transitions between rooms. This process will involve cleaning, fixing any cracks, and letting any new concrete cure.
The next stage is the installation of the tile or stone. Our installers will cut or trim the tiles and spread mortar and grout as they lay the tile. New tile installations need time to cure and solidify, so even after the installation team has left your home, it will still take at least 48 hours until your floors can be walked on.
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 more years to come.
