Doing Homes The Right Way

Things to Consider when Hiring a Tile Installer One thing that you must know about tiles is that they do not take much to damage it up. Misplacing a single tile can end throwing the entire project. Installation mistakes cannot be covered easily and can only be set by ripping up the floor and starting over. It is recommendable that you hire a professional to do the work especially if the pattern is complicated or a special edging is involved. Finding the right installer is not as easy as it seems. Here are some things that you should be keen about if you want to find a high-quality installer. Don’t Settle for Anything Less of an Expert Having someone around who can do odd jobs and home repairs and improvement jobs is nice. But this is different with your tile. Find someone who is experienced in tile installation and has at least three years experience and can install both wall and floor tiles.

Large home stores work with customers like you all day long and may not have the knowledge of the current installation methods and any experienced installers. Instead liaise with someone who works closely with contractors, architects , installers, and designers regularly like tile stores or showrooms; they have more experience working directly with qualified tile installers. Check the Insurance, Certification, and Licensure of the Installer Always check to ensure that your prospective installer is certified, licensed and has a current insurance. It is necessary that they have a membership in the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA). Your propespective installer needs to be trained by the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation that trains and assess the installers and certifies they are equipped with the current techniques. Previous Work is Important A picture speaks more than words; let the installer show you sample pictures of completed tasks and be keen on the quality. Be keen to look at the portfolio of your prospective installer and see if they qualify for a great installer. You should be keen to see if the layout is well balanced and if the tiles have been cut, they need to be of the same size even if they are on opposite sides of the room. Do not Buy the Tiles by Yourself There are several ratings and methods that your installer will know much better than you. You may not want to end up with tile that isn’t suited to your application thus let your installer buy the tile. Value Professionalism The world has turned to a lot of casualness and do-it-yourself, but all the same professionalism remains to be the hallmark of a good business. Simple as it may seem, the installers involvement with the community can say a lot about how your project will be handled.
