Tile Installation Guidelines

Before your installation, you should:

  • Remove all furniture before installation day. 
  • If you plan on not being home at the time of installation, please leave instructions as to gaining entry into your home as well as a phone number where you can be reached if needed.
  • Ensure pets and children are not present on installation day.
  • The installation may create a great deal of dust that we cannot entirely control. Therefore, please expect to have to clean the installation and surrounding areas.
  • Gas appliances must be reconnected by your gas supplier.
  • If your new floor is higher than your existing floor, it may be necessary for us to trim the bottom of your doors in order for them to open and close. There will be an additional charge for this.
  • Make sure the job site is clean and ready before we arrive.

We will go over all charges with you prior to installation. There may be additional charges if the installer is asked to perform work that is not part of the original scope or if a problem is revealed that our estimator could not anticipate.

Tile Installation Guidelines

  • Ensure that water is accessible for your team during the tile installation. This is important for the installation/grouting process. 
  • Do not walk on the newly set tile for 24 hours.
  • Allow grout to dry thoroughly before walking on it.
  • If we install natural stone for you, this will need to be sealed.
  • Run a fan to remove installation-related smells. 
  • Stay in touch with our team as needs/questions arise.
